Online PR News – 06-October-2009 – – The new-home community of 4S Ranch continues its Take Your Best Shot photo contest into the month of October inviting amateur photographers to submit their “Favorite Fall Photo in 4S Ranch” between Thursday, October 1 to Saturday, October 24 for a chance to win a $1,000 Visa Gift Card.

From mid-August through September, photos of families, kids, pets and loved ones enjoying summertime in 4S Ranch were submitted for entry into round one of the photo contest.

Over 900 people voted with Shana Sanguinetti and Heather Long receiving the most votes of photos of their children. Both Shana and Heather won $250 Visa Gift Cards and are now entered for the chance to win the $1,000 grand prize.

When asked about what she will use the $250 for Shana Sanguinetti said, “I’m so happy to win the photo contest and donate the $250 to the Ronald McDonald House. My husband was diagnosed with cancer three months ago and although it has been rough on our family we decided to take a negative and make it a positive by donating our time and money to the Ronald McDonald House. We will be using the proceeds to cook and host a dinner there in October.”

Genelle Kunst, Marketing Manager for 4S Ranch said, “The touching stories and beautiful photos submitted by 4S Ranch residents and neighbors have been amazing. We never expected such enthusiastic response and we look forward to see what images are submitted in fall photo contest!”
