Last month's winner of the Gomesi Sundress is a good example on why you should take advantage of our double entries rule. May's winner posted a photo of her Awava product on both her Facebook wall and Twitter feed tagging Awava in both pictures so she could get 4 entries into the draw.

But first, here are is the list of the names laid out before the drawing.

And here is the video of the drawing.

Congratulations to you, Carlo Tess.

Remember, for this month, along with Facebook, Twitter and your blogs, we have added Instagram and Pinterest to the drawing. So start mentioning Awava to enter this month's draw.

Our Uganda Friday: Korean Films, Old Cars and Football Wars.

by Darlyne Komukama

The weekends in Kampala these days are jam packed with things to do. Today, we'll tell you about 3 ways to spend your weekend.

2012 Korean Film Festival
The National Theatre will play host to this year's Korean Film Festival. The festival is free to enter and there will be two screenings, one at 4.00pm and one at 7.00pm on Friday and Saturday and one screening, at 4.00pm on Sunday.




Uganda Vintage and Classic Auto Show

The Sheraton Gardens and Lions Bar is where this shindig is going down. (That is my horrible impression of old timey speak and I promise I won't do it again.) People are bringing out their old cars for a family friendly fun filled day with musical stylings of Tshilla, Maurice Kirya and Isaiah Katumwa. So bring your friends, your kids, your family out. The show starts at 12.00pm, goes on until 8.00pm and will cost children UGX 10,000 to enter and adults UGX 25,000.

Uganda Vs Congo Brazzaville

The Uganda Cranes are playing Congo Brazzaville on Saturday, 16th July at Namboole Stadium. Tickets are UGX 5,000 and can be procured at the stadium or before hand at any Total or City Oil petrol station. The Cranes are playing for a place in the Africa Cup Of Nations. This is a clincher for Uganda as it needs to win by at least 2 goals to stay in the running. "This isn't football. This is war!"

Have fun weekend and see you guys on the flip side.
