#FLYGSP Chicago Cake Contest

Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) is launching new nonstop service on American Airlines to Chicago, IL on Wednesday, July 5, 2017. Airports typically commission a cake as part of new service launch festivities. These cakes tend to be creative and are sometimes entered into contests on, an international airline/airport network news website, to win their new route cake of the week award.

GSP is asking for your help in finding a local Greenville/Spartanburg area cake designer to make the cake for this event through a public social media contest on Facebook.
