WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - One Wilmington woman is being treated to a first class trip to anywhere in the United States, she just has to decide where to go.

Wednesday afternoon, Pheoebe Hearron won the vacation competition put on by her employers.

She works at the Beauty Bar Boutique on Military Cutoff Road in Wilmington.

It's a brand new salon that tried to boost sales by giving employees one raffle ticket for every new client they brought in the door.

"I'm hoping that they'll actually go somewhere where they can learn more about their trade," said Roxanne Bigoness from the boutique.  "Relax and have fun as well, but go somewhere where they can continue their education and be a better stylist or makeup artist or whatever they do here at beauty bar boutique."

The news gets even better for the winner - not only does she get to travel anywhere in the world, she gets to take a friend with her.
