A couple of years ago I wrote a family reunion article about our reunion traditions and won monogrammed Lands’ End polo shirts for our extended family. It was so fun to be able to provide shirts for our entire family and it didn’t cost us a cent! Because of my positive experience with Lands End I’m always on the lookout for other contests that support family reunions. House-Autry has a great “Southern Fried Reunion Contest” going on right now!
Southern Fried Reunion Contest
House-Autry Mills and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) are celebrating family and tradition in advance of the 2011 CIAA Tournament in Charlotte, N.C. The “Southern Fried Reunion Contest” will award one grand prize winner a family reunion for up to 200 people, fully-catered by House-Autry, as well as a pair of tickets to the 2012 CIAA Tournament.
Plan to enter soon because this contest ends February 25th, 2011. To enter the contest, visit www.House-Autry.com/Contest and submit your name and contact information to be included in the random drawing. Get an email out to everyone in your family and have them enter too! (One entry per valid email address.) The winning family’s guest list can be a group of relatives, a sorority or fraternity, a church group or any other kind of close-knit group. House-Autry will coordinate with the winner to schedule and help plan the reunion this spring or summer.
