Congratulations! =D Each of you have just won a pair of tickets to the 17th Annual Gourmet Food & Wine Expo! Your tickets are only valid for the Sunday, November 20th entry to the show (please note that sample tickets are not included with your entry tickets). DM me with your first and last name and I will then give you the details on where to pick up your tickets.
Congrats again and I hope you and your +1 will enjoy the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo!
I also want to say a big THANKS to the 135 contestants who participated in the contest. What an amazing turnout!
To ensure my followers that I am 100% honest when I say the winner is picked RANDOMLY, I will always show you guys how I went about tracking each contest.
Here's a snapshot of the Excel spreadsheet where I tracked the #FWExpo stream from day one of the contest. The tracking was done using chronological order, as in, #1 was the first ballot entered right after the contest went live. An entry ballot was given for each contestant that tweeted "I want to win a pair of tickets to the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo! http://bit.ly/qGHTgH #FWExpo". I then checked to see whether or not each contestant follow me on Twitter (see contest rules here).
I used the "True Random Number Generator" from random.org to pick four winners for me.
Next giveaway is on Saturday, October 29th. Stay tuned! =D
