Wilkes-Barre, Pa (February 23, 2011) – One very lucky resident from New Jersey was randomly selected from over one million national entries to win an Ultimate Giveaway, a luxury vehicle or fifty thousand dollars from Sundance Vacations.

Kandi Mell of Westhampton, New Jersey was selected as the winner of the 2010 Sundance Vacations sweepstakes promotion. The official drawing was done at the Sundance Vacations Corporate Headquarters in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Numerous members of the marketing staff and several management representatives were present for the drawing on February 2, 2011. This was the seventh year that Sundance Vacations has held the national sweepstakes drawing.

Sundance Vacations called Kandi Mell while she was at home right after the drawing to tell her the big news. Her initial reaction to the news was total disbelief. In fact, Kandi’s first words after being told she won were “Oh shut up!” However, once the initial shock settled she decided on the fifty thousand dollars instead of the luxury vehicle.

An official presentation ceremony was held during a Philadelphia Flyers hockey game on February 22nd. Scott Brunnenmeyer, Director of Operations and Joe Molitoris, Vice President of Marketing, presented Kandi Mell and her husband with a $50,000 check after the first period of the game right off the ice for the entire arena to see. When asked what they will do with the money, Kandi’s husband said, “We’re going to Disney World!”
