Sunwing Thanking Frontline Workers with Vacation Giveaway


Sunwing is saying thank you by giving away vacations to frontline workers. 

Spokesperson Stacy Raivich says people can enter themselves or nominate a friend on the frontlines either by filling out the form at their website or sharing a photo to Instagram on why your frontline hero deserves a holiday. 

“We think there’s nothing better to thank them than an all inclusive vacation to the Royalton Luxury Resorts. It is all inclusive and it would just be a beautiful way to relax and destress after everything that everyone’s going through.”

Raivich says the only criteria to enter is that you’ve been working on the frontlines fighting COVID-19 and they’ve received many beautiful stories already. 

The deadline to enter is June 30th.
