Anaheim, Calif. (June 21, 2011) - Contiki Vacations, the leader in fun travel packages for 18-35 year olds, is pleased to announce Victoria Dillivan of Chicago, Illinois, as the grand prize winner of a Contiki London & Paris vacation for two. Contiki recently partnered with specialty fashion retailer Forever 21 to give fans the chance to win the trip of a lifetime and a $100 Forever 21 gift card. Forever 21 unveiled the lucky contestant's name on their website on Monday.
When asked about winning the competition, Ms. Dillivan stated, "It's so exciting - I entered every single day - and it paid off! I'm going to bring my brother; he's never been out of the U.S. before and he loves the Beatles, so when I told him we were going to London, he was shaking. This is going to be a sister-brother bonding trip and I'm really excited to share this with him and see London and Paris with new eyes and take it all in."
Over 55,000 people registered to participate in the competition, and a winner was selected at random. Ms. Dillivan plans to share her experiences on Contiki's blog after she returns from her vacation at http://blog.contiki.com.
