Before I announce the winners of the Goin’ Coastal with Kenny & Costa Photo Contest I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to submit a photo and everyone who kept voting for their favorites. We had 89 amazing photos submitted of people living the island lifestyle and I loved them all! Fun contests like this wouldn’t be possible without great people like all of you and for that I thank you. Nice work Castaways!

Secondly I’d like to thank the great people of Costa del Mar for donating two rockin’ Kenny Chesney signature Costa sunglasses. Kenny and Costa teamed up three years ago to bring people a signature line of sunglasses. Not only are Kenny’s island lifestyle and Costa’s water lifestyle a perfect match, but $5 from each pair sold goes to the Coastal Conservation Association. The Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) is a grassroots advocacy organization dedicated to ocean and coastal conservation programs. Since 2010, more than $80,000 has already been donated to CCA as a result of the Kenny Chesney and Costa partnership. The CCA has helped fund habitat restoration initiatives throughout the Gulf of Mexico as well as reef creation and oyster restoration projects around the Southeast.

Now with that all said, it’s time to announce the winners!
