A lucky Harry Potter fan from Chicago, Illinois will soon be on her way to attend the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince premiere in London, England, as she is the winner of the Warner Bros. London Premiere Sweepstakes.  As TLC reported previously, this contest sends the winner and a guest to London for the premiere of the sixth film on July 7th.  The article notes that Penny Lewin, who has not been on a vacation in ten years, is set to take her best friend along with her to the premiere, and hopes to bring back a signed book for her nephew Michael.  The article goes on to say that Ms Lewin was drawn to the books due to her 'love of creativity and imagination,' and soon found she could relate to the series.  A short video of the winner talking more about her prize is embedded on the left-hand side of the page here.

I was just wondering what had happened to the sweepstakes since I hadn’t heard about them in ages…
I would have loved to have won, but congratulations to Penny! Hope she has a great time!

Wait, WHAT? Her nephew didn’t go because he didn’t like flying?! :( That’s sad. I don’t like flying at all but if I won that, I’d go up in the air as much as they needed me to just to go to the premiere. *sigh – that woman is so lucky!

The computer to enter into the sweepstakes was down when I went. Kept saying we were from Indiana. Ah, well, hope Penny and her friend has a great time!
