Third Time's a Charm!
Congratulations to MSA employee, Tracie Dagenhart, and her family for winning the Grand Finale in Season 29 of America’s Funniest Home Videos (AFV)!
Tracie filmed her son, Colby, on August 2, 2018 after having his wisdom teeth removed while he was still feeling loopy from the procedure. In the video, Colby thinks their Shih Tzu, Izzy, is a raccoon sitting on their sofa. Little did they know this video would win them AFV’s $10,000 prize, $100,000 prize and, most recently, even their Grand Finale prize for a trip to Disney Aulani in Hawaii!
Yes, you heard right! The AFV’s season finale was aired on Sunday, May 19th where they competed with one other family to win a grand prize for a 5 day, 4 night trip for 4 guests to Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa in Hawaii. When Tracie and her family were revealed as the winners, Disney’s character, Stitch, and staff from the Disney Aulani resort adorned them with beautiful lei necklaces made of fresh tropical flowers and beads.
Tracie says it has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience that she will never forget, and she is looking forward to their trip to Hawaii sometime next year!
