WILKES-BARRE, Pa., Feb. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sundance Vacations is proud to announce the winner $50,000 in the annual prize giveaway!
The winner of the drawing is Dr. Eric Orenstein, of Lafayette, Indiana, and he selected the option of receiving $50,000. Orenstein was able to choose between a luxury car or $50,000 in cash.
I've never won anything like this before, I'm not that lucky" Orenstein chuckled. "I'm still paying for my daughter's schooling, so I think that this will come in handy to help pay her tuition.
"It was pretty easy to register, I just had to fill out a short form that took a couple minutes. I think it's always worth taking a chance, you might win just like I won."

In the 12 years that Sundance Vacations has been offering their exciting prize giveaway, no one has ever chosen the automobile option. This means that over the past 12 years Sundance Vacations has given away $600 thousand in prize money to its winners. That's over a half a million dollars!
"While cars are great, everyone, and I mean everyone, loves extra money," said Joe Molitoris, Vice President of Marketing for Sundance Vacations. "In this day and age it seems that most people can always use a couple extra bucks to help stretch their budget. That's why Sundance Vacations offers such affordable vacations, because we know that people out there are looking for a great value and want to travel to great places for prices that won't break the bank. $50,000 can go a long way, it means an addition to the house, an exciting vacation or an investment in the future."
