How can a seven day vacation at the fabulous Royal Aloha Vacation Club at Waikiki Beach in Hawaii plus $2,000 in cash support the local Mesquite Arts Community, you ask?

As part of its annual fundraising Hearts for the Arts Gala, the Greater Mesquite Arts Foundation is selling only 100 tickets at $75 a piece for a chance to win the accommodations in a one bedroom condo that sleeps four and has a kitchen and living room. Check in date is July 13, 2015 with check out on July 20, 2015. While airfare and transportation are not included in the condo accommodations, the $2,000 the lucky winner will receive as part of the prize package will help offset those costs.

The winning ticket will be drawn on Wednesday, Feb. 11, at the Hearts for the Arts Gala that will be held at the Eureka Casino Town Square, 275 Mesa Blvd. The winner does not need to be present to win.

You can purchase your $75 ticket at Danielle’s Chocolates, 1155 Pioneer Blvd, Suite 102, by cash, check or credit card or from any GMAF Board member with cash or check only. Tickets are also available at the Mesquite Community Theatre Box office, 150 N. Yucca Street, on Thursdays and Fridays from 5 to 7 p.m. by cash, check or credit card.

For more information or to purchase tickets contact GMAF Board Chairman Maggie Calhoun at 360-904-1090 or email

One hundred percent of the money raised through the raffle benefits the arts in Mesquite and helps provide a wide range of art programs and events to enrich the community. GMAF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the Mesquite Arts Council, Mesquite Toes Tap Team, Virgin Valley Artists Association, Virgin Valley Theatre Group, and the Ms. Senior Mesquite Pageant.
