Laura Ludwig is heading to Cabo!

Our Local BINGO Grand Prize Winner, Laura Ludwig!

It was life as usual for Laura Ludwig of Beaverdale until she got a call from the Urban515 office to let her know she was our Local BINGO Grand Prize Winner! A substitute teacher by-day, and a local foodie by-night and weekend, Laura did her homework after picking up a Local BINGO card at her neighborhood Dahl’s. She was thrilled to see the lineup of participating businesses, Campbell’s Nutrition, Tally’s, Mojo’s – they were all her favorites! After some research on Urban515 and the Urban Card®, she was in and set out to win the trip to Cabo San Lucas! She appreciated our values and the idea of the Urban Card® saving her money all year long at her preferred local establishments, and she loved how Local BINGO gave her a goal to accomplish.

With her eye on the prize, she allowed her taste buds to lead the way. She hit a few of her favorite spots like Mojo’s on 86th, Grounds for Celebration, Fong’s Pizza, and Big City Burgers for four of her BINGO stamps, and then tried something new at Hoshi Sushi for her last and final stamp to complete her card. Had it not been for the contest, Laura may never have tried Hoshi, but now has become a regular customer. She says, “they have the best sushi in town.”

Of course, you can probably imagine our delight in hearing this, validating that we accomplished our own Local BINGO goals – encouraging people to try something new and with the Urban Card®, help them become year-long VIP regulars.

Abby, 10, will accompany her mom at Cabo.

Laura feels “ecstatic” about winning the 4 day/3 night vacay to the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort in Cabo plus airfare for two. Her “plus one” will be her daughter, Abby, who is ten years old and most excited to swim with the dolphins. True to form, Laura has already researched the property and the possibility of her parents joining her. Thankful for the help of Phyllis at Journey’s Travel Agency, they’ll likely be hitting the beaches of CABO during Christmas break.

We couldn’t be happier for Laura and feel she is the perfect winner of Local BINGO given her equal enthusiasm for local food and for finding Hoshi Sushi, “a hidden gem,” she’ll be able to frequent forevermore.

Bon Voyage, Laura! Have a great time…and just a traveler’s note of warning – no sushi in Mexico, ok?! Leave that to the fabulous local foodie scene of Des Moines! :)


Thanks for playing Local BINGO, rock!
