La Madeleine French Bakery & Café recently revealed the winner in its Pack Your Baguettes Trip to France Sweepstakes. The lucky recipient is Cynthia Sheffield of San Antonio, Texas, a customer of the Alamo Heights bakery.

The contest, which ran from April 18 to July 14, took place through the la Madeleine mobile app. Every time guests scanned or ordered through the app they received an entry into the sweepstakes. There was also a mail-in entry option.

Cynthia Sheffield’s prize includes a trip to Paris and the Loire Valley area of France for Cynthia and one guest, including airfare, train tickets, hotel accommodations, and meals for one week. Additionally, a celebration will be held for her at the Alamo Heights bakery hosted by la Madeleine's founder Patrick Esquerré who is originally from Tours in the Loire Valley. 

“I can't believe I won,” says Sheffield.  “When I learned I was the winner, I was hoping that it wasn't too good to be true.  I have always wanted to go to France and will now be able to check this experience off of my bucket list.  There are many things I love about la Madeleine but my favorite has to be the quaint atmosphere and wonderful custom breakfast crêpes.”
