Close up 2014 basket 007We are so thankful for the support we’ve received from the community for the student’s trip to Washington DC for the Close Up conference in April.  With just one month to go until the departure, the students are in full and final fundraising mode to finance the lodging, tuition and airfare for the trip.

Thank you especially to the following sponsors who generously donated the following items for the grand basket raffle!  As you can see, there is a TON of value in these items, and anyone who lives or visits Seldovia, Homer or Anchorage will greatly enjoy spoiling themselves with these wonderful gifts, stays and travel certificates!
