Ishpeming, Michigan  –  December 18, 2014  –  Congratulations to Phil Boyette, the Grand Prize Winner of Great Lakes Radio’s Two Tickets to Paradise contest! Phill Boyette won an amazing Funjet Vacation for a 5-night all-inclusive stay at the beautiful Riu Palace Mexico from Holiday Travel Vacations.

Every quarter we host a new giveaway party with a great grand prize, but it seems like out Two Tickets to Paradise contest is the one that everyone wants to win most (I can’t say I blame you. Who wouldn’t want to take a nice, warm vacation with 24-hour room service?)

We started decorating at Red Rock Lanes & Banquet Center early this afternoon with tropical decorations to get everyone into vacation mode.

As always, the registration line was long, but Amy and DeeDee did a great job getting everyone through the doors and

registered. Elmer Aho greeted guests and chatted with his many fans as they entered the party. Everyone was so happy to see Elmer back again.

Walt Lindala kicked off our party with a warm welcome and gave out some door prizes. Great Lakes Wine & Spirits supplied us with a bunch of really cool t-shirts, hats and keychains for door prizes so our prize table was overflowing with great gifts for our guests!

Mama Russo’s catered the event again and served us a wonderful meal of their famous lasagna, tasty cudighi bites and homemade salads. That taffy apple salad is my favorite! What’s your favorite food from Mama Russo’s?

After everyone finished eating, Luke and Dennis took the mic over to

run everyone’s favorite game – BINGO! When we had eight winners, we asked them to come to the front of the room to choose one of the eight finalist gifts. Laura from Holiday Travel Vacations came to the mic to talk about the Grand Prize and to tell everyone how easy and affordable it is to book a vacation like the one we were about to give away.

Then the moment everyone was waiting for  – Laura asked the finalists to open their gifts and see who won the Grand Prize! Everyone ripped the tops off their boxes and Phil Boyette jumped up and down with his/her gift box. Congratulations, Phil Boyette! We look forward to hearing all about your trip when you come back!
