“Last year, our Great Beach Getaway Giveaway provided those attending Friday Night Sound Waves the chance to win a vacation in their backyard, at our luxury beachfront hotels and resorts,” said Arianne Glassman, producer of Friday Night Sound Waves. “This year, our giveaway has a little twist courtesy of two of our giveaway sponsors, Southwest Airlines and Hilton Hotels, in that we can invite sun, fun and music lovers from around the corner to around the country, an opportunity to join us for a truly great getaway this summer.”


In a community effort to show off the warmth and hospitality of the Fort Lauderdale Beach destination, the Greater Fort Lauderdale CVB will also be giving winners a swag bag and Summer Savings 2-4-1 Card, and members from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce Beach Council and Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association (FRLA) are contributing attraction tickets and dining vouchers. Series sponsors Visit Florida and the FRLA are helping to get the word out.


“Hilton’s commitment to be the most hospitable company in the world includes creating heartfelt experiences for our guests,” said John Allen, General Manager of the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort. “We are delighted to participate with our community partners and be able to offer the lucky winner a chance to experience our hotels and the great attractions and venues that Fort Lauderdale has to offer.”


A Second Opportunity to Win

Locals and visitors attending the weekly Friday Night Sound Waves free music series will have the opportunity to register and win free air travel while attending select concert dates presented by Southwest Airlines in June and July. Organizers will also hold weekly drawings for various Fort Lauderdale Beach experiences.


“At Southwest, we connect people to what is important in their lives, and that work continues beyond the airport and into the communities we serve,” said Southwest Airlines Senior Vice President Steve Goldberg. “We look forward to being a part of Friday Night Sound Waves and further introduce our Customers to the additional International destinations we will soon offer from their local airport in Fort Lauderdale.”
