Ray’s is turning 40 in 2013 – are you too?

We’re celebrating all year long with our friends and fans, and have created a fun contest for you to win your 40th birthday party at Ray’s!  The grand prize winner will win a birthday party for 25 friends in our remodeled Boathouse, featuring great food, drink and festivities!

If your 40th birthday falls between May 1 – Dec. 31, 2013, please go to the Ray’s Facebook page , and look for the contest entry link (beginning April 3 at 8am).  Then submit a short entry (150-500 words) on why you want to have your 40th birthday party at Ray’s! In addition, you’ll need to submit at least one photo with your entry, so have fun and show us all the friends you’d invite, or show us your birthday party as a child or some other creative idea!

The entry submission period is April 3-11, and then all entries will be open to voting by our Facebook fans between April 12-21 (see entries and vote here!).   This is a contest so have fun with it and be sure to invite all your friends to “like” the Ray’s Facebook page, and ask them to vote for your entry!  People may submit one vote per day, per entry.

The three entries that receive the most fan votes by April 21 are eligible for the Grand Prize, which will be selected by the Ray’s management team and one winner will be announced on April 25.  Complete entry guidelines and contest rules can be found on the Facebook contest page.

    I will be visiting Washington (Seattle) for the first time and turning 4-0… Also, for the first time. I chose your beautiful city to spend this milestone. 1973 was a good year.
