NCRF Angels get two chances to win a getaway

Angels are the heart of the National Court Reporters Foundation. With the support of these donors of $1,000 and higher, NCRF provides education, scholarships, and special training to help preserve the past, promote the profession, and advance court reporting and captioning into the future.

Donors who have contributed $1,000 – $4,999 to the Foundation in the past 12 months by Sept. 3 will be entered to win a trip to Mexico or Lake Tahoe! The drawing will take place live on Sept. 4 on NCRA’s Facebook page.

Thanks to the generosity of NCRA member Denise Paternoster, RPR, Staten Island, N.Y., the winner of the weeklong Mexico getaway will select a trip from among these three luxurious spa resorts:

  • Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Cabo San Lucas
  • Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta
  • Villa del Palmar Flamingos Beach Resort & Spa Riviera Nayarit in Nuevo Vallarta

Thanks to the generosity of NCRA member Sandy VanderPol, FAPR, RMR, CRR, Lotus, Calif., one of the winners will get to discover the treasures of Lake Tahoe for a one-week vacation.

(Travel expenses are not included.)
