(Fremont County, Wyo.) - Shacyria Edmo was in disbelief when she received a phone call saying she was the winner of a trip to New Orleans.

“I was shocked,” she said. “I kept saying, ‘you’re lying.’”

Edmo was the grand prize winner of the 2017 VIP Giveaway held January 23-28. This year’s theme was Mardi Gras and featured New Orleans flavored food, decorations and the music of G’Jai and Jook Joint Band. Edmo’s trip includes a three night’s stay in the French quarter, a jazz brunch at the Court of Two Sisters and a ghost tour. This will be her first trip to Louisiana.

“We’re excited,” she said.
