Someone in Galveston County is $3,000 richer, thanks to The Daily News. 

Denese Angelle, originally from Texas City and now a resident of Santa Fe, is this year’s winner of the “Dream Vacation Giveaway” from The Daily News. 

We are so happy to help Denese take a dream vacation. 

With the Carnival Triumph looking on from behind, I presented Ms. Angelle with a check to help her dreams come true. 

The contest attracted thousands of entries from across Galveston County. 

The contest, which we invited everyone to enter, was soon copied by other newspapers in the county — including the Houston Chronicle — and was a tremendous success. 

It was fun to engage with both new and existing subscribers in this way — everyone has a dream vacation hidden away in their personal bucket list.
