    My husband deserves to go to Holiday World because he is a great dad and an amazing husband. It would be a great family trip for the three of us!

  2. Kristine Smith

    This would be the gift of a lifetime to my husband – Holiday World is his absolute favorite vacation spot!

  3. Shelby

    My dad is the most hardworking man that I know! He has always been there for me and always does more than expected of him. He deserves a holiday to have some fun because he is the best dad a girl could ask for!

  4. Staci

    Would love to win a trip for my husband. He works hard but we always seem to struggle.

  5. Kelli Hokamp

    Dear ol dad deserves this trip because of how hard he works everyday to save lives and keep the people of St. Louis safe, all while being the best Daddy he can be. He is the Chief of EMS and LOVES what he does. He started saving lives a decade ago in Iraq and this past year spent everyday down in Ferguson, MO doing the same thing. No fear, just a service centered mind. He’s the best daddy to our two boys. They both have a genetic bone marrow failure syndrome and as busy as Dad is, he is always right by their sides through Dr visits, tests, procedures, hospital stays and gives them their nightly injections all with love and such great tenderness. He deserves a carefree few days to enjoy himself and our boys! I’d love to be able to show him my appreciation for all he does by winning him this awesome little trip!!! My boys would love to celebrate Daddy while having the time of their life in Santa Claus!!!
