As you’re already aware, Beasley Media Group has a contest that’s giving out $1,000 – 5 times a day – for 5 weeks. That’s $125,000! The contest runs from Monday, April 8, 2024 through Friday, May 10, 2024. So let’s manifest that win and decide what you’ll spend it on. We’ve come up with some things to do in Southwest Florida if you win the $1,000 this spring.

Listen weekdays at 8am, 10am, 12 noon, 3pm & 5pm ET for your chance to win $1000.

When you hear the keyword enter it here on the website, or on the station’s app or text the keyword to 45911 no later than fifteen (15) minutes after the start of the hour during which the keyword is announced to be entered for a chance to win a $1000 cash prize.

So what can you do here in Southwest Florida with the money you’re about to win? Well, some of the best things are (nearly) free. Most of the beaches are open and are absolutely gorgeous. If you can get to Bonita beach early enough (or on a weekday), you can find one of the free parking spots at a beach access. if not, you double back to Barefoot Beach and pay a $10 parking fee. If you have a Collier County Resident Beach Parking Permit, it’s not even that.

Sanibel Island toll is $9 if you don’t have a transponder. Show some love to Sanibel and Captiva. They’re rebuilding, but it’s going to take time.

So let’s spend this money. You entered the word and you’re waiting on the call back. So what to do? Let’s come up with some of the ways to spend that money.
