Raffle Winner Drawn at Book Across the Bay

This year's Book Across the Bay, an event to raise money for community programs, was held on Valentine's Day. The "Book" is open for both competitive and non-competitive skiing, snowshoeing, running, and walking. The Bad River Watershed Association had its display booth in the registration tent this year. We were pleased to see that, in spite of a cold and windy morning, a great number of people came to the event, many from other states.

BRWA held a raffle at the event for a package including a one-night stay at the new Blue Wave facility in Ashland, two equipment rentals from Solstice Outdoors, 2016 Book Across the Bay registration, a $25 gift certificate from the Delta Diner, a winter hat embroidered with the BRWA logo donated by Heart Graphics of Ashland, a Penokee Mountain calendar by Joel Austin, one pound of wild rice from the Bad River/Kakagon Sloughs, and a quart of maple syrup donated by Bobbi Rongstad. Our thanks to everyone who donated toward this awesome raffle package, and to everyone who purchased raffle tickets. BRWA raised $850 from this event. Ana Tochterman was the lucky raffle winner! Congratulations, Ana!
