VEGAS (January 23, 2017) - The Vegas Golden Knights announced today, January 23, the winners of their #BoldInGold NHL All-Star Weekend Fan Experience Contest. The contest originally called for only one winner plus their guest but because of the number of entries and the quality of entries, the Golden Knights selected two.
"The positive response to this initiative was overwhelming," said Vegas Golden Knights Majority Owner Bill Foley. "The entries were so strong that we decided to add a second winner, so now two of our most passionate fans and their guests will be going to All-Star Weekend. Congratulations to both the winners and thanks to all of the Golden Knights fans around the world who participated."
Fans can view the winning entries on vegasgoldenknights.com. Media interested in a photo of these can email Eric Tosi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the winning selections pictured an entire Las Vegas family in their driveway dressed up in Golden Knights gear with hockey sticks and swords for props. The other winner submitted their entry minutes before the deadline on Friday and were selected because of their positive message and unmistakable passion for the Golden Knights.
These two are now the third pair of Golden Knights fans to be awarded with a trip to All-Star Weekend, as on Thursday, Bill Foley surprised season ticket holder Steve McNabb with a trip to All-Star Weekend as well. A recap of this visit will be posted on vegasgoldenknights.com on Tuesday.
