Sundance Vacations partnered with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, Allegiant Air, and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport to make one lucky fan’s dream of attending spring training come true!
After receiving thousands of entries from our website and our partners, 10 lucky fans were invited to the Gildan Triple A National Championship Game at PNC Field on September 19th! During the second inning, the Ultimate Finalists, along with Executive Director of Wilkes-Barre Scranton International Airport, Carl R. Beardsley Jr., Lackawanna County Commissioner, Laureen A. Cummings and Sundance Vacations Digital Media and SEO Coordinator, Robert Orloski took the field to draw the lucky fan from a hat!
After much anticipation, a name was pulled from the hat, and with a leap in the air, Eric G. from Fanwood, NJ was ecstatic to hear his name called! Having driven from New Jersey to Scranton, being chosen made the trip worth it even more!
