HEADS OR TAILS – SANTA ROSA STYLE

 

Just six months ago, wildfires raged through the Wine Country upending the lives of thousands. Who can forget the images of the devastation inflicted on the Coffey Park neighborhood in Santa Rosa? Calls have gone out to support the affected communities, and The Acalanes Boosters Club is responding. This year’s Heads or Tails hotel property features The Sandman in Santa Rosa with its cool retro vibe, re-imagined in new and innovative ways.

With the convenience of a roadside inn and the character of a vibrant Wine Country hotel, The Sandman invites guests to experience the best of Sonoma County. Within the walls, you can be certain of the following: the art is local, the service is warm, and the amenities are thoughtful.

The Sandman is a place for everyone. Whether you’re a road tripper, a savvy business traveler, or an ardent explorer, we welcome you to Santa Rosa. Our motor lodge, a modern throwback inspired by the Spanish Mission Revival buildings found throughout the state, offers a certain peaceful simplicity—plus a few surprises. $500 gift certificate.

If you don’t play, you can’t win! How to play? For $25, you can participate by purchasing a Dons blue bracelet. We’ll play Heads or Tails just before the live auction. Come on up, and place your hands on your head or your tail to indicate your choice. When the coin is flipped and your call is correct, you stay in the game. Last one standing wins!
