We want to thank you all for the overwhelming response to our free camp giveaway. In the first 24 hours, over a thousand emails came in from around the world with amazing stories. Below, we wanted to share with you the winning entry that we've chosen to attend our next camp:
"Dear Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp,
There are many reasons why I believe my Dad deserves to be the winner of your give away, so to say.
My Dad gave up touring with a band that had a good chance of making it big to be there when I was born in 1993. There have been many times when I've thought back about it and cried. It kills me to know that he gave up his dream to see me born, even though he's my Father and he did the right thing. He's always loved music and has been playing bass ever since he was 14. Music is all he wants to do in life. It makes him happy; it's everything to him. He's been in plenty of bands but I don't think he's been given all that he really deserves. My Father is a very loving and caring man, and always has been. My Mother has never been there for me so my Dad has been a single parent ever since my parents separated, raising me since I was 4 years old. He's blown off a good many opportunities while I was growing up to be there for me and raise me. When I found out about your program going on, I thought it would be the perfect thing for him. He's always talked about broadening his skills and going to your camp and when I read about the amazing stuff you're doing and all the amazing people that would be there I just knew I had to nominate him. I can't think of anyone more deserving of it.
I apologize for this not being well typed, I'm crying as I write this. I know there might be a million other nominees out there for this but, I really think my Dad deserves it the most. I want to see my Dad happy. I feel like I owe him so much for loving and taking care of me for the 18 years I've been alive. He's not only my Dad, he's my only friend. No matter what weird thing I decide to do to myself, he supports me 100%. He inspires me to never give up on my dream of being an artist no matter what anyone says everyday by how committed and how in love he is with his music. His mother died two years ago from Alzheimer's and I can tell that it gets to him still everyday. I think going and participating in this amazing event will help him with a lot of the stress and depression that he's been going through lately. Please consider my Dad. I wish I could talk to whoever is reading this personally so that I could maybe explain even more and truly show how much this would mean to not only me, but to him. I want my Father to be happy. He's all I have and I'd love to see him smile and have the time of his life.
So please, PLEASE consider my Dad. It's always been his dream to make it big with his musical talent and even though I can't make that happen, I think going and playing with all those awesome Rock Stars that he knows and loves would make him really happy and possibly brighten up his spirits from the loss of his Mother. Even though he tells me that I'm a good daughter, I still feel like I haven't done enough for him and that I'm the reason why he hasn't fulfilled his dreams. Please help me do this for him. I can't stress this enough. I love him so much and I want him to have the time of his life.
Thank you so much <3, Deborah"
Again, there were so many great stories, and so many people deserving of the spot. It was so hard to choose. This is the true spirit of Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, and we are so excited to have this father and daughter as our guests.
NEW COUNSELORS ANNOUNCED
The response we've had for our upcoming camp May 2-6 with Steven Tyler has been overwhelming! We have been busy selecting the best counselors to lead this amazing camp, and we are ready to announce our first round! We're excited to welcome back Gilby Clarke (Guns 'n Roses), Howard Leese (Heart), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne), Vinny Appice (Heaven and Hell) and Phil Soussan (Billy Idol). We will be adding more counselors soon, so keep checking your inbox, and call Beth at 888.762.2263 x 1 to sign up for this camp, or to buy a ticket to the Playboy Mansion!
Our corporate program is starting off 2012 with a boom. Our team building entertainment program is the best deal in corporate entertainment out there. Not only does your group get to rewrite a rock song with the artist who wrote or recording the song, but they get to perform with the artist on stage. Following their performance, your employees get to watch one of the greatest rock 'n' roll jams as all of the counselors come together for an amazing performance.
The permanent long lasting reaction from your employee, executive, or customer is so much better than just simply watching a show. They are part of the show--who doesn't want to rock on stage? You'll be amazed by what your fellow employees can do. At our last event in Orlando, the company's VP of Sales got on stage and had a blistering jam with Simon Kirke and Lita Ford. Afterwards he came up and said he would be forever indebted to Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp because we gave him his dream.
If you're looking for the best supergroups around, let us put together an all star band for your event. For your next corporate entertainment event, please call our office at 888.762.2263 x 4 to speak with David Fishof and let him share the magic of the Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp team building program. We are happy to share references to insure your confidence.
