Since I started TVgasm, I have done a lot of things that I never thought I would do, including ever mentioning The Gilmore Girls or admitting an addiction to televised ballroom dancing. My epiphanies continue as I find myself for the first time plugging a Lifetime movie, For One Night, for the first time. I know a lot of you are wondering if I have gone completely crazy, and even though I’ve already demonstrated a love for proms, a movie on Lifetime featuring the star of That’s So Raven is a little bit of a departure. Well, almost. See, when I was asked to plug For One Night, I was told I was going to be able to give away a free digital camera to TVgasm readers. And really, could I say no to you guys and girls? Read more details about the movie and the giveaway after the jump.For One Night is a typically Lifetime-ish movie, in other words, something that my mom would watch. It stars Raven Symone as a girl from Georgia who works hard to integrate her segregated prom. The remarkable part about this Lifetime Original (for some reason, I have use italics when I say that), is not that it is based on a true story, but that it is based on a true story from 2002. It may sound a little to sappy for some people, but this movie has something for everyone. The boys get to watch Aisha Tyler previously seen on Ghost Whisperer and an integration project of her own called Friends, while the ladies can tune into check out Jason Lewis, better known as Samantha’s final love interest on Sex and The City. The movie premieres Monday, February 6th at 9PM (check local listings). For more information, check out the official site.
Now what you’ve all been waiting for. As part of the promotion for the movie, Lifetime has created a Prom Tales website where readers can share and submit prom tales of their own and read more about the movie. As that annoying girl who used to sell prom tickets at my high school used to say “Prom may be for one night, but the memories are forever!”. That may be true, but I am sure you want to know how you can win the Canon Power Shot A520 digital camera, courtesy of PromTales.com.
To enter send your name, e-mail address, phone number and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include “PromTales Giveaway” as the subject of the e-mail. Limited to one entry per person and the winner will be announced 2/6/2006 [not 2005, thanks stacyrocks]. Plus, make sure you submit your own prom tale or photo at PromTales.com. For your trouble (and yes, I will check to make sure your e-mail appears on a prom tale or photo) TVgasm will throw in a 256 MB SD card, good for over 500 pictures, for the winner of the camera and second and third place winners will get an item of their choice from the TVgasm store, but only if you submit a story or photo. Remember, submit your stories at PromTales.com, not in your e-mail.
To clarify, you do not have to enter a Prom Tale to win the camera, only to qualify for the second and third place prizes.
