Plate by Plate 2014 Ticket Giveaway

Plate by Plate


[UPDATE 2014-07-25: Since there was more "work" involved this year, I'm not surprised to see that the number of entries is down significantly, to only 26. I had to disqualify 14 people right off the bat for either submitting after the deadline, not including a valid link, not tagging PbP, or not including the Eventbrite URL. I then eliminated people who posted text too similar to my example, didn't leave their full name, or used a junk Twitter account. This left only three entrants: Michael Yeh, Tracy Cayaban, and Cece Chen. In the end, I chose Tracy as the winner due to her mentioning of PACS and her wider reach. Thanks for playing--'til next year!]

On the evening of Saturday, August 2nd, Project by Project will be hosting its 12th annual tasting benefit, Plate by Plate. PbP is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit centered around issues relating to the Asian-American community. Each year, the group chooses a particular theme to focus on, and partners with a charitable organization in that space. This year's theme is mental health, with the partner being Pacific Asian Counseling Services, a local nonprofit that provides culturally-sensitive, language-specific counseling to immigrant families. As always, the upscale tasting will showcase the talents of some of LA's top restaurants, as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from a variety of leading purveyors. After three years at Downtown's Vibiana, this year's event will be held at the Petersen Automotive Museum in the Miracle Mile. To get an idea of what Plate by Plate is like, be sure to check out my report from last year's event.

Tickets are currently on sale at $150 for general admission. However, I'm giving away a pair of VIP tickets (giving you access to the preview hour and VIP lounge), valued at $250 each. In past giveaways, I've asked contestants to leave a comment with a brief blurb about what they're looking forward to most about the event. This year, though, we're attempting to better make use of social media, so we'll try something different. Here's what needs to go down:
  1. On either Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter (pick one), post something about this giveaway, for example, "I just entered for a chance to win two VIP tickets to @ProjectbyProjectLA's Plate by Plate! Check out platebyplate2014.eventbrite.com." Be sure to include the Eventbrite link and the proper PbP tag (@ProjectbyProjectLA for Facebook, @pbpla for Instagram, @pbpla for Twitter).
  2. Leave a comment here with: (a) your name, (b) an email address to reach you, and (c) a link to your post above (be sure to make it a public one).
Please submit entries by noon PDT on July 24th. We'll select the best one (hopefully you can come up with something more creative than my example above) and announce the winner Friday. Good luck!

I didn't realize that you didnt want the content of the post to be too similar to your example. Was that in the instructions?

@anonymous: He said "We'll select the best one (hopefully you can come up with something more creative than my example above)..." Which is why I went out of my way to not use what he said in my entry.

Unfortunately, I got disqualified because I didn't use my real and full name in the post, though I would have given it privately.
