Update: After posting our contest with White Cap Frozen Yogurt Thursday afternoon, we received 40 new fans on Facebook in only a few hours. Thank you to everyone who supported us and shared Burien Daily on Facebook for this contest.
After a highly random, highly scientific, and patent pending method of selection, we are happy to announce that the winner of our contest is Tiffany Duane, a Burien resident and alumni of Highline High School.
Thank you to all of our new fans! We also decided to give away runner-up prizes to a couple people. Bradley Shatto and Allie Fadness, you can each go pick up a $5 gift card at White Cap Frozen Yogurt for being our 975th and 1,000th fan on Facebook.
