We are happy to announce the Grand Prize Winner of our Spring Surprises Video Contest—Debbie McFadden of Towson, Maryland. 

Debbie’s video features her daughter, Haley, and her 9th birthday surprise.  Debbie and her husband waited until the night before Haley’s big day to surprise her with a trip to the lodge

“I’m glad I taped her opening her card. I just figured it would be nice to get her reaction. I never thought she would get so emotional!” Debbie told us, “It showed us how much she appreciated it and how much she must have loved her first trip.”

Staying true to the contest theme, Debbie and her husband surprised Haley when they told her their video had won.

“We waited until Haley got home from school and told her we needed to talk to her. She asked us, ‘Did I do something wrong?’…we made her wait it out a little!”

Once they told her the video was the winning entry, Haley screamed (again) and jumped up and down with excitement.

Debbie and her family will receive a two-night stay, plus meals, at the Great Wolf Lodge of their choice.  And in case you were wondering, Haley’s BFF Bridget will be joining the family on their trip back to the Williamsburg, Virginia Lodge.
