Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan (WRCNM) is raffling a one-of-a-kind paddle board handcrafted by Little Bay Boards in Petoskey featuring a design by local artist Mary Bea McWatters. The design combines “Om” and “Ganesh” symbols to bring together “Original Vibration” with “Remover of Obstacles” to pave the way forward toward a beautiful life. This timeless, hollow-core, eco-friendly board with matching paddle is a ‘floating work of art’ valued at $4,000. The raffle drawing will be held at 4pm, Friday, May 19, at Little Bay Boards Showroom.
