I originally posted this on the Quicken Loans Zing blog and I wanted to share it here also. Here you go:
On a boat.
A big boat.
Watching some ball.
Some really good ball.
Watching in person, with tickets that cannot be bought (you must be a VIP guest), the 2011 Quicken Loans Carrier Classic. The Quicken Loans Carrier Classic will be held on the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier and it’s sure to be an event of truly epic proportions.
We held two contests to give away tickets – one on Facebook and one on Twitter. Here are the results.
Quicken Loans Carrier Classic Facebook Contest Winners
This was the big contest. On the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic Facebook page. Up to four free tickets. Free airfare. Free hotel. Throw in a gift card for expenses.
The winner is….
In her own words:
“I am bringing my son Jacob Hebert. I think it will be an experience both he and I will enjoy and be able to reminiscence about years down the road.
Visiting and exploring San Diego, no one in our family has ever been there and we hear that it is absolutely beautiful, a place all its own. My son is a fan of both teams so I’ll probably root for whoever he isn’t rooting for just so they will have some support too. Our family is totally appreciative for the sacrifices they and their families made, they are always in our thoughts and prayers. My son is a huge basketball fan and we can’t wait to take this trip together.
Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity.
Jenny & Jacob Hebert”
Congratulations to Jenny and Jacob. Have a great trip!
Quicken Loans Carrier Classic Twitter Contest Winners
The big daddy contest was on Facebook. But we didn’t want to completely keep our Quicken Loans Twitter friends out of the loop, so we had a mini-contest on Twitter as well. It was simple. Two tickets to the event. Tell us why you should win them. Bam.
The winner is…..
And she’s bringing her husband Jeremy, a proud member of the US Air Force. Here are some words from her:
“ My husband and I are using it as an opportunity to cheer on our favorite team and alma mater, The Michigan State Spartans (we are huge fans!), on such an important day to our country. My husband is active duty Air Force and is deploying for a year in January. It will be an excellent mini-vacation for us to see our team play this year and spend time together before he leaves. Having it on Veterans Day to celebrate those who serve/have served, as well as the setting will be incredibly special.
I would like to thank all veterans for their selfless service to this great country, but a special shout out to the military and veteran spouses. You are stronger than you know and heroes too!
Thank you for giving us this opportunity! GO AIR FORCE! GO GREEN!”
Danielle also sent us this extra info to share:
Danielle is originally from Holland, Michigan and attended Michigan State University for her undergraduate and Master’s degrees. Danielle currently works as an Area Coordinator for Housing & Residential Programs at Angelo State University. A social worker by trade, Danielle would like to continue to work in higher education to ease the transition for veterans from combat to college.
Jeremy claims Las Vegas, NV and Holland, Michigan as home. He attended MSU after 4 years of prior enlistment with the Air Force, participated in ROTC and entered back into active duty. They currently live in San Angelo, Texas!
And Danielle even shot this very extra special video, which is the reason why she won:
So BIG CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of our Facebook and Twitter Quicken Loans Carrier Classic contests.
Enjoy the game and have a great time. On us!
