From OP

Well, my wife entered us into an “ugly kitchen” contest being run by a local company. Whoever gets the most votes wins a $15, 000 kitchen renovation.

Person who brought up 150,000 was joking if the sponsor was legally bound to give $150,000 since they made a typo.

Yeah, I appreciate the sentiment but would you mind removing that Zach? (at least the part about being paid $0) This is exactly the kind of thing we were trying to avoid. Thanks =)

Well I wasn't sure with the space in the OP and the typo on the facebook page. They both could have been typos. I see the Facebook page is fixed now.

Congrats OP!

Well the contest is over, so go for it. Just remember the name Think Kitchens and mention them if you ever come across anyone in Halifax who is looking to get their kitchen done :p Lame as hell, i know, but I owe it to the company to at least throw that out there.

I'll make a thread for you to shill in if we are ever looking to get ours done. Seriously though, I'll hit you up for comments if/when we do it (this year is chimney/asbestos/furnace fun).

HaliGAF meetup in your new kitchen.

GAF decided themselves they wanted to vote. There is absolutely no reason for the OP to hold the contest, nor did he say he would in the beginning (I think)

Nobody is saying you are obliged to vote, nor is the OP scamming you into him winning the kitchen. I don't see what you're fussing about.
