We’re so excited to announce the winner of the first-ever Food Network Fantasy Kitchen Giveaway! Big congratulations to Karen Carter of Tucson, AZ, who won $250,000 she can put toward the kitchen of her dreams.

It’s a big surprise when your name is randomly drawn from nearly 25 million entries! "I thought it was a joke at first," said Carter. "I’m so grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I can’t even believe it still."

Carter really enjoyed the inspiration in this year’s Fantasy Kitchen designed by Shea McGee and chef and restaurateur Scott Conant. "It looked amazing," she said — and she especially admired the huge island. We agree, it’s perfect for entertaining! And just the sort of place where you can gather with family — Carter has three grown children and one grandchild, so we can see why the island caught her eye.

Head over to HGTV.com where you can enter twice daily (through June 7, 2018) for your chance to win the HGTV Smart Home 2018, plus a $100K cash prize provided by national mortgage lender Quicken Loans.
