One winner will be selected at random from all followers of Windy City Media Group on Facebook, at www.facebook.com/windycitymediagroup. The winner gets $500 cash and they get to choose from registered Chicago-area non-profit LGBT or AIDS groups, who will then receive $5,000 in free advertising space in any WCMG product: Windy City Times, Nightspots, Windy City Queercast or windycitymediagroup.com .

A second-place winner will receive $250 cash and they get to select a group to receive $2,500 in advertising. The deadline to join the Windy City Media Group Facebook page, to be eligible to win, is Dec. 20, 2011.
