Last night, one lucky fan of William Shatner got to have dinner with William and Elizabeth Shatner.
The contest began back in March in honor of Shatner’s eighty-first birthday, when it was announced that the millionth follower of Shatner would win tickets to Shatner’s “Shatner’s World” show plus dinner with Shatner and wife afterwards.
“I am really jazzed up on this ‘Thrill Bill with a Mill’ for his birthday and I want to put in a couple incentives to get Bill to 1 Million by his birthday this week,” said Elizabeth Shatner on William Shatner’s website. “The 1 millionth follower will get the choice of Tickets to Shatner’s World at the closest city near them plus dinner with Bill and I afterwards!”
The lucky winner was Troy Pound of Wagener, South Carolina. Pound and his wife were treated to dinner with the Shatners after the show.
“As promised, the millionth Twitter follower,” said Shatner, in a video taken of the event. “We’re having dinner. Thank you, everybody.”
Pound tweeted about the dinner. “Still in awe of last night’s dinner,” he said. “What a wonderful time we had. Thank you.”
