Great Date Giveaway: We have a winner!


Congratulations to Ambre Brewster, a pregnant mama in dire need of a date night! Ambre won tickets to see The Passing Zone at Walton Arts Center and a gift certificate for dinner courtesy of Copeland’s of New Orleans in Rogers and

If you missed Ambre’s comment on the website, here it is:

“I would love to have a pre-baby date night with my hubby!!!! Being 33 weeks pregnant and chasing a 19 month old around doesn’t give us much chance to go to dinner and a great show!!!! I’d love a chance to get out for a fun evening!!!”

When Ambre saw the e-mail about winning the Great Date, she said it immediately lowered her blood pressure. “I was in the middle of mommy meltdown!” she said. “It couldn’t have come at a better time.”

Ambre and her husband moved back to Fayetteville when their son, Owen, was five days old. They had met while in graduate school at the University of Arkansas (Ambre has a master’s degree in animal behavior). Ambre originally moved from Canada to Fayetteville with her parents in 1994 to attend high school.

Ambre’s husband works in the field of international safety and leadership training for the oil industry. Sometimes he travels to faraway countries for weeks at a time, she said. She’s already dreading that first trip away after the baby’s born.

“So we definitely need to go out while we can!” she said.

Thanks to Copeland’s, and Walton Arts Center for this fabulous giveaway! For more information on The Passing Zone performance and/or the workshop, contact the Walton Arts Center’s Box Office by calling 479-443-5600 or visit
