I just got an email today about this wonderful contest that Applebee's just launched this week.
Here is what it said:
To recognize the men and women who have played instrumental roles in our lives, Applebee’s just launched the Applebee’s Realburgers for Real Heroes contest and sweepstakes. A real hero might be a soldier, parent, coach, volunteer, teacher, or best friend – people who are making a difference in your life and at the base every day. Who are your heroes?
You can go online (www.applebees.com/realheroes) to nominate your real heroes (the last day to nominate is July 5). So what’s the prize?? In addition to some much-deserved recognition, the Grand Prize Winner will receive $5,000 and a year’s worth of free Applebee’s Realburgers Just for nominating, you're automatically entered into a weekly sweepstakes drawing for a $50 Applebee's Gift Card. Don’t forget to come back to the website to meet the Real Heroes and vote for your favorite between July 15 and July 23, 2009.
I'm going to go online and I'm nominating my husband Curt, you all know that he is a soldier in the Air Force and to me and the kids, he is our hero. No questions asked and no doubt about it.
But I think that you all most likely, or actually surely, have a hero of your own and I also think that it's a great opportunity to bring them some recognition don't you think?
Applebee's has been kind enough to offer a little giveaway to my readers. So here is what is up for grabs:
Just something fun!
If you're interested, all you have to do is leave me a comment and I'm only running this contest until tomorrow at midnight. I will draw a winner on Saturday!
The contest is open to the US only. Good luck and don't forget to leave me an email so that I can contact you. I want to be able to get your information as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made for your prize BEFORE I leave on vacation next week.
