In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Verizon Wireless gave contestants the opportunity to live the Día de tus Sueños (Day of your Dreams) with one of several Latino stars. Six contestants were selected to participate, based on their submissions, and are being rewarded with the experience of a lifetime, along with $1,000.
This month, Día de tus Sueños provided one lucky winner, Anthony Benavidez, with a five star experience to spend the day with Latin Grammy and Latin Billboard nominees, Alexis y Fido, a $1,000 check and a Verizon Wireless 4G Samsung tablet to create a video diary and document his experience. Benavidez, an Arizona native, works with special needs children and uses music to reward and stimulate the students. In his essay Benavidez wrote, “To meet Alexis y Fido is an amazing opportunity for myself to be able to ask about their hard work and dedication despite the struggles and critics.”
Benavidez and his guest, Maria Benavidez, spent the weekend in New York City and were granted an exclusive album listening party with Alexis y Fido, followed by a private lunch.
Verizon Wireless launched the Día de tus Sueños sweepstakes to celebrate the history, contributions and culture of Hispanics across the nation. Please visit Verizon’s website for additional information about the contest, winners and experiences.
