Are you feeling nervous? Excited? BOTH? Happy re-opening day California! Oh and if you procrastinated on getting a Covid vaccination shot until the Governor offered INSANE INCENTIVES...you may have just become one of 10 people who is now a MILLIONAIRE! And yes, please read this with a slightly BITTER TONE as I, like MANY or MOST got vaccinated when I was asked to...MONTHS ago...WAY BEFORE any of these 'incentives' were announced for the late birds ;/ In the states Vax for the Win contest, THOUSANDS of prizes were given out as incentives to the late vaxers, with the final round today, that made 10 Californian's MILLIONAIRES. The winners were drawn during an event at Universal Studios that also marked the end of California’s stay at home order. 7 Southern Californians won 1.5 MILLION...4 Los Angeles County residents, 1 from Riverside County, 1 person in Santa Barbara County and another in Ventura County.
Governor Newsom also announced the California Dream Vacation incentive that will select six people to win a trip to destinations like Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego...he also alluded that some of the giveaways could include everything from Disneyland tickets, to seats at a Lakers game and a stay at the Ritz Carlton in Palm Springs. That drawing is set to happen on July 1.
