You see the contests all the time, perhaps on a commercial, an email or in a magazine, and you never think that YOU will actually win. Sure, you dream about the possibility, but don't give it much thought after that. Well, meet Petaluma residents Mike and Debbie! On a whim, Mike entered into a Mountain Dew contest and wouldn't you know it... they won!! The prize was a mega block party themed after ABC's sitcom Modern Family for them and 50 of their closest friends.
The Sunday affair included:
- A full catered backyard BBQ with all the fixings. (Preferred Sonoma Caterers)
- A DJ playing the tunes. (Pure Energy Productions)
- Tricycle racing.
- A rock climbing wall. (Climb On!)
- A Magician. (Heather Magic)
- A Bouncehouse. (Jubilee Jumps)
- And of course me to photograph the entire event.
And if all that wasn't enough, they also won:
- The DVD set of Modern Family.
- A BIG outdoor portable movie screen.
- And a $1,000 AMEX gift card.
Let's just say that Mike and Debbie were very popular on Sunday and all of their friends were happy to share in their good fortune!
