Saturday Night with Miriam
03.07.15 - 04.07.15

This week on Saturday Night with Miriam we have another great competition for you at home!

To celebrate the 4th of July, we want to give you the chance to win an amazing trip to The Big Apple - New York City!

You and a friend will stay 5 nights in New York City in a 4-star hotel right in the heart of the action. There's so much to see and do - check out a show on Broadway, relax in the beautiful Central Park, take in the bright lights of Times Square or visit the historic Ellis Island - the options are endless!

And of course a trip to New York is not complete without a checking out Fifth Avenue for a spot of retail therapy, so we will throw in USD$3,000 cash to spend so you can make the most of your break.
