SIESTA KEY - It's quite possibly the most romantic and definitely the largest giveaway in Siesta Key's history, and even if you and your Valentine are not celebrating today, you could be living it up in love if you win.

The Tropical Beach Resort on Siesta Key is doing a special giveaway this month just for lovers. “Let's really make this month about love and about each other,” says Buddy Yackley.

Yackley is the manager at the Tropical Beach Resort, and the host of Siesta Key's largest giveaway ever. From parasailing to a vow renewal, you both could have a post V-Day celebration worth remembering, and all you have to do is prove your love. “Romantic photos, couples just wanting to do a vow renewal kind of thing, from fun playing to very romantic.

Entering is easy. Simply post your most romantic photos and stories on Tropical Beach Resort's Facebook page.

“Today we're probably just going to hang out. We were thinking of riding jet skis, but probably not anymore. But other than that we'll probably get some steaks and grill them up tonight,” says Doug Emerzian & Tobi Maltz.

The contest winner will be announced at the end of this month, and no matter the story, Yackley says this contest is all about sharing the love. “If you want to be mushy, if you want to be loving, please we encourage it. If you just want to get your point across how much you care about that person, we enjoy that too, because that's something that will be posted there and won't come down.”
