Win a dream trip to Camden, Maine


Wow! Purchase a $50 raffle ticket and if you’re lucky, you may win a Maine Dream Vacation, an all-inclusive four-day dream vacation in Camden, Maine, valued at $6,000. Five-hundred tickets will be sold to benefit Youthlinks, a community service program for Mid-coast youth. The winning ticket will be drawn July 15, and the vacation must be taken Sept. 13-16.

There’s plenty of  small print you should read before entering, but this is one heckuva deal featuring some of Mid-Coast Maine’s premier properties and activities. And September is usually the nicest month of the year.

The Maine Dream Vacation includes:

• round-trip airfare for two to Boston, connecting to a Cape Air flight to Rockland

• Dinner on Thursday, Sept. 15,  at Natalie’s, in your host hotel, the Camden Harbor Inn.

In addition, it includes one of the following services- for-two daily (and good luck choosing, all are quite enticing):

• spa services at Beauty Mark Spa, Camden

• biplane tour over Penobscot Bay, courtesy of the Owls Head Transportation Museum

•  a round of golf at the oceanfront Samoset Resort, Rockport

And finally,

• Large Red Claw tote from Sea Bags, made from recycled sails

That’s a lot of value and a lot of the best of Maine for a $50 chance. Why not purchase a ticket, at the very least, you’re helping a worthy cause, and you might just buy the winning number.
