Latitude Margaritaville, the active adult communities by developer Minto Communities and lifestyle brand Margaritaville Holdings, will get national TV exposure all next week when the “Wheel of Fortune” game show takes place amid a custom set including Latitude Margaritaville images and features the giveaway of a new home in one of the communities.
The home, valued at $350,000, will be the grand prize in the program’s Home Sweet Home Giveaway, which will be televised Oct. 29 through Nov. 2.
“After 35 seasons, it’s not an easy feat to do something for the first time, but thanks to Latitude Margaritaville, we’re doing just that by giving away a house,” “Wheel of Fortune” Executive Producer Harry Friedman said in a statement.
The grand prize winner, alternatively, can choose $150,000 in cash or, if not 55 or older, can choose a home in Minto’s Festival community in Davenport, FL.
The themed week on the TV program will feature a special set including images from Latitude Margaritaville communities and Margaritaville-branded products. During the shows, “Wheel of Fortune” contestants will compete to win vacations to Margaritaville Resorts, including properties in Florida, the Caribbean and The Great Smoky Mountains.
“We can’t think of a more fitting place for ‘Wheel of Fortune’ to land than in Margaritaville,” Margaritaville CEO John Cohlan said.
The winner will choose a home in one of the Latitude Margaritaville communities already open in Daytona Beach, FL, and Hilton Head, SC. The companies have plans for additional communities in Watersound, FL, and other locations.
“Minto and Margaritaville are very excited to partner with ‘Wheel of Fortune’ to present this opportunity to the show’s dedicated fans who want to grow older, but not up, living the laid-back, no-worries lifestyle of fun, food and music inspired by singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett,” Minto Communities’ President Mike Belmont said.
More information about the contest and details on how to enter are available on the “Wheel of Fortune” website.
