WINNER of Hangout Music Fest Weekend!

It’s official—we’ve confirmed our winner of The Hangout Music Festival Giveaway!

Excitement is building as the festival approaches! Will you be there?

When he read the e-mail indicating he had won, Robert Sinners—a master’s candidate studying public administration in Columbia, South Carolina—was apprehensive, admitting concern that it might be a joke. But after speaking with Corporate PR Director Sarah Kuzma, he soon realized that the prize was real, and his skepticism turned to excitement.

Robert’s $1,300 prize includes a 3-night stay in a 2-bedroom, gulf-front condominium within walking distance of the festival site. Along with the accommodations, Robert and a guest will be treated to three full days of nearly 60 great bands on the beautiful Alabama coastline.

When he arrives, Robert will be given a disposable camera to capture The Hangout Beach, Music & Arts Festival from his viewpoint. We will share some of those photos with you, so be sure to bookmark or follow Meyer Real Estate on any of our social media outlets (see below).

It’s not too late! You can still be a part of this inaugural music event at the beach. See the lineup of the bands and listen to their music. Purchase your 3-day pass or single-day tickets today at Hangout Music Festival. Then save 25–33% on accommodations when you rent a condo or house through Meyer Real Estate.
