Here’s a great opportunity for anyone who is getting married, planning to get married, thinking about planning to get married or just thinks marriage is a possibility sometime in the reasonably near future. Union Station Kansas City, in honor of the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, presents a Royal Wedding Giveaway.
First, the prize:
• Wedding reception for 250 people in Sprint Festival Plaza at the station, including tables, chairs, linens, food and non-alcoholic beverages
• $500 gift certificate for purchase of a wedding dress
• One hotel room for two consecutive nights at the Kansas City Downtown Marriott hotel
This is a $25,000 value. So, if you are traditional, it could save the father and mother of the bride a bundle. And who would not want to have a wedding reception in the magnificent Sprint Festival Plaza at Union Station?
How to enter? The simplest way is to go to mix93.com and sign up.
To enter by mail, send your name, address (including hometown) telephone numbers (daytime and evening), email address and birth date, along with an original essay and a self-addressed, stamped envelope, to Wilkes Broadcasting, Royal Wedding Giveaway, 508 Westport Rd., Kansas City, MO 64111. Your entry must be postmarked by May 12, 2011 and received by May 17, 2011.
Now about that essay: It has to be original. And it has to answer the question: Why do you deserve a Royal Wedding?
If you attended the Union Station Royal Wedding Watch Party — and a lot of people did, some 3,500 at last estimate — you probably already know about this contest. You might also have visited Diana, A Celebration, the exhibition that chronicles the life and work of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, who was also Prince William’s mother.
If you visited the exhibition, be sure to tell your family and friends about it. The reviews have been nothing short of spectacular. No one should miss it.
