Dawn D. of Washoe Valley

Winner Week #18 Trip to Phoenix on Southwest
Dawn D. of Washoe Valley won a trip for two to Phoenix as part of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport's Non-Stop Getaways contest. The problem is, she and her husband have three boys. Which one does she take? Dawn joked that whichever son keeps his room the cleanest gets the nod. All jokes aside, she's already planning a trip to the Grand Canyon for her family and two free tickets on Southwest Airlines, a $600 Hotels.com gift card and a $200 Visa gift card will help make that a reality. And as it's the first time her boys will have traveled anywhere by plane, this trip will be grand (get it?) for all. Congratulations, Dawn! (Dawn is pictured left with her husband and three sons.)

Zoie W. from Lovelock

Winner Week #17 Trip to Chicago on United
Lovelock resident Zoie W. took a trip a few years ago to Chicago with her adult daughter.  "We didn't get to the bottom of our to-do list," she said.

Frankie P. from Fernley

Winner Week #15 Trip to Oakland on Southwest
With a move to a new house, dozens of trips schlepping stuff from one place to another, Frankie P. of Fernley is more than ready for a break. She entered the Non-Stop Getaways contest several weeks in a row, but felt particularly lucky about Oakland. That was some good intuition. This Raiders fan and her fiancée are already making plans for two tickets on Southwest Airlines, a two-night stay at the Bayside Hotel at Embarcadero Cove, Oakland's #1 TripAdvisor hotel, a $200 Visa gift card and more! Put your feet up, Frankie, and enjoy the Bay views. You've earned it. (Frankie is pictured left with her fiancée and employees from the Airport Authority and Southwest Airlines.)

Mandy M. from Reno

Winner Week #14 Trip to Portland on Alaska
Mandy Moore (not THAT one) is looking forward to three things in Portland: her friends, the cool parks, and microbews. And not necessarily in that order. The Reno resident won the Reno-Tahoe International Airport’s Non-Stop Getaways trip to the City of Roses on Alaska Airlines, a $600 gift card to Hotels.com, a $200 Visa gift card and some mad airport swag. Mandy said she’ll take her boyfriend on the trip and because he’s never been there, she gets to play tour guide in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  Have a Voodoo Doughnut for us, Mandy. We’re partial to the Tangfastic ones. And enjoy your Non-Stop Getaway! (Mandy is pictured left with a representative from Alaska Airlines.)

Cheryl H. from Reno

Winner Week #13 Trip to San Jose on Southwest
Some people are busier in retirement than before they left the workforce. That describes Cheryl H. of Reno to a T. This Non-Stop Getaways winner was a licensed pilot, is helping raise some of her grandkids, trains dogs for Canine Companions for Independence, regularly travels to Dallas, and volunteers at Sky Tavern. Everyone gets a little bit of Cheryl’s time and she says could really use a mini vacation from her retirement. She and one of her grandkids will enjoy a short flight to San Jose on Southwest Airlines, a 3-night stay with complimentary shuttle service from San Jose Airport at the Holiday Inn San Jose - Silicon Valley. Throw in a visit to the San Jose Museum of Quilts, and Cheryl will have a fun and relaxing Non-Stop Getaway. (Cheryl is pictured left.)

 

Shreya K. from Gardnerville

Winner Week #12 Trip to Dallas on Southwest
In Sanskrit, Shreya’s first name means, “to bring good luck”. This winner stayed true to her namesake and picked up the W on her first entry into the Reno-Tahoe International Airport’s Non-Stop Getaways contest. Southwest Airlines is whisking this 21-year-old away to Dallas where she can spend time shopping, taking in an amusement park or chilling in eclectic Deep Ellum. This Gardnerville resident goes to school full time at the University of Nevada and works two jobs. She’s never been to Dallas and says a trip with her sister, complete with $600 Hotels.com and $200 Visa gift cards, is just the summer break she needs. (Shreya is pictured left.)

