Jen Cercone Wins the Great Escape to Disney

WJER is sending out BIG congratulations to Jen Cercone of Dover, who was selected as the grand prize winner in our 2018 Great Escape to Disney contest! Jen was selected as a semi-finalist to participate in our grand prize drawing held on March 15th at The Manor Restaurant in Strasburg. Jen was one of 17 semi-finalists who participated in our reverse elimination drawing, and because her name was the last one drawn from our contest box, she was the big winner of a trip for two to Disney! The grand prize includes round-trip airfare, round-trip transfers from the airport to the hotel, a six-night/seven-day stay at a Disney Value Resort hotel, and Disney six-day base ticket/theme park admission.

Our first runner up was Mary Jo Gavin of New Philadelphia, who walked away with a one-year membership to the Tuscarawas County YMCA, and our second runner up was Gene Donofrio of New Philadelphia, who received four tickets to the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. We also held a random drawing from our semi-finalists for a pair of tickets to the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors game on March 21
st, and semi-finalist Shannon Karcher of Sherrodsville was the lucky winner. ALL of our semi-finalists received prizes just for attending, including a pair of tickets to the I-X Indoor Amusement Park, a $10 gift card to The Manor Restaurant, a 2018 Cleveland Indians schedule, and a WJER T-shirt and bottle of water.

Thanks to everyone who signed up for a chance to win and to all of our sponsors for making the 36
th edition of the Great Escape contest possible. Congratulations, Jen…YOU’RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!
