Rockford Social Media News
Michelle Wilgus is winning as of 12-28-11! Michelle is the Belvidere Police officer who entered the Ultimate Saturday Night NFL Fan contest. Michelle has made a savvy use of local media and social media to impact a contest that is international in scope, when you consider the reach of the NFL brand.
Not only is she leading the contest, her fiance’, who is a die hard Bear’s fan, proposed to her at half-time of last Sunday’s Bear vs Packers game. The article describing the proposal in today’s Rockford Register Star noted that she was checking her contest ranking on her cell phone when her fiance’ popped the question. (The NFL is not about to miss out on any searches coming in from a mobile phone)!
So what a fun time! Michelle is working hard to make a dream come true, and is getting more and more of the community involved, through her print and broadcast media efforts…years from now folks will be asking her if she is the Packer fan who was on Facebook.
So everyone follow the link above and go vote. There is no limit to how many times you can vote.
Hope none of the folks that she has to deal with who are on the other side of the law are Bear’s fans though…could make the need for back-up greater.
