Rhonda Pawlik

Hometown: Newton.

What she won: Four tickets to see Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's “Over the Top” show at Time Warner Cable Arena on Wednesday.

What she told us after the show: “My youngest son Jordan was intrigued with every aspect of the circus and sat mesmerized most of the evening. My husband (James) enjoyed the motorcycles in the steel cage and I was most impressed with the acrobats. My oldest son said that he thought the elephants were the best part. We needed humor in our life and this was a perfect place to laugh and enjoy our time together.”

Hometown: Mooresville.

What she won: Five tickets to see Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's “Over the Top” show at Time Warner Cable Arena on Wednesday.

What she told us after the show: “The circus was great and the seats were awesome. I don't think my children were ever that close to such amazing animals before! They couldn't get over how big the elephants really are! … The best part for me was seeing the awe on their faces and the big smiles as we watched all the acts.”
