The Story Behind the Raffle…

The Story Behind the Raffle…

By now, many of you have heard that ArtVan is raffling off an amazing prize, all thanks to Back Country Excursions. The prize is a 1.5 mountain biking trip for two people, including mountain biking instruction, bike rentals, two meals, and use of a wood fired hot tub! For more information, click here.

While the prize is incredible in itself, the story behind the raffle illustrates what ArtVan is all about, and is a testament to the impact that ArtVan has on its participants of all ages. Cliff Krolick, founder of Back Country Excursions, donated the mountain biking trip to ArtVan as a thank you. Cliff’s mother participated in one of ArtVan’s Alzheimers/dementia programs. Cliff noticed the positive impact that ArtVan had on his mother. After her passing, he donated this trip to thank ArtVan.

The proceeds from this raffle will go to buying a new (and much needed) van. This will ensure that ArtVan can keep the arts rolling, and continue making stories like Cliff and his mother’s. If you’re interested in purchasing tickets, please email
