2015 Chef’s Gala Social Media Contest Winner
Last month, we issued a social media challenge to our fans and followers. By posting a recap of their experience at the Chef’s Gala Media Preview with a photo and tagging Heart of Florida United Way, participants were entered into a drawing for a $75 Primo gift card.
We had dozens of entries, but the lucky winner is Lisa Wilk @WineChix. Lisa is a local food blogger at @TasteCookSip.
