Excerpt: One lucky buyer of a $100 raffle ticket to raise funds for the Des Moines Public Library will win a trip for two to Washington, D.C.
Parts of the trip have been coordinated by longtime library advocate and former Iowa first lady Christie Vilsack, who moved to Washington when her husband Tom became the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. So the itinerary includes several "insider" bonuses, including a private tour of the White House's West Wing and the State Department's rarely toured diplomatic reception rooms. The prize also includes airfare, two nights at the Marriott Hotel, tickets to the Newseum and tours of the Capitol and Library of Congress.
