Marquette, Michigan – October 10, 2014 – Congratulations, Susan Hickman of Ishpeming! Susan won the $12,500 Bathroom Makeover at the Great Lakes Radio giveaway party last night at the Red Rock Lanes & Banquet Center in Ishpeming!
Guests started lining up at 5 pm to get into the party last night and at one point the line to get in stretched all the way across the Red Rock Lanes parking lot! Our registration team did a great job and got people through the doors pretty quickly. We randomly choose 350 people from the thousands of entries received from our online contest page and from all of our sponsor locations.
Walt Lindala welcomed everyone to our giveaway party and got the party started by giving away some door prizes. The Marquette Royales delivered prizes to our guests, including some great Marquette Royales t-shirts and tickets to Royales games! Throughout the party, we kept giving away door prizes like movie tickets from the Thomas Theatre in Marquette, Budweiser Swag from Griffin Beverage Company, mugs and bags BioLife Plasma Services, a great hoody and cap from Hudson’s Classic Grill & Bar, and more!
We played a toilet paper toss game, complete with flushing sound effects whenever anyone tossed their toilet paper roll into the toilet. The guys had it easy, though… they got to toss with the lid up! Anyone who made a “basket” with their toilet paper roll won a free game of bowling from Clay at the Red Rock Lanes & Banquet Center! Clay even gave away some free pizzas to some of the lucky toilet paper toss winners!
At Great Lakes Radio, we like to help our loyal listeners win prizes and we love our big quarterly giveaways. Over the years we’ve given away everything but the kitchen sink. We may not give away the kitchen sink, but we did give away two toilets last night courtesy of Trudell Plumbing & Heating! Kaitlin Rich of Ishpeming and Kris Brown of Texas were the lucky toilet winners.
Before we announced our last finalist, Major Discount invited Laura Chapman from Holiday Travels to the mic to announce our next giveaway: Two Tickets to Paradise – a 5-night inclusive stay for two at Riu Palace Mexico (including park and stay). Laura also announced a special deal just for those in attendance at the party last night -$100 off a vacation to Mexico, the Caribbean or Hawaii. What a great deal! You’ll want to book early, so use those cards you got at the giveaway party and give Laura a call right away.
We took a bunch of pictures at the giveaway party and you can take a look through our gallery here and see if you can spot yourself or some of your friends!
