Winners Announced

LCFF Director, Chris Leverson with Winner Candis Carlson
Congratulations to Matt and Candis Carlson for being the 1st Place Winners of our 2016 “World of Tastes in the Heart of Lake City” business promotion program.
Our third year of this program saw a bit of a re-design with the addition of more locations and three tiers of prizes to encourage more participation.
When I asked Matt how the process was for him, he said “I was surprised at how many great places that there are in Lake City. We really enjoyed the Beer Authority. It was actually our first stop. They had a fantastic drink selection and the owner was very helpful. I also like that they start and end their day on 12’s because of their love for the Hawks.”

Matt and Candis embarked on an epic adventure to complete the passport. “We actually completed the card tour in one day by walking to each place and grabbing a snack or drink at each location to try them all out” said Matt.  The Carlson’s received their $500 Visa gift card supplied by Lake City’s own Pierre Ford.
2nd place went to Thomas McQueen. Thomas will enjoy a $50 Visa card, $25 to Manila Manila and a month of free yoga classes courtesy of Two Dog Yoga http://www.twodogyoga.com/.
Our lucky third place winner was Kelley Greenewood and she will be enjoying her $50 gift card thanks to Elliott Bay Brewery http://elliottbaybrewing.com/.
