Historic Souvenirs Could Earn One Lucky Winner a Vacation
Westward Look Resort collecting mementos of past visits
Tucson, AZ (1/02/12) – To mark its 100 year anniversary, Westward Look Resort is holding a “Call for Treasures” contest. Former guests of Westward Look are asked to submit photos and souvenirs from their stays at the resort, from which a selection of entries will be published in the upcoming book, History of Westward Look: 100 Years in the Making. The winning photo or souvenir, selected from all entries, will earn the entrant a two-night stay including breakfast at Westward Look.
The nationwide contest is open to all U.S. residents over the age of 18 who would like to help the resort collect artifacts and preserve memories from the past 100 years.
Contest participants earn the chance to win:
- A two-night stay including breakfast each morning (first place prize)
- An overnight stay (second place prize)
- Dinner at GOLD totaling up to $100 (not including alcohol; third place prize)
Former guests of Westward Look can mail souvenirs such as postcards, menus, towels, logo clothing, bath products, posters, brochures and more to the resort for consideration. (Guests who would like their items returned must include a selfaddressed, stamped envelope.) Contest participants can also submit photos of these items or photos of their stay by emailing the resort at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many entries will be selected for publication in the coffee table book documenting Westward Look’s 100 years in the making, but only three submissions will win the top prizes.
Westward Look Resort began as a hacienda-style family home built in 1912, less than six months after Arizona became a state. By the 1940s, the home had become a thriving dude ranch, and by the late 1960s, it was on its way becoming the distinctive 244-room resort it is today. Following a $14 million dollar renovation in 2009, Westward Look now offers a fusion of tradition and innovation, history and luxury. The 80-acre resort serves as a desert oasis for business and recreational travelers, offering a spa, eight tennis courts, desert hiking trails, two on-site restaurants and 20,000 square feet of meeting space. During their stay, guests are encouraged to explore the unique qualities of the resort’s Sonoran Desert setting. As Westward Look has evolved over the decades, it has remained true to its authentic Southwestern charm and committed to preserving its pristine impressive desert surroundings.
