First County Bank is excited to announce that Patty Patineta of New Canaan is the winner of the “Gotta Love It” photo contest. Her “healthy” photo depicts a gorgeous meal of grilled fish and side of fresh corn. Her photo generated more than 70 likes and many cheering comments. Patty wins a $50 Gift Card from downtown Stamford’s Capriccio Café. The “Gotta Love It” photo contest was held from February 4 through February 15 and generated a smorgasbord of tasty photos from bank customers and their family and friends making this one of our most successful contests to date.

“The photo contest was  a wonderful opportunity for our Facebook fans to engage in a social event that supports healthy eating, was fun, engaging and connected them to the bank’s Tasty ad campaign,” said Karen Kelly, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of First County Bank.

“The photos were truly ‘delicious’ and from a social media perspective, generated the kind of engagement we like to see on our Facebook and Twitter sites – lots of “liking”, “sharing” and “commenting.” It also gave us an opportunity to support one of our Stamford area business customers, Capriccio Café.”

The “Gotta Love It” photo contest invited First County Bank Facebook fans, family and friends to submit a photo of their favorite home cooked meal in any of the four Tasty ad campaign themes; Fresh, Pure, Healthy or Savory. The photo with the most likes would win a $50 gift card to downtown Stamford’s Capriccio Café!
