Christina Vadnais has always wanted to take a ride in a hot air balloon, but she never had a chance to take flight … until now. Thanks to Taco John’s® and its “Do What You Want” giveaway, the Hermosa woman recently went ballooning over the Black Hills.
Christina and Kevin Vadnais flew in a hot air balloon thanks to Taco John’s Do What You Want contest.“When I signed up, I never thought in all my dreams I would win! It was a beautiful, tranquil Saturday morning over Custer State Park when we took off in the balloon,” says Vadnais. “My husband Kevin and I were fortunate to see a mountain lion on a hilltop, whitetail deer, antelope and buffalo grazing.”
Vadnais is one of 16 people who will win a $500 gift card from Taco John’s between August and Thanksgiving as part of its “Do What You Want” giveaway, sponsored by Taco John’s and presented by Dr. Pepper®. To enter, Vadnais had to say in 50 characters or less what she wanted to do.
“We were looking for a fun way to promote our new Buffalo Crunchy Chicken Burrito and this idea rose to the top,” says Jeff Linville, CEO for Taco John’s®. “This limited time menu item takes our signature burrito to the next level. Enjoying one feels a little indulgent, so we’re offering a chance to satisfy your hunger and a dream.”
“This was an experience of a lifetime and a memory I will never forget,” said Vadnais. “Thank you, Taco John’s, for giving me the opportunity to have one of my dreams come true!”
Taco John’s is selecting a winner every Friday until November 20. Two final winners will be chosen on Monday, November 23. For official rules and to submit an entry visit www.TacoJohns.com/dwyw
