LOS ANGELES--(The Lifeline Program today announced the launch of a new "Lifeline Bucket List Contest" with a holiday, all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles to meet Betty White and celebrate the holidays with her at the L.A. Zoo. The Contest runs from Oct. 1, 2012 through Nov. 9, 2012. For full contest details and entry information, visit: www.facebook.com/LifelineProgram.)--
“Why meeting Betty White is at the top of my holiday Bucket List”
But it wouldn’t be a Betty “White” hot holiday without snow!
Betty White, along with Hollywood’s premier snow effects firm, MagicSnow, will transform the L.A. Zoo into a real-life winter wonderland for the event. Snow will fall from the sky as carolers serenade Betty White and the Lifeline Bucket List Contest winner during their private tour of the Zoo.
Along the way, they will see hundreds of animals including gorillas, elephants, koalas and more plus the opportunity to pose with a frosty snowman at the bear habitat in sunny Southern California!
According to Stephen Terrell, senior vice president of market development and branding for The Lifeline Program, “The Lifeline Bucket List Contest is a fun way for us to celebrate the season, while spreading the word about the financial options Lifeline offers for those in their golden years. Whether you’d like to cross something off your own bucket list or just would like to find some extra cash for the holidays, Lifeline can help you find the perfect option to make your dreams come true. This will be the first of many Bucket List contests to come.”
The contest is open to all legal residents of the 48 contiguous United States (including Washington D.C., but excluding Alaska, Florida, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Texas), where not prohibited by law, who have reached sixty-four (64) years of age at the time they enter the contest, and who have an email address and internet access prior to the start of the contest period. The winner will be announced Nov. 16, 2012.
