2018 Contest Winner
Carlos, of Miami, Florida, and his family are the best of friends with two other families and have been for almost 20 years.
Hard-working and devoted to their families, the three couples have “been through it all together… from births to deaths and everything in between.” While they have enjoyed taking family trips together, they’re ready for a “no kids” getaway: “Now that we've survived the sleepless nights, sick kids, and traveling with them, we could use our break!"
Carlos and his friends are excited at the prospect of their first ever “couples only” get-together. As a bonus, the group will all reunite for the first time since one family moved from Miami to Georgia. Clarion is thrilled to make their dreams come true with a few days of carefree fun without the kids.
The winner will receive:
- A 3-night stay for up to 6 people at the new Clarion® Inn & Suites Atlanta Downtown hotel, October 18 – 21, 2018
- VIP tickets to the Taste of Atlanta, the city’s hottest food and wine festival
- Exclusive experiences by Coca-Cola®, including tours of World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium
- Dinner at the hotel’s Paschal’s Restaurant, a historic venue featuring soulful Southern food.
- Round-trip airfare
Contest ends July 31, 2018
