Last year’s Masters Tournament Raffle winner says, “It’s an experience you can’t describe.”

golf-1574443_640From the moment Mary Anne and Dick Krejci arrived in Augusta, GA on Friday, April 8th, the VIP experience began. After being greeted by hospitality professionals and complimentary valet parking service, they were immediately welcomed into a well-planned weekend of elegant parties and world-class service for one of America’s most prestigious sporting events.

Following a bright and early breakfast on Saturday morning, the Krejcis were driven to the Lodge on Heath, a private venue located just 150 yards from Gate 9 of Augusta National. Throughout the day, they had come-and-go access to the course and enjoyed gourmet food and drinks at “buffets like you’ve never seen” complete with smoked salmon, caviar and a variety of freshly-prepared entrees.

For Mary Anne and Dick, the most memorable part of winning last year’s Crown Point VIP Master’s Tournament raffle, was “just being on the grounds of The Masters.” “You can’t describe the beauty and meticulous attention to detail,” said Mary Anne, referring to both the Augusta National course and the superior service provided by staff and volunteers.

In fact, the couple enjoyed it so much, that they’ve already purchased raffle tickets for a chance to go again. “And you should too!” quipped Mary Anne during a recent conversation. “Crown Point is such a wonderful place, and I’m happy to continue supporting them in any way that I can.”

Have you bought your tickets yet for the 2017 Masters Tournament Raffle? If not, they can  be purchased online here until August 19th, 2016. Only 200 tickets will be sold, and the winner to be announced at the Taste of Earth gala on August 20th. Need not be present to win.
