Our Facebook Traditions Sweepstakes was a big hit during the week leading up to Thanksgiving. Sunriver Resort fans were encouraged to share their own favorite holiday tradition via submission form on Sunriver Resort’s Facebook page, and the winning family was rewarded with a magical three night Traditions vacation getaway to Sunriver Resort early this month.
Our Facebook Traditions Sweepstakes was a big hit during the week leading up to Thanksgiving. Sunriver Resort fans were encouraged to share their own favorite holiday tradition via submission form on Sunriver Resort’s Facebook page. The many funny, heartfelt, silly, and touching submissions that we received wholeheartedly paid tribute to the true spirit of the holiday season that is present during this special time of year. The Camille and Keith Wade family submitted the following comment which ultimately went on to win the sweepstakes:
Until we moved two years ago, one of our favorite traditions was a horse drawn wagon ride around our small town. We would bundle up and wait in town to hear the jingle bells and clip clop of the huge draft horses. Then we rode through town singing Christmas carols while the horses, Sugar and Spice, trotted happily. We capped it off with cookies and cocoa in the local Ace Hardware.
The Wade family was contacted as our coveted Traditions Sweepstakes winners on Thursday, December 5. Because both of their little girls (ages 3 and 6) were busy with school and were diligently practicing for their roles in The Nutcracker, the family was limited on dates available for travel before the holidays. Their only option was to arrive the very next day! The Sunriver Resort team banded together and quickly coordinated an entire weekend full of festive activities just in time for The Wade Family’s arrival not 24 hours later.
The family arrived at their Caldera Cabin to find a decorated Christmas tree all set up in true holiday spirit, a personalized letter from Santa himself, a hot cocoa filled Hydroflask growler, and customized gifts for each family member under the tree. The refrigerator was fully stocked with lunch fixings for their entire three day stay and all their meals covered as part of their getaway, including a full pre-planned breakfast that was delivered to their house on Sunday. The Wade’s were transported, literally overnight, to the customized Sunriver Resort holiday getaway of their dreams.
The Wade’s three day escape was filled with the many magical activities that make Traditions at Sunriver Resort so memorable. From a sleigh ride in the new fallen snow to breakfast with Santa, ice skating passes to snowshoe rentals, gingerbread cookie decorating to elf tuck-ins, they truly embraced the magic of the season.
Thank you to The Wade Family for sharing your holiday memories with us, and for allowing Sunriver Resort to help create new memories that we hope last forever.
