APTA Safari Raffle for Charity
At the 2019 APTA Forum in Chicago, the raffle Grand Prize was won by the Midwest’s Ron Cohen. Due to various circumstances, Ron is unable to take the trip and has donated it to the Midwest Chapter. The suppliers have graciously extended the trip validity and allowed us to transfer the award to another person. That person MUST be an Active APTA Individual Member at both the time of winning the award and at the time of travel. The award is for two people sharing and will be non-transferable and not extendable.

The raffle is open to all active APTA Individual Members and the winner will be drawn live at the APTA Midwest Chapter’s January “Virtual Bush Party”. The award is valid for travel until December 15, 2021, however, there are some exclusions/blackout dates.

Net proceeds from the raffle will be donated to foundations/charities in Africa which are supported by the companies who provided the awarded accommodations.
