AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Augusta Lynx sent two of their most loyal fans on a dream vacation to Jamaica on Saturday, ending one of the most exciting fan promotions in the team’s history.
Charlie and Felicia Brown, who have been season ticket holders since 1998, were scheduled to leave Sunday for a four-day and three-night vacation in Jamaica. The Browns were selected as the grand prize winner in the Lynx Vacations To Remember Jamaica Trip Giveaway.
Charlie Brown was one of four fans whose entry slips were randomly drawn, from the more than 7,000 entries received since opening night, at the Lynx game on January 14. The other finalists were season ticket holders Debbie Smith, Mary Lou Bonczkowski and Nancy Powell.
Being told to be ready to travel to Jamaica on Sunday morning, the four finalists and their guests were invited to Saturday’s game and were on the ice with luggage in hand during the first intermission.
