‘Happy Hearts Love Sharks’ Press Conference

With only days away, Harry and the Shark Truth team are revving up to launch our ‘Happy Hearts Love Sharks’ Wedding Contest on March 28th, 2010 to encourage couples to Stop the Soup at their wedding and promote shark fin soup alternatives.

Couples that pledge to Stop the Soup at their wedding can enter the contest by sending in a photo or video entry stating their pledge to Stop the Soup and offering their shark fin soup alternative. Our supporters and fans will vote over a 6-week period on the winning couple.

If you are getting married this year in the Greater Vancouver Regional District, British Columbia and want to Stop the Soup at your wedding banquet we invite you to enter in our contest for a trip to Mexico to swim with whale sharks! Couples who have recently gotten married and didn’t serve shark fin soup at their Chinese Banquet are also eligible to enter.

Wedding couples who live outside of the Greater Vancouver area can enter in our international contest pool for a chance to win an underwater digital camera along with an adopt-a-shark package.
