My Contest for Springsteen Tickets at The Apollo Theater!

Because of my association with Sirius XM, I was one of the fortunate people to receive three tickets to see Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band perform for the very first time at the intimate and historic Apollo Theater in the Harlem section of New York City.  Sirius XM organized this show as a celebration of their tenth anniversary.  It was also a warm-up for Springsteen and his band’s U.S. and European tour. Subscribers of Sirius XM could obtain tickets through listener emails, as well as various call-in promotions.  I thought it would be fun to have a little contest of my own.  I invited employees to email me with why, in two sentences or less, they would like to see The Boss perform at the Apollo Theater.  I received hundreds of responses and read each and every one.  Everyone’s name was placed in a hat and I drew two lucky winners––Sara Westbrook - Marketing Manager for Retail Marketing and Barb Fight - Television Producer.  They would join me for the concert!  However, Grandmama was called to babysit and Jackie Noble, my wardrobe stylist went in my place.  These photos were taken by Sara, Barb, and Jackie using their iPhones.
