Limo Company Promotes Prom Stretch Through Dance Contest

Posted on March 28, 2014

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Hot dance moves and viral Internet voting are the main ingredients in a contest sponsored by BEST Transportation of St. Louis as the spring prom season approaches.
 
A free, six-hour ride in one of BEST Transportation’s luxury, stretch limousines is the prize for the winner of the contest, which can be viewed and entered on BEST Transportation’s Facebook page.  

Entrants need just four requirements: (1) take a video showing their ‘BEST’ dance moves; (2) upload the video to YouTube, Vine or Instagram; (3) post the video link through the contest entry form on the BEST Transportation Facebook page; and (4) get friends to vote for it.
 
The contest, which is free and open to the public, ends Sunday, April 6. The winner will be contacted by BEST Transportation on Tuesday, April 8. The free limousine ride is good through Dec. 30, 2014. It can be used for a prom night or for any number of social occasions.
 
“As young adults gear up for the annual prom and spring social season, we invite them to put their BEST dance moves in gear and show them off to everyone on our Facebook page,” said Kim Garner, co-president of BEST Transportation, in a press release.  “A free ride in one of our stylish, stretch limousines will add flair and fun to any occasion.”
 
Prom night also can be a very exciting yet anxious night for the parents. BEST Transportation goes to great lengths to ensure that teens are safe during such special events. A company chauffeur can check in with parents throughout the evening and is just a phone call away for parents. BEST’s professional chauffeurs have been trained how to make sure teens have a fun evening while also following the law. No alcohol ever is allowed.
