Chicago Area Couple Wins Natural Awakenings Costa Rica Contest




Elizabeth Sobol and her husband, Ronnie, won a week-long stay at the Farm of Life (Finca de Vida) natural healing and wellness center, in Costa Rica, in a national sweepstakes sponsored by the facility and Natural Awakenings. The four-month contest, conducted through local Natural Awakenings magazines and NaturalAwakeningsMag.com, drew nearly 3,500 entries.

The Sobols will enjoy shared accommodations, nightly dinners and the use of the communal kitchen and the farm’s fruits and vegetables to prepare their own breakfasts and lunches. They will also experience health coaching, yoga sessions, two waterfall hikes, a beach excursion, a permaculture farm tour and a tour of Manuel Antonio National Park.

“Our readers enjoy the many contests that we run locally, so we’re so happy that two of them won this fabulous national contest,” says Peggy Malecki, publisher of Natural Awakenings Chicago North and North Shore.
