It pays to be nice. In fact, it can make you a winner. Because Marsha Floyd of Birmingham, Ala., “liked” Alys Beach, she was entered into a sweepstakes contest to experience Digital Graffiti 2014 — the world’s first outdoor projection art festival — held in Alys Beach on Scenic Highway 30A in Northwest Florida’s South Walton county.
In a random drawing by 30A.com on April 23, Floyd was selected as the official Grand Prize winner from 21,000 entries.
Floyd and her five guests will enjoy a luxury vacation stay in one of Alys Beach’s beautiful homes from June 1 to June 8 and receive six all-access weekend passes to attend all three days of Digital Graffiti 2014 — a grand prize package valued at $7,800.
“I’m so excited ... I can’t believe I really did win this trip!” Floyd said. “We have looked at pictures of Alys Beach through the years, but have never been there. Really, it has been five years since we have been to the beach or had a seven-day vacation. That’s one reason I registered for the trip on Facebook, I am personally long overdue for a real vacation as well as my family. What a dream to go to Alys Beach for seven days free and get to experience the Digital Graffiti weekend!”
Alys Beach is a winner, too. Its marketing team partnered with 30A.com and in just four weeks nearly 2.4 million unique Facebook users saw the promotion. As many as 21,000 entered the contest and 9,400 of them shared invitations to friends making it one of Alys Beach’s most successful online sweepstakes yet.
“The huge response proves what we locals have known for some time, that the combination of exciting events like Digital Graffiti held at an amazing town like Alys Beach located on lovely 30A makes for an incredibly desirable vacation experience,” said 30A.com’s Mike Ragsdale.
