A Southern Gospel music cruise and a one-of-a-kind recording were recent prizes in contests aired on Paul Heil's "The Gospel Greats" syndicated radio program.

Louise Prest of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, was the grand prize winner in the program's 2003 Great Annual Giveaway conducted during March. Her prize includes Templeton Tours' Singing At Sea cruise this June plus $1,000.00 cash. Mrs. Prest says she and her husband are excited and looking forward to the cruise, which will be their first cruise.

The Prests hear "The Gospel Greats" program on CHVN Radio in Winnipeg, whose president, Wade Kehler, recently presented a certificate and check to Mrs. Prest.

As the result of another recent giveaway on the program, Mark Hardeman of Donaldsonville, Louisiana, will receive a custom recording of his favorite classic Southern Gospel quartet song done especially for him by the Dove Brothers. The song he selected was the classic, "This Ole House." Hardeman will receive the only copy of this recording. Listeners had been asked to enter by submitting the name of their favorite classic song.

Paul Heil's "The Gospel Greats" program airs on roughly 200 radio stations throughout the United States and in Canada, and is heard worldwide on the internet through affiliated stations.
