Ishpeming, MI – December 18, 2015 – A resident of Marquette walked away from the Great Lakes Radio giveaway party at the Red Rock Lanes & Banquet Center as the Grand Prize Winner!
Our winner won the grand prize from Holiday Travel Vacations: an all-inclusive, 5-night stay for two at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya, Mexico, including a Park ‘N Fly hotel room for two in Chicago or Milwaukee for one night, two round trip charter flights from Chicago or Milwaukee to Cancun, and round trip transfers from the airport to the resort!
We had a lot of fun giving away all the great prizes, and it’s always nice to see our loyal listeners enjoying the party while directly connecting with the sponsors that furnished the prizes. December giveaway parties are my favorite. It’s always nice to see so many people out and in a good mood because of the holiday season.
The line for the party was huge, but Dennis and DeeDee ruled the registration table, and they got everyone in the door in record time. Once everyone was sitting down, Walt welcomed everyone and kicked off the party by giving away some door prizes right away!
About 35 minutes after registration, the wonderful smells of Mama Russo’s homemade lasagna and cudighi bites started to waft through the party. Soon DeeDee released the contestants to line up for the feast! One of the best times for us to snap pictures of our guests is after they have some of the yummy cudighi bites and salads from Mama Russo’s. Everyone is smiling when they have Mama Russo’s food in front of them!
After everyone had their fill of lasagna, we gave away some more door prizes, and DeeDee released the tables for the game! We played a bean bag toss game and everyone joked and laughed as they tried to throw their bean bags through the holes in the gift boxes, winning a free game of bowling if they succeeded!
The seven finalists were a hoot, jumping up and and screaming when they realized their ticket number matched the number Walt Lindala called. Everybody stayed until the contestants tore open their finalist envelope to see what they’d won.
This prize vacation to Mexico from Holiday Travel Vacations and Great Lakes Radio was just what she’d hoped for after forgoing a trip to Jamaica to help with her daughter’s wedding — a very happy winner indeed.
