To cap off the historic Casino San Clemente's 75th anniversary year, the owners are holding a contest to give away a $20,000 wedding package to a deserving couple.
Each entrant must submit a one-page essay about why she'd be the perfect bride to take advantage of the giveaway, whether its an inspiring biography or love story, or if the couple has a deep connection with San Clemente and/or the Casino's history.
“We are looking for a bride-to-be who appreciates our long history, and perhaps has a special 'her-story' of her own to tell,” said Casino owner, Linda Sadeghi in a press release.
Kelly Roemer, the Casino general manager, said the management wants to collect as many diverse stories as possible from which to choose a winner for the Diamond Jubilee contest.
"Ideally, [the winner] will be someone who has a true tie to the Casino, but we wanted to keep it broad," she said. "We want to tie in the Casino's history with a really unique couple's history."
The package includes free use of the facility and special pricing and amenities
from Jay’s Catering, Brett Hickman Photography, High Society Wedding and Event Planning, Society Band and Tangled Vine on Los Rios.
Written, one-page stories about a bride-to-be’s life story or love story should be postmarked by Jan. 31 with the winning Diamond Jubilee Bride to be announced on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, according to a release from the Casino.
