Cozumel Condo Stay: Cozumel’s clear turquoise waters and powdery sands coax travelers from cold winter climates to this 185-square-mile island off the Yucatán Peninsula. Sunshine and sand are a constant feature of Cozumel’s coastal views, and the atmosphere on this charming island is intoxicating. Enjoy staying in this beautiful two-bedroom, two-bath oceanfront condo. Donated by Dr. Todd and Alexandra Beyer.

Maestro for a Night at Holiday Pops: Bring up to nine guests to watch you be the maestro for the night as you conduct Sleigh Ride at Akron Symphony’s Home for the Holidays Concert in December at E.J. Thomas Hall. You’ll receive star treatment during your experience, including valet parking and prime seats to the concert. Once you arrive, you and your guests will be escorted on an exclusive backstage tour. At intermission, you’ll be treated to dessert and beverages in the Green Room. You’ll be prepared for the big event with a private conducting lesson by Maestro Christopher Wilkins and we’ll send you home after the experience with a commemorative Mollard baton, custom made and engraved with your name and the date, and a copy of the Sleigh Ride score signed by the entire Akron Symphony Orchestra. Donated by Akron Symphony Orchestra
