The National Kidney Foundation of Maryland (NKF-MD) is holding a trip raffle in conjunction with its 2012 Liberty Mutual Invitational golf tournament. One lucky winner has their choice of a paid vacation to Pacific paradise in Kauai, London, Rio de Janeiro or San Francisco.
TRIP 1 - A Trip for Two with Economy-Class Air to Kauai, Hawaii for seven days and six nights at The Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club.
With more waterfalls and beaches per square mile than any of its neighbors, the "Garden Isle" of Kauai offers endless opportunities for adventure and romance. The Marriott Resort fronts Kalapaki Bay and offers a wide variety of recreational activities, such as a superior beach experience, championship golf courses at the adjacent Kauai Lagoons Golf Club, and the most unique oceanfront dining options on Kauai. See Kauai's most famous canyon and river on your guided Waimea Canyon and Wailua River tour!
This luxurious resort combines the warmest island hospitality with the most idyllic destination. Golf at Princeville, dine at Bali Hai and walk on golden sand at Poipu, the playground of royals, and relax in luxury at the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club.
The trip includes round trip economy-class air, seven days/six nights accommodations at the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club, daily complimentary breakfast, all room-related taxes, Waimea Canyon experience and Wailua River tour, and free concierge reservation service.
TRIP 2 - A Trip for Two with Economy-Class Air to London, England for seven days and six nights at the Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill.
Vast, vibrant and truly multicultural, London is one of the world's great cities. Learn about the history and glory of London as you visit the landmarks - Big Ben, the Tower of London, The London Eye, and the Tate Modern. Hyatt Regency London-The Churchill is a luxurious, 5-star hotel ideally situated in the picturesque gardens of Portman Square in London's West End, close to many of the city's main attractions and shopping areas.
Stop by Buckingham Palace, the weekday home of the Queen, and watch the time-honored ceremony of the Changing of the Guard. These elite and skilled soldiers uphold the traditions of the past. And you'll know that the Queen is in the Palace when you see four sentries standing at the door (when she is away two stand at the door).
The trip includes round trip economy-class air, seven days/six nights accommodations at the Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill, all room-related taxes and free concierge reservation service.
TRIP 3 - A Trip for Two with Economy-Class Air to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for seven days and six nights at the JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro.
Rio de Janeiro is a state of mind - an endless celebration of life, exquisitely captured by the Marriott, one of Copacabana's best 5-star luxury hotels. Rio's magic can be enjoyed from this luxury hotel rooftop, with its sweeping views of Sugar Loaf and Corcovado, the most famous Rio de Janeiro landmarks.
Planted between lush, forest-covered mountains and breathtaking beaches, this marvelous city has many charms at her disposal. Rio's disarming traits include its music, which is the meeting ground for some of Brazil's most creative artists and nets an audience as diverse as the city, as well as its rich melting pot of cultures. The world-famous beach at Ipanema showcases the cross-section of different lifestyles in Rio, and offers chic boutiques and eateries. And of course, Carnival is Rio de Janeiro's main annual event, occurring 40 days before Easter. Carnival is not only most celebrated in Rio de Janeiro, but is one of the most interesting and artistic events in the world.
The spectacular landscape is another of Rio's shameless virtues. Verdant mountains and white-sand beaches fronting deep blue sea offer a range of adventure: surfing great breaks off Prainha, hiking through Tijuca's rain forests, sailing across Guanabara Bay or rock climbing up the face of Sugarloaf Mountain.
The trip includes round trip economy-class air, seven days/six nights accommodations at the JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro, daily complimentary breakfast, all room-related taxes and free concierge reservation service.
TRIP 4 - A Trip for Two with Economy-Class Air to San Francisco, CA. for four days and three nights at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco or The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay.

Or, just 23 miles south of the city is The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, which reflects the relaxed beauty and romance of the Pacific in every splendid detail.

San Francisco offers a multitude of delights for everyone who visits the City by the Bay, including Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Nob Hill, Chinatown, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and nearby Sausalito.
