Virgin Mobile begins FreeFest contest promotion
Virgin Mobile Canada, Samsung Electronics Canada and Porter Airlines have begun a joint contest promotion tied to the upcoming Virgin Mobile FreeFest music festival. The event will take place on Sept. 21 in Columbia, MD. The winners and their guests will receive a trip by private jet to the festival, as well as accommodation and various Samsung products. In addition, Virgin Mobile Canada and Samsung Hope for Children will make a donation in each winner's name to the Virgin Unite ReGeneration program that works to assist at-risk and homeless youth in Canada. Virgin Mobile customers can enter online at <http://www.virginmobile.ca/benefits> until Aug. 31. Consumers who buy and activate any Samsung mobile phone with Virgin Mobile before Aug. 31 will also be entered in the draw. Visitors to the Samsung Mobile Canada Facebook or Twitter pages can also enter the contest. "The Virgin Mobile FreeFest experience is one of our biggest Member benefits yet," said Andrew Bridge, managing director of Virgin Mobile Canada. "Teaming up with Samsung has allowed us to create a truly unforgettable experience for our members while also supporting Virgin's ReGeneration movement both here in Canada and in the United States."
