Ben Bridge Jeweler is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a $100,000 “Wedding of the Century Sweepstakes,” which offers engaged couples a chance to win a dream wedding package complete with jewelry and a honeymoon to South Africa. Contestants enter and “like” the Ben Bridge’s Facebook page, fill out the contest entry form, upload a photo and then spread the word with friends to encourage voting. The event closes on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2012.
Fifth generation family member, Lisa Bridge said, ”For five generations, Ben Bridge has helped couples celebrate engagements, weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. Being ‘your personal jeweler’ for 100 years made creating the Ben Bridge $100,000 Wedding of the Century the perfect way to celebrate our customers’ lives – and our anniversary.”
Those couples who enter and have encouraged the most voting will help their chances of winning, according to the rules. Even those who are not planning to get married may be eligible to win one of 3,000 $25 Ben Bridge gift cards. When the sweepstakes closes at 9 p.m. PDT on Valentine’s Day one couple will win the grand prize package, which includes $30,000 in bridal jewelry, plus a cash prize as well as an exotic honeymoon trip to South Africa sponsored by Forevermark.
