BERKELEY - The California Women's Gymnastics program is raffling off a seven-day, six-night cruise through the Mediterranean aboard a Norwegian cruise ship. Tickets cost $20 for one ticket, $50 for three tickets and $100 for seven tickets, and the deadline to enter is April 27.
The cruise package includes a balcony stateroom for two aboard the Norwegian Epic, voted the "Best Overall Ship" by Travel Weekly readers for two years running. The Epic sails from Barcelona, Spain to Naples, Rome and Florence in Italy, Provence, France and Palma de Mallorca in Spain before arriving back in Barcelona after a full week. Norwegian will provide the recipient with a list of specific sail dates to choose from through March 2014.
NOTE: Please make checks payable to UC Regents.
The drawing will be held Saturday, April 27 at the program's annual Wine Social for Alumni, Family and Friends in Napa, Calif. Once a raffle ticket is purchased, the individual does not need to be present to win.
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the California Women's Gymnastics team. The Golden Bears are in their first year with head coach Justin Howellat the helm. Howell has guided the squad to their first rankings since 2008, and the team has held on to a Top 25 ranking for four straight weeks. Cal opened the season with a 195.425, besting the team's top score of last season (194.725), and the team has continued to improve.
