Bring Your Family Back to Manitoba This Thanksgiving

Turkey on food-laden table

Manitoba Homecoming 2010 is holding a contest for one lucky Manitoban to bring their family back home for Thanksgiving.

“Coming home is what Manitoba Homecoming is all about,” said Kevin Walters, Executive Director, Manitoba Homecoming 2010. “Thanksgiving is the perfect time to gather family and friends and we want to make it easier for a lucky Manitoba family.”

The winner will receive airfare to fly two family members home to Manitoba from anywhere in Canada for Thanksgiving dinner. The winning family will also receive an in-home, gourmet Thanksgiving dinner catered for up to 18 people with turkey and all the trimmings prepared by Granny’s resident Chef Jason Wortzman.

“In addition, nine lucky winners will each win a pair of tickets to Winnipeg’s own Crash Test Dummies Homecoming concert on October 9th at the Burton Cumming Theatre,” said Walters. Concert tickets will be given away over the summer by participating radio stations.

People can enter by visiting and submitting a short story describing why this would be a special time to bring loved ones home or share the best/worst Thanksgiving experience.

The deadline to enter is August 31, 2010.
