ATLANTA -- Homeowners can connect with other home improvement enthusiasts and win $5,000 during Kudzu.com's first-ever home improvement sweepstakes which runs now through March 17, 2011.
The sweepstakes is being hosted at www.facebook.com/kudzufans and will award one grand prize of $5,000 in cash. The sweepstakes is open to anyone in the United States and is designed to give the winner a chance to make some much-needed improvements to their home.
"We realize people desperately want to make improvements to their homes but either can't afford to or are too afraid to in the current real estate market," said Rhonda Hills, Kudzu.com vice president and chief marketing officer. "Our sweepstakes will give a lucky winner a chance to get their home improvement projects underway and will give everyone at our Facebook page a chance to connect with other homeowners who share a passion for home improvement."
To enter the sweepstakes, homeowners need to visit the Kudzu.com Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kudzufans and "like" the page. Visitors who "like" the page will then be directed to an online entry form.
The online sweepstakes requires no special submissions for entry, and one grand prize winner will be selected during a random drawing March 17. The winner will be announced via the Kudzu.com Facebook page by the end of March.
