AND THE WINNER IS… {The Big 1 Giveaway} | Santa Clarita Photographer

First of all, let me just say that I am amazed at the sheer volume of post views on the original The Big 1 Giveaway blog post, titled to inspire people to support their community and assist those in need.  This truly says something about the community of Santa Clarita; a community of caring, supportive individuals and families willing to support those in tough situations in trying economic times, those who must face adversity on a daily basis, and those whose spend more time giving to others than caring for themselves.

Truly, the nominees must really be feeling the love right now. In all, there were 66 votes for the giveaway (note that one replied to another comment so the total comment count is not accurate).  66 times, friends, family, and community members took their valuable time to tell these nominees that they are important, that they matter.  Thank you to all of the voters for making these nominees feel special.

Without further adeau, the winner of The Big 1 Giveaway is…

The Big 1 Giveaway { Giving Back to Santa Clarita }

*** Please note: Nomations will now be accepted for an additional week. The due date has been updated in this blog post. ***

The end of last week marked Cristen Farrell Photography‘s 1 year anniversary of being in business I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate.  I am proud to say that I have been an Santa Clarita Valley resident for the past 25 years and I am beyond proud of what this town has become.  During this past year, the SCV community has rallied around me and supported me every step of the way, so I really want to focus this celebration on giving back all the love that has been given to me.

At this time, I am requesting nominations for an SCV individual or family who is in need or who you think just plain deserves an awesome prize.  To nominate a family or individual, please leave a comment on this blog post.  You choose how much information to share, but please be respectful of their privacy; please at least include the first letter of the last name so they can be identified during voting (if the individual or family wins, more specific information will be required, but it will be kept private).  Nominations will be accepted through Tuesday, August 9th.
