APHA member wins luxury vacation just by renewing membership

One APHA member recently earned big bonuses just for being part of the APHA family. The association teamed up with Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa in Gateway, Colorado, to offer the chance to win a luxury vacation to anyone who joined, renewed or extended their APHA membership between April 1 and October 1, 2017. That lucky APHA member was recently chosen through a random drawing:

Congratulations to Jessica Allen of Houston, Minnesota

Jessica and a guest will have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of attractions, from exploring the outdoors to relaxing by the pool, thanks to the wide range of amenities offered by Gateway Canyons. Included in the APHA membership grand-prize package is a three-night stay for two in a Gateway Canyons Kiva Lodge Deluxe room, dinner for two at Entrada Restaurant, daily breakfast for two, and an Adventure Center activity for two. All in all, Jessica’s win is valued at more than $2,500.

Gateway Canyons has something for everyone: hiking, off-roading, air tours, horseback riding, shooting, mountain biking, fly-fishing, tours of the Colorado wine country, complementary yoga classes and more—all set agains the backdrop of Colorado’s stunning red rock canyons. Condé Nast named Gateway Canyons Resort the No. 1 Best Resort in Colorado, the No. 3 Best Resort in the United States and the No. 12 Best Resort in the world.
