Detroit, MI (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
Quicken Loans, Inc., the 50-state lender of refinance, purchase and VA mortgages, announced the winners of the 2011 Quicken Loans Carrier Classic Facebook and Twitter contests for tickets to the historic game.
Held on November 11, 2011, the Veterans Day matchup between the Michigan State Spartans and the University of North Carolina Tar Heels will tip off the college basketball season. The game will be played in front of 7,000 military personnel and spectators on the flight deck of the United States Navy Aircraft Carrier USS Carl Vinson, docked at Naval Base Coronado in the San Diego Harbor.
The Facebook contest winner of tickets, airfare, hotel and a gift card for spending money is Jenny Hebert of Louisiana, who is bringing her son Jacob to the event.
“Our family is totally appreciative for the sacrifices (service members) and their families made, they are always in our thoughts and prayers. My son is a huge basketball fan and we can’t wait to take this trip together,” said Hebert.
The Twitter contest winner of two tickets to the game is Danielle Blaney of Texas, who will be sharing the experience with her husband Jeremy who serves in the US Air Force, and will be deployed in January (both are Michigan State University graduates).
“It will be an excellent mini-vacation for us to see our team play this year and spend time together before he leaves. Having it on Veterans Day to celebrate those who serve/have served, as well as the setting, will be incredibly special,” said Blaney.
Quicken Loans is proud to partner with Morale Entertainment, the United States Navy, ESPN, Michigan State University and the University of North Carolina for this special event. ESPN will televise the event at 7:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. PT).
