If you need a reason to feel good about people today, here's one -- when Tina Borders won our New Orleans Mardi Gras Mambo contest, she had no idea she'd even entered. It's because her daughter had entered for her.

Shelby Borders said she wanted to win a trip for her mom and dad to go to Mardi Gras in New Orleans because "they deserved it."

Of course, what goes around comes around -- dad can't make it to New Orleans for Mardi Gras because he's got a corporate meeting out of town. So mom gave the gift right back to her daughter -- Shelby's getting a two-night stay at the New Orleans Sheraton on Canal Street (a $900 value) and $300 in walking-around cash to enjoy Lundi Gras and Mardi Gras.

If you're not a Gator 99.5 Country Club member, you can't win prizes like this.  Of course, it's completely free to join, so do it today!
