FALL 2014 GRATITUDE TRAVEL WRITING CONTEST, $650 USD to be Won!!

Los Angeles: Uber it! Join Gogobot, LACOT, Dave’s Travel Corner for a travel talk and Raffle Oct 16

G Kamna LG OahuFrom LACOT:  Join us at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel on October 16, at 7:00 PM. Our friends and LACOT members Lisa Niver Rajna and George Rajna are back in Los Angeles from a career break, and eager to share their story. The first 40 guests to show up for this Festival of the Pacific meet up in Los Angeles will receive drink tickets, but don’t come just for the wine!

If you’ve been to one of the LACOT meet-ups before, you know what they’re like. This one will be similar, but also with a strong focus on Lisa and George’s experience. Come connect with LA-area travel bloggers, travel writers, and members of the tourism industry. If you’ve ever daydreamed about quitting your day job to become a world wanderer-slash-travel blogger-slash-book writer, you should meet Lisa and George, because they’ve done just that. Their talk will be moderated and they’ll stick around afterwords for the usual mix-n-mingle (that’s the most fun part).

Festival of the Pacific is a celebration of travel and transformation hosted by PennClubLA, LACOT, Dave’s Travel Corner, We Said Go Travel and partnered with Gogobot.

First 10 people that are registered with www.gogobot.com that attend will get complimentary drinks on Gogobot!

The theme, “Living Without Regret: Travel, Love and Success: Make your Dreams a Reality,” is presented by the founders of We Said Go Travel, Lisa Niver Rajna and George Rajna, who will give an inside look into their long-term exotic international travel across Asia over the last fifteen months. They will share their travel expertise, read an excerpt from their new memoir, “Traveling in Sin,” and provide information about We Said Go Travel’s writing contest.

UBER-LACOT

Every attendee will receive a raffle ticket — for free! –  upon entering our meeting space. The raffle includes a handful of neat travel-related prizes. For example, someone will win a great voucher for Uber, the taxi alternative. Have you heard of Uber? It’s the luxury car for hire service, a nicer ride than most taxis, and someone will win a $150 voucher for Uber use. That’s a lot of rides! People new to Uber will also receive up to $20 on their first use of the service (it’s an app, too) with a special code.

Another item in the raffle will be a night at our wonderful host hotel, the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel. Perfect for a local getaway. We also have tickets to the Skirball Cultural Center, and two vouchers for like a billion museums (well, that’s an exaggeration) for LA Museum Season. This is actually good for free admissions and gift shop discounts at over 25 Los Angeles cultural institutions including LACMA, the Getty Center, Hammer Museum, Pacific Asia Museum, the Paley Center for Media, and many more.

We’re trying to keep a closer eye on the RSVPs this time, so please go to Lisa and George’s special events page on Facebook and RSVP there. Alternatively, you can go to the PennClubLA website and RSVP there.  If you forget, no worries, just show up anyway. While we’d like to know how many people to expect, this is more of a ballpark figure.

Long story short: join us for conversation, drinks and the raffle, at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel on October 16, at 7:00 PM.
