For Immediate Release, June 2010
Enter to Win One of Five Family Vacations to Charleston, S.C. Video Submissions Due June 15

Pack the trunk and print the driving directions—‘tis the season for the great American tradition: the summer road trip. For five lucky families, the bathroom breaks and “Are we there yet?” barrage from the backseat will be a small price to pay, because other than gas and souvenirs, their vacations to Charleston, S.C., will be free.

The second annual Rediscover the Family Vacation Giveaway, a video contest that calls for funny and entertaining submissions, will award five unique travel packages that include five nights accommodations, restaurant gift certificates and admission to many of the destination’s popular attractions. Additionally, the video that receives the most public votes will receive a $2,000 Visa gift card. The goofy music video spoof dubbed “Bald Dad Rapper” that earned the Siriano family from Rochester, NY, a free vacation during the 2009 contest can be viewed atwww.youtube.com/user/charlestonvacation.

The deadline for entries is June 15. Visit charlestonvacationgiveaway.com for complete rules and prize information.
