A Trip down Memory Lane Becomes a Romantic Getaway for Two
“Ladies’ Night In” Contest Takes Virginia Couple to Romantic Montreal
Gaithersburg, Maryland – October 25, 2007
When Ruth Bousquet set her sights on winning a trip to her husband’s hometown of Montreal, she didn’t fool around.
“I entered the ‘Ladies’ Night In’ contest every day just to increase my chances of winning,” confessed the Winchester, Virginia, resident.
The Grand Prize package worth $1,200 includes a number of fun, romantic prizes, but it was the three-night stay for two at Les Bons Matins Bed and Breakfast in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, that caught Bousquet’s attention. Happily her determination paid off, for in September she won the Grand Prize offered by MyRomanceStory.com.
"I am so excited we won. My husband, Marcel, is from Montreal and this will be the ultimate chance to revisit his homeland. What a wonderful prize this is for both of us," Bousquet explains.
To win the “Ladies’ Night In” contest, all Bousquet had to do was put her love of reading to the test. She had to read two online stories and answer correctly a multiple-choice question about each to qualify for the weekly drawing and the grand prize drawing.
The Bousquets have three grown sons, two of who are currently serving in the military. Ruth has always been a stay-at-home mom, though she does help out as needed at the historical estate in Clarke County, Virginia, where Marcel is the caretaker.
The complete grand prize package includes a three-night stay for two at the romantic Les Bons Matins Bed and Breakfast, Montreal, Quebec, Canada; a gift basket of selected skin care products from Joyful Girl Natural Products; a two-year subscription to MyRomanceStory.com, which includes big discounts for online shopping; and $200 cash.
“What a nice basket full of beauty products—it's just amazing and so beautifully wrapped!“ said a thrilled Bousquet. “With the Les Bons Matins certificate in hand, it makes me want to go right now. The B&B is just across the way from everything we want to see ... the shopping, the architecture and the subway that we want to check out. And many thanks for the check to cover the gas. I sure am a very happy girl.”
The “Ladies’ Night In” contest is sponsored by MyRomanceStory.com, which is published by Maryland-based Arrow Publications, LLC. It is the premier online romance graphic novella site and is enjoyed by millions of readers worldwide.
