JT Road Manager For The Day Winner!
And we have a winner...
Samantha Boydman was the lucky winner of Prizeo's 20/20 Experience campaign - Win a Day on the Road with Justin Timberlake. Samantha was flown from her home in Las Vegas to New York to shadow Justin's road manager for his sold-out December 14th show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Samantha and a guest were then treated to VIP tickets to the concert. She even got to meet Justin himself!
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the campaign and helped raise awareness and funds for the charity Musicians On Call. Musicians On Call brings live and recorded music to people in hospitals to brighten their day. See video:
