Described by some as "the experience of a lifetime," each telenovela fan
enjoyed a vacation for five to Universal Studios Hollywood to receive star
treatment with the “VIP Experience” – an exclusive behind-the-scenes guided
tour of a working movie studio including front of the line access for all
theme park rides, shows and attractions.

"The weekend was just incredible. From the first day, we were treated like
superstars," said Ana Brown, 31, winner from San Antonio. "It was so great to
be able to meet two telenovela stars that are currently acting in one of my
favorite novelas. I had to remind myself that they weren’t the characters
themselves, but the talented actors that bring them to life.”

In partnership with Univision Communications Inc, the leading media company
serving Hispanic America, the seven winners were selected from a combination
of local radio promotions and an online sweepstakes through Univision.com.
Another opportunity to win came from a joint promotion with Family Dollar--
all part of the year-long Coca-Cola Telenovela Club program. The winners
experienced an incredible weekend alongside two of Hispanic-America’s biggest
novela actors, Jaime Camil and Patricia Navidad, stars of the hit Univision
Network series “Por Ella Soy Eva” (For Her, I’m Eva), a family-oriented novela
produced by Televisa.

“For more than 100 years, Coca-Cola has been part of the celebrations shared
by Hispanic families. From bautizos to quinceañeras to our kids’ sports
victories to graduation and treasured family vacations, Coke has always been
there to refresh dreams, bring people together and help create new family
memories,” said Al Rondon, Senior Brand Manager, Hispanic Marketing, Coca-Cola
North America.

“We are thrilled to partner with Coca-Cola to give our fans a one-of-a-kind
experience with the stars of the hit novela ‘Por Ella Soy Eva,’” said Rick
Alessandri, executive vice president, Enterprise Development, Univision
Communications Inc. “This is a way to bring fans even closer to the stars they
come to love every day on Univision.”

“We are pleased to bring our novelas to Hispanic families with Coca-Cola, our
partner for many years. With Coke we can give fans the opportunity to make
their dreams come true through the magic world of novelas” said Maca Rotter,
executive director, Televisa Consumer Products.

The winning families from San Antonio, TX, Merced, CA, San Jose, CA and
Wolverine, MI, received airfare, hotel accommodations and tickets to Universal
Studios Hollywood, the theme park known for its thrilling rides, including the
latest blockbuster attraction, “Transformers™: The Ride—3D, and the
world-famous studio tour of the working movie studio. They were joined by
local winners from Bakersfield, CA and San Diego, CA and also received $500 in
spending money plus a personal meet-and-greet with telenovela superstars Camil
and Navidad during a gala hosted by Coca-Cola.

"The Coca-Cola Telenovela Club provided us with the opportunity to meet with
some of our most loyal fans who not only enjoy our work, but also embrace the
telenovela world," said Camil.
