Thompson Okanagan Getaway Giveaway

Comments 23 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last month I sent John Biehler in my place on a tour of the Thompson Okanagan including stops in Kelowna and Kamloops. He enjoyed wine tastings, wilderness explorations, and choice craft beers from the region thanks to the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA).

Aside from tongue-tingling ales and delicious dinners the participants on this trip were also given a prize pack to give away once they returned home. As such, I have a remarkable getaway giveaway up for grabs that includes:

  • One night’s accommodation for two at Accent Inns
  • A ‘Red and White Vinotherapy’ spa lotion and 20 “Spa Dollars” from Beyond Wrapture Spa in Kelowna
  • On night’s accomodation for two at the Best Western in Kelowna
  • An Okanagan wine cheese plate made from recycled VQA Wine bottles
  • One bottle of Okanagan-Similkameen wine from the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society
  • Complementary upgrade to one bedroom executive suite for two people and a $25 Chop gift certificate from the Sandman Group Kelowna & Chop Restaurant
  • One body butter cream sample from Smudge
  • $10 coupon towards a wine purchase at the wine shop and a tasting and tour gift certificate from Summerhill Pyramid Winery
  • A copy of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association 2010 Vacation Guide
  • One nights’ accommodation in a complementary suite and a $50 credit at the wine bar from Watermark Beach Resort
  • A copy of Wineries Refined Magazine, Fall/Winter 2010
  • The total package value is about $650 and would make for one exciting tour of the region for either yourself or a lucky gift recipient this Christmas.
