I Won 5 Free Tickets to Hawaii International Film Festival! Mahalo @InsideOutHawaii


“Hi Damon,

Hope you had a great weekend. I was just informed that the tickets can only be used on Oahu. I’m so sorry about the inconvenience. I had already sent the prize package before I knew, so you’ll be receiving it in the mail.

I hope you still get a chance to experience HIFF when it arrives on the Big Island. Thanks again for your support.

Take care,”

I entered a Twitter contest for tickets to the Hawaii International Film Festival by Re-tweeting the following to @InsideOutHawaii:
