)-- Long-time St. Maarten visitor Jeff Berger's "Everything St. Maarten" website, started in 1994, will reach 3.5-million site visits this year and Berger will give away six St. Maarten / St. Martin vacations to celebrate.
"We're celebrating by giving away lots of things that exemplify some of what the island offers," Berger says. He is CEO of JMB Communications of Plymouth, Massachusetts, owners of the Everything St. Maarten website.
Among the prizes are vacations at: Hotel L'Esplanade, Grand Case; Divi Little Bay Beach Hotel, Little Bay; Oyster Bay Beach Resort, Oyster Pond; Summit Resort Hotel, Cupecoy; Club Fantastico, Orient Bay (naturist); and the legendary Mary's Boon Beach Resort on beautiful Simpson Bay Beach.
In addition to the six vacations, "Everything St. Maarten" is offering: Dinner for two at renowned Chef Dino Jagtiani's Temptation or Rare restaurants; Dinner for two at IZI Ristorante Italiano; Dinner for two at Spiga Restaurant; Dinner for two at Le Pressoir Restaurant; Dinner for two at Daniel's By The Sea; Dinner for two at Pineapple Pete; Dinner for two at Toppers or Toppers by the Sea; Breakfast or lunch for two at Mr. Busby's Beach Bar or Island Pizza; Free day trip to Tintamarre aboard Neil Roebert's Celine catamaran; Free massage from Tricia Altenau from AIA Massage; Free factory tour and free ice cream from Etna Ice Cream; Free one-week car rental from Unique Car Rental; and Free cell phone rental from Sharon's Cell Phone Rental.
"People can enter online directly from the home page of our site at www.everythingsxm.com," Berger says. "We are not doing any paper ballots and our web servers are wind powered, so this giveaway is about as 'green' as it gets," he notes.
Of the thousands of entries received, 50 will be randomly selected and from those 50 the top 6 will be phoned by Jeff Berger and Jeff Sochrin of Island92 radio in St. Maarten. That call will happen the Monday morning following Thanksgiving in the USA and "that's how we will get our winners. You must answer your phone to win," Berger says. Complete information is on the entry form online.
Began in 1994
Ever since first visiting SXM in 1978 with a group from a Boston-based company, Berger has been spreading the word about SXM. "When I launched the first website for my PR business in 1994, I included several writing samples among which was a mini-travelogue about SXM. When the search engines kicked in, I started hearing from people in SXM whose businesses were being visited by people who saw my travelogue. Off it went."
The site today has dozens of pages devoted to both sides of the island, a tourist-oriented weekly newsletter with a readership of over 174,000, and a membership component which offers its members about 140 discounts on both sides of the island.