Hellen N. from Genoa

Winner Week #11 Trip to Denver on Southwest
If there’s an adventure brewing, Hellen N. from Genoa wants to be part of it. She’s our energetic winner in the Reno-Tahoe International Airport’s Non-Stop Getaways contest and this woman has plans. Aside from taking a friend (with an infant) on her trip to Denver on Southwest Airlines, the trio is also planning on taking part in Cheyenne, Wyoming’s Frontier Days! Cheyenne is a short drive from Denver, so Hellen will get her cowboy on with the rodeo, country music, carnival midway and so much more. She’s got a $600 Hotels.com gift card, a $200 Visa gift card, and a RNO Airport Ambassador bear, to help make the trip a success. Yee-haw, Hellen! (Hellen is pictured left with local management from Southwest.)

Janet D. from Reno

Winner Week #10 Trip to Orange County on Alaska
Janet D. sat at her kitchen table watching a Facebook video of News Channel 4 announcing the Non-Stop Getaways Winner from Reno-Tahoe International Airport. She performed a tabletop drumroll and to her utter chagrin, her name was called! The Reno resident won a trip for two to Orange County, a 3-night stay at the Hilton Anaheim, a $200 Visa gift card and tickets for two to Knott’s Berry Farm. Janet says she was last at Knott’s 50 years ago and has vivid memorial of a particular gumball machine there. At RNO, we’re happy to provide her a little nostalgia, and non-stop summer fun.  Blow some bubbles for us, Janet! (Janet is pictured left.)

Anthony M. from Sparks

Winner Week #9 Trip to Las Vegas on Southwest
Anthony M. and his wife took their children to Las Vegas last year and visited M&M’s World, the Shark Reef & Aquarium and other family friendly venues. When he entered on Facebook and won the Non-Stop Getaways trip to Sin City through Reno-Tahoe International Airport, he vowed that this would be an adults only trip. With flights on Southwest Airlines, a 3-night stay in a suite at the Golden Nugget on Fremont Street, tickets to the Mob Museum, the High Roller observation wheel and to the Absinthe show at Caesars Palace, Anthony and his bride can have a different kind of fun in southern Nevada. (Anthony is pictured left with his wife.)

Katina M. from Sparks

Winner Week #8 Trip to San Diego on Southwest
Katina M. says she can count on two hands the number of date nights she and her husband have gotten together in the last few years, so this Sparks resident is over the moon that the two of them can get away to San Diego as part of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport’s Non-Stop Getaways contest. From the flight for two on Southwest Airlines, a 3-night stay at the brand new Pendry San Diego Hotel in the historic Gaslamp Quarter, and Hornblower Cruises & Events, she’s got their summer vacation all planned out. A day at La Jolla Shores, a visit to the U.S.S. Midway or spending some innings with the Padres, we’re thrilled that this mom of two can relax thanks to RNO and Southwest Airlines.(Katina is pictured left with her adorable baby girl.)

Lorna S. from Reno

Winner Week #7 Trip to Seattle on Alaska
When Lorna S. of Reno heard her name announced as a winner of the Non-Stop Getaways trip on Fox 11, she nearly choked. She was eating breakfast at the time and really couldn’t believe they were talking about her. It was serendipitous that Lorna’s trip is to Seattle. She was born there, but hasn’t visited in more than 40 years. Lorna said her daughter, though, knows the town like the back of her hand so she’ll have a built in tour guide. Though the spa at the Cedarbrook Lodge is tempting, Lorna said she’s most looking forward to seeing Underground Seattle and tasting the fresh fish she remembers from her childhood. We’re glad Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Alaska Airlines could be part of bringing her home. (Lorna is pictured left with her husband.)

