What quinceañera wouldn’t want Daddy Yankee performing at her big Quince?  Even better, what parents of a quinceañera wouldn’t want all of the expenses of this costly rite of passage celebration covered by someone other than themselves?!  ¡Así sí tiramos la casa por la ventana! Well, apparently that’s exactly what the folks over at Verizon were thinking when they came up with their “fabulous” Mis Fabulosos Quinces Expo and Giveaway.  That’s right, I said giveaway!

From now until June 31, 2012, young girls across eight different US cities will have the opportunity to enter to win an all expenses paid Quince from Verizon, as well as the privilege of having Daddy Yankee perform at their quinceañera!

You could have Daddy Yankee performing at your Quince!

Specifically, the Grand Prize will include the dress, the cake, a limo, and a party planner – pretty much the works!  The Grand Prize winner will also receive 4 Verizon smartphones, four $250 Verizon Wireless gift cards, and a college scholarship.  Not too shabby eh?!  I’d enter if we had a quinceañera, LOL!

Last year, hundreds turned out for a similar event in Houston.

In order to enter for a chance to win, contestants must submit an essay to the wireless service provider answering the following questions: 1) What does a Quince mean to you? 2) What are you planning to accomplish after high school?  3) How would you use technology to make your Quince dreams come true?

In addition, at each of these eight cities Verizon will be offering free Mis Fabulosos Quinces Expos, which will include a Quince fashion show, local vendors (flowers, dresses and more), technology and social media workshops, a photo station, scavenger hunts, prizes and raffles, as well as a special parent’s lounge with fun and exciting activities just for parents.  Not to mention the chance for attendees to meet Daddy Yankee in person and to get his autograph.

Anyone can attend.  All members of the public have to do to obtain a special VIP pass to meet Daddy Yankee is donate an unused cell phone device the day of, at any one of the eight different locations.  These cell phones are used to support Verizon’s HopeLine against domestic violence.
