The nine days between now and 31 March constitute the final stretch in the fundraising effort to keep Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park open.
The Bidwell Mansion Community Project’s last big push is the Run for Bidwell Mansion, taking place on Saturday the 31st.
All of the money raised in the run/walk goes toward the $100,000 goal. Register now by clicking on the link below.
If you’re looking for a personal incentive beyond the worthy goal itself of keeping Chico’s most important landmark open, here’s a nice one.
The Prescott Hotel in San Francisco and HotelsForBiz (my hotel reservation service for business travelers) are donating a 2-night hotel stay + hotel spending money prize, for which Run for Bidwell Mansion registrants will be eligible.
To be entered in the drawing, runners will need to stop by Fleet Feet Sports in downtown Chico. Details will be announced next week by the store, but in order to be in the drawing, you first have to be registered for the Run for the Mansion.
Speaking of Fleet Feet Chico they are contributing $1 per Facebook “check-in” to the save the mansion effort by those who “like” the store. See http://www.facebook.com/FleetFeetChico for details and to check in to save the mansion.
More details here about the hotel stay prize drawing next week.
