Winners To Las Vegas


Michigander Heads To Vegas, Thanks To Anderson Cooper ‘Anything Can Happen’ Contest

October 8, 2012 -- 4:01 PM

DETROIT (CBS 62) You never know when something new and exciting is about to happen — because “anything can happen” at any time — just ask Karen Flores of Dearborn Heights.

Flores is leaving Wednesday for an all-expenses paid three-day trip to Las Vegas to see Elton John in concert, thanks to winning the Anderson Cooper “Anything Can Happen” contest. The contest gave five lucky winners the chance to see their favorite artist live – including Elton John, Shania Twain, Jerry Seinfeld, Celine Dion or Rod Stewart.

Flores entered the contest on a whim, after catching an episode of the new Anderson Cooper show, which airs locally on CBS 62.

“It’s not the first time I’ve ever entered a contest, but it’s certainly something I don’t even do once year,” Flores said. “I was up north in Oscoda, I love Anderson Cooper, I’ve always loved him, I thought he was one of the bravest people in the world. I heard about it, logged in, and there it was — It just went from there.”

She entered the day Elton John was the featured artist.

“I entered and never thought about it again,” Flores said.

Then she got the call. “My husband came up early (to Oscoda) for the long weekend, and I couldn’t think, I couldn’t speak, I was screaming — it was fabulous,” Flores said.

Elton John is one of her all-time favorite performers, but she’s never seen him live before.

“I’m so excited about the concert,” Flores said. “I’ve never seen him, he’s one of the two bands I missed out seeing in my youth. I can’t wait.”

The trip includes two, so Flores is bringing her husband Ruben — if he keeps behaving, she jokes.

What will be their favorite part of the trip?

Flores has already learned not to predict — because anything could happen.
