Win a $500 Gift Certificate for a 2017 Leech Lake or Lake Superior Vacation!

Hello All!

In February of 2016 I participated in my first mission trip to Puerto Penasco/Rocky Point, Mexico. I traveled with my fiance’ Rachel and a group of 16 others to help build a home for a family in need. We worked with 1Mission out of Phoenix. This was my first experience of truly understanding how blessed we are to live where we do and in the conditions we take for granted each day.

What an incredible experience this was for us and we’re blessed to be leading another group back to Mexico in January 2017!

After the tragic shootings in Dallas, Baton Rouge, and so close to home in St. Paul, I feel this trip has taken on even more meaning for our group- one of coming together to heal and share love. I have a strong calling to involve my businesses along with the great people I get to serve- which is where you come in!

We’re raffling off $1,000 in vacation gift certificates! Two people will have the opportunity to win a $500 gift certificate that can be used towards either of our homes for a 2016/2017 vacation.

You can choose to go to Loon Lodge on Lake Superior in Lutsen, MN or Loon Lodge on Leech Lake in Walker, MN. The $500 can be used towards all or a portion of your rental fees including lodging, bringing your dog, bringing extra people, etc.

How to Get in on the Raffle 2016-08-05 18.12.15

For every $25 tax deductible online donation you make towards our mission trip, we’ll enter your name into the drawing once.

Donate $50- you’ll go in twice. $100? You’re in four times!

Win a Vacation at Loon Lodge in Walker or Aspenwood in Lutsen!

Update 1/13/16- I’ve added the month of October (yes PEAK fall colors and Leech lake fall fishing) to the dates you can choose from!!

Happy New Year!

I’m proud to announce that I’ll be traveling to Mexico on my first mission trip to help build two homes for families in need. On Feb. 12th, with a group of about 25 people, I’ll travel to Puerto Peñasco and work with http://1mission.org/. Watch the video below to see exactly what we’ll be up to…

Our group needs to raise about $19,000 to pay for the home’s materials, our housing while in country and travel costs. To help do that I’ve decided to auction off a couple of trips to my vacation rental homes!

I’ve been getting a lot of questions so thought I’d put up an FAQ section:

What is the minimum bid? There is none but I’d suggest starting at $100/trip.

What is a reserve? I have a minimum price I’ll release the trips for. If you bid and the reserve/minimum isn’t met, you don’t win or owe anything. My reserve is a fraction of the retail value :-).

When do I pick my dates? If you’re the winning bid we’ll look at the calendar to confirm the date you want is available. If it isn’t available, you don’t have to purchase the trip.

Can I use a Reward Point to extend the trip? If you’re a past renter and have a reward point, yes you can use it to add on another free night!

If I bid and don’t win do I have to pay that money? No

Can I make a donation without bidding on a trip? Absolutely! We’re working with two churches you can make a donation to. You can call or text me at 612-221-2424 or email me and I’ll give you details.
