WINNER: Lorna Gardon

It's been dubbed Orlando's largest cocktail party and if that title isn’t enough to at least pique your interest in The Great Orlando Mixer, how about unlimited craft cocktails artfully mixed by the city's top bartenders along with hors d'oeuvres, live entertainment and attendees decked out in 1920s costumes? Sounds pretty great, doesn't it!

It’s all going down Saturday, March 8 at the Cheyenne Saloon at Church Street Station and YOU and your boo just might be there to join in the revelry.

Tickets are $30 each and include craft cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and live entertainment for the whole night, but you can win a pair here!
