A five-day trip for four will be awarded to a new or current member of the Toledo Museum of Art

New and current members of the Toledo Museum of Art now have a chance to win a trip for four to Italy’s beautiful Monteverdi Tuscany, a rare boutique hotel, restaurant, and spa in an idyllic medieval hilltop village. The winner of the five-day, four-night trip will experience a luxurious retreat in Villa San Pietro. Tucked between Rome and Florence, Monteverdi is an ideal home base for exploring historic hill towns and vineyards in the region. The raffle is sponsored in part by Ottawa Hills Travel Group and Monteverdi Tuscany.

One winner will receive a voucher from Ottawa Hills Travel Group for a trip for four to Tuscany. The voucher will cover round trip airfare (coach) from Detroit to Rome, Italy, for four; round trip transfer from the airport to Monteverdi; and five days and four nights in the Villa San Pietro, Monteverdi’s two bedroom, two bathroom suite.

New and current members are eligible for the raffle if they qualify for one of the following during the entry period (Dec. 1, 2017-March 2, 2018): become a new member that joins at the President’s Council or Business Council level ($1500); upgrade your current membership to the President’s Council or Business Council level ($1500); or upgrade your current President’s Council, Business Council or Director’s Circle membership by $1500.

“The Museum is pleased to be partnering with Ottawa Hills Travel and Monteverdi Tuscany to offer this exciting raffle,” said Todd Ahrens, Director of Development at TMA. “It will a be once-in-a-lifetime experience for the winner. But the Museum and the Toledo community are the real winners. As a private, independent organization that does not receive a tax levy, the Museum relies on its members, donors and sponsors to stay open free for everyone.”

Michael Cioffi, the founder and owner of Monteverdi Tuscany, is a proud and enthusiastic partner with Ottawa Hills Travel and TMA. He promises a peak travel experience for the winner. “One of the founding principles behind Monteverdi Tuscany was to create a small boutique hotel where the senses would be nourished and arts of all kind would flourish. Monteverdi will have many special complimentary surprises waiting for the winner, from concerts to art exhibits to exclusive wine tours and tastings in an incomparable Tuscan landscape of rolling hills, olive and cypress trees and vineyards. This is the Tuscany of your dreams.”
