Over the years, many iconic television families have taken their collection of unique personalities on vacation to escape from everyday life. Now Wyndham Vacation Rentals, part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN), is giving 101 real-life families a chance to get away together as well.
Wyndham Vacation Rentals announces the Ultimate Family Reunion Contest/Competition, which offers families the chance to win one of 101 vacations good for travel in one of up to 100 countries. Winners can book at cottages in Ireland, villas in Italy, houseboats in the English channels, park lodges in Holland, beach condos in Florida, mountain escapes in the Rocky Mountains and thousands of other vacation rental options around the globe based on availability.
The Ultimate Family Reunion Contest/Competition commenced on July 11, 2011, by asking families to share one photo that captures the unique character of their family, along with a 100-word synopsis that expresses the theme “most enjoyable family gathering moments.” Wyndham Vacation Rentals will accept submissions for the grand prize through Oct. 14, 2011. Entries will then be narrowed down to 20 finalists who will be selected in late October. From November 1 through December 30, 2011, the public will be asked to vote for their favorite family’s story, and those who place a vote will automatically be entered into the sweepstake for a chance to win one of the remaining 100 vacations. The grand prize winner will be announced on or about February 2012 and will receive a reunion for up to 10 family members, which includes accommodations; roundtrip airfare; the choice of one activity and one $2,500 USD cash card – a total estimated value of $28,000 USD.
