Winner Selected by Sundance Vacations’ Facebook Community
WILKES-BARRE, PA–(Marketwire – June 25, 2010) – Sundance Vacations today announced that Troy Nornhold and his wife Denise Nornhold of Williamsport, Pennsylvania are the winners of the Father’s Day Cruise Giveaway Contest. The Father’s Day cruise giveaway is the fifth in a series of Facebook contests by Sundance Vacations to give away six free cruises between April and June. Troy’s wife, Denise, nominated her husband for the contest and was chosen as the winner of the free cruise by Sundance Vacations’ Facebook community.
Troy and Denise have an eight year old son. Denise wrote in her nomination essay that “Troy’s been an awesome husband, father, co-worker, and friend. Some of his volunteering includes being an active member of our Sunday school and church, coaching AYSO soccer, being the PTSO vice-president, being a cub-scout leader, and much more.”
Often times things in life happen unexpectedly and unfortunately, Troy was diagnosed with cancer the weekend of Valentine’s Day. Denise said that “Apparently cancer doesn’t discriminate, but it does affect our lives and many others. Troy, too, has affected the lives of many people. He is kind and caring, and would do anything for anybody. He has always put others’ wants and needs before his own. Being involved in all areas of life is what Troy does best.” Denise finished the nomination essay with “Throughout this whole ordeal, Troy has had a very positive attitude and outlook on life. If anyone is going to beat cancer, Troy will! He deserves a get-away cruise, but more importantly, he deserves a long and healthy life.”
Scott Carey, Sundance Vacations Communications Director, said that “it is terrible that the Nornhold’s have to go through this but it is great to see the community rally together for them. Sundance Vacations just held the contest but the Facebook community came together and voted for the Nornhold’s story. It is great to see people voting for families that have been through a lot.”
To nominate someone for one of Sundance Vacations’ free cruises, members of the Sundance Vacations’ Facebook community simply submit a photo of their nominee and a brief essay that explains why that person should win.
