What did you win?

What contests or drawings have you won over the years, whether it be here on CM, or the radio or a store drawing...anything.

I won a free drawing for a family portrait session yesterday. I still have to pay for the pictures I order, but still nice.

In the past: Back in the 80's, won tickets to a Rod Stewart concert, won 3rd place in this other contest this radio station had (plus in addition, I won a free pizza/2-liter coke in an additional drawing they had, LOL), won tickets to see the WWE (they were known as the WWF back then), but I didn't go because I got sick w/ a stomach virus (gave tickets to my then SIL and step-niece). Also won a drawing for a big portrait (10x13 I think) back in the 90's, but I never claimed it.

I won a silly little contest at work last year. Voted "Least changed since high school" (my looks), LOL.

  • I also won a cruise to the Bahamas a couple years ago, through our local radio station! I've won lots of other stuff from the radio, but that was the biggest in Florida. I won a video camera here on CafeMom several months ago and other littler thing here. Back in the 80's I won a set of snow skis & $1,000 both from local radio stations in Michigan!

  • I won an essay contest from Rosie O Donnell when she was on the Broadway play fiddler on the roof about 4 years ago. Flew to NYC, stayed in times square, and when our luggage was lost she sent over money and gift cards. best trip everrrrrrrrr

  • A few years ago I won a free cruise to Mexico then a few months later won a video camera. I think I have won my fair share of fewer things but the cruise was the first big thing I have ever won.

  • I've won a few other minor things too here and there, but nothing really major, unless you count Rod Stewart tickets.

  • hbbingmom: That sounds awesome and that was very nice of her to do! :)

    dragonlady44: Nice! I'd love a cruise!

    anonymous: Party Pooper! It's a good, legit studio. I take my son for his portraits there regularly (he's had 8 done there, plus we had a family portrait done last year). Any other place, yeah, I'd be skeptical (like I was with that 11x13 I won), but not them.

  • If you still had to pay for the pictures, I bet they told everyone they won.
