View Full Version : PlanetTrisha Contest - Winners are announced!

05-04-2005, 10:00 PM
Welcome to PlanetTrisha!

In celebration of Trisha Yearwood's arrival back on our radios with her new single "Georgia Rain" (and in appreciation for her bringing Garth with her) PlanetGarth.com is holding a benefit raffle. All proceeds from the raffle will go directly to the Jasper County Humane Society, in Trisha's hometown of Monticello, GA.

One lucky member will receive a promotional radio single for "Georgia Rain" -- and lots of lucky animals will be protected from the Georgia rain! A second lucky member will receive a commemorative program from Garth's performance at the 2005 Country Music Hall of Fame Medallion Ceremony.

Every registered member of PlanetGarth.com (who wants one) will receive one entry into the drawing. To enter simply email your PlanetGarth screen name and your real name (first and last) to PlanetTrisha@aol.com . You will then be assigned a raffle ticket number by return email. In accordance with PlanetGarth rules, one PG screen name per person.

If you would like to increase your chances of winning - and help a good cause - you may make a donation to the Jasper County Humane Association. For every dollar you donate, you will receive an additional raffle number. There is no limit to the amount of your donation.

All donations need to be sent via check or money order (in U.S. Dollars) payable to the Jasper County Humane Society to:
PlanetTrisha Contest
P.O. Box 110004
Nashville, TN 37222

You MUST include your PG screen name and email address. Upon receipt of your donation you will receive your raffle ticket numbers via email.

Contest ends and entries must be received by 7pm Central May 27, 20005. Contest is open to all registered members of PlanetGarth.com around the world who have at least one counted post on the PG forums. Officer Spud will select a randomly generated ticket number and the winner will be posted on the PlanetTrisha forum by midnight May 30th and notified by email.

By entering this contest you agree that if you win you will not duplicate, copy or rip the audio from the prize CD, nor offer it for sale in private or in public. This radio promo is numbered and if found to be in violation of these rules, the winner's name and address will be turned over to MCA Records.

Officer Spud's decision is final, any and all monies collected in association with this contest will be sent directly to the Jasper County Humane Society. PlanetGarth staff members are not elligible to win.

Remember Trisha's CD, Jasper County will be available September 13th!

Very cool idea Joyce :)

I like the fact that it's equal and fair for the global fans that make up this little community. Especially us (well us here in Oz anyway :P) who are a gozillion miles from y'all there in the US.

Wow, what a great idea. I'll be sending in my donation ASAP.

Chances are good so far.... only 35 entries. Everyone who sent an entry that met the rules (registered member of PG with at least one post here on the Planet) should have their raffle number.

If you are sending a donation and it doesn't get here by Friday... don't panic if you don't hear from me with your numbers right away. I'll be out of town Saturday - Wednesday and will get caught up on everything the following weekend.

Cleared the P.O. Box today, thanks to those who have sent in donations! We're up to $126.77 in donations for the Jasper County Humane Association. Everyone who's donation I received was sent their raffle numbers.

It will be a week before I get a chance to go to the P.O. Box again. I AM hoping to "run into" Trisha out in Las Vegas and give her a heads up that we're doing this.

Will give you a full report when I return.

The following donations came in while I was in Vegas:


Our current total is $251.77 ! Awesome! I will send everyone their raffle numbers after I put Laynie to bed tonight.

Someone tell my daughter to go to bed! *sigh* She thinks summer vacation means a 24/7 slumber party. And she's too cute for me to tell her no.

Ok... raffle numbers tomorrow. Umm... make that a little later today.

Enjoy those 24/7 slumber parties, Mommy. A mutual friend of ours reminded me to enjoy life. I'm having chocolate for breakfast in her honor today. Joan

Thanks Joan. I've been eating chocolate non-stop since I got back from Vegas and don't have to worry about fitting into that dress any more! :)

Everyone should have their raffle numbers now.
Still plenty of time to enter! Remember - everyone gets a free entry!