Mike L. from Reno

Winner Week #6 Trip to San Jose on Alaska
When Mike L. moved to Reno three years ago, he and his family gave up a lot. He left behind his first career, a son in college and season tickets to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s found a new home out west, though, and is excited to visit San Jose for the first time as Reno-Tahoe International Airport’s Week 6 Non-Stop Getaways winner. He and his wife are admitted architecture buffs and the Winchester Mystery House was already on their short list to visit. With two round trip tickets on Alaska Airlines, a three-night stay at the San Jose Hilton, a Visa gift card and more, their trip is coming sooner rather than later. Congratulations, Mike! (Mike is pictured left with his wife and airport and airline staff.)

Tricia A. from the North Valleys

Winner Week #5 Trip to New York City on JetBlue
Our big winner on the Non-Stop Getaways trip to New York City is living a full life for someone who’s still in her 20s. Tricia A. of the North Valleys is an Army combat veteran, graduate student at the University of Nevada, reading interventionist at a local elementary school, and is also teaching her dog, Lace, to perform as a service dog. This busy woman deserves a trip to the city that never sleeps. She’s looking forward to seeing the 9-11 Memorial and training Lace in a busier environment than northern Nevada. Good thing her flight on JetBlue is dog friendly. (Tricia is pictured left with her boyfriend, her dog Lace and airport staff.)

Zoreida G. of Reno

Winner Week #4 Trip to Guadalajara on Volaris
Zoreida G. says she’s never been to Guadalajara and still can’t believe she won, but after a friendly family rivalry, she decided she’ll take her teenaged son with her on her trip to Mexico on Volaris. “My family has traveled to Mexico a lot over the years, but I didn’t know there was a non-stop flight out of Reno until now,” she said. Zoreida wants to schedule her trip around some of the festivals in the city and for someone who says she never wins anything, we wish her well on her big win from Reno-Tahoe International Airport. (Zoreida is pictured left with a staff member from Volaris.)

Kim H. of Reno

Winner of Week #3 trip to Boise on Alaska
Nestled near the base of the Owyhee Mountains, Boise truly is an outdoor paradise. Rivers, plains, hiking, biking, and a notorious University of Nevada athletic rival, there are dozens of ways to spend a Non-Stop Getaway there. Kim H. of Reno won the Getaway from Reno-Tahoe International Airport. She and her husband recently retired and have spent long hours renovating their home. Kim’s ready to put down the hammer and nails, and enjoy two round trip tickets on Alaska Airlines, a 3-night stay at the luxurious Inn at 500 Capitol,  and some sweet airport swag. It will be the couple’s first trip together post-retirement, but with 23 non-stop destinations from RNO, it definitely won’t be their last. (Kim is pictured left with her husband.)

Lisa L. of Reno

Winner of Week #2 trip to Las Vegas on Allegiant
Lisa L. won our trip to Las Vegas on Allegiant and bless her heart, the first thing she thought about was who she could give it to. You see, Lisa works at a local non-profit and her giving nature kicked by instinct. Her family, though, reminded her that between working, being a mom and being a graduate student at the University of Nevada, Reno, she could probably use some fun and relaxation herself. Lisa is looking forward to the flight on Allegiant Air, the 2-night stay at the West Gate Las Vegas, and a ton of adventure swag donated by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. Like her daily schedule isn’t adventure enough. (Lisa is pictured left in the gray scarf with her family and airline and airport staff.)

Lauri R. of Reno

Winner of Week #1 trip to Long Beach on JetBlue
Lauri R. of Reno was so excited to win the Reno-Tahoe International Airport’s Non-Stop Getaways trip to Long Beach. It was a long, long winter and Lauri admitted she was in serious need of some sunshine and vitamin D. She’ll find that on the California coast. With tickets for two on JetBlue, a 4-night stay at the Long Beach Marriott, free breakfast buffet, a Visa gift card and more, we know she’ll likely come home with a little tan, a big smile, and a whole lot of relaxation. (Lauri is pictured left in the black sweater with her daughter and airline and airport staff.)
