Penny Hanks logged into her Facebook account and searched for “St. Louis Blues” on Tuesday, hoping to list them as one of her favorite teams on Facebook.

After her search returned multiple results, she assumed the official Blues account was probably the one with 99,999 fans, so she clicked the “Like” button.

Not only did she guess right about the official account; but she earned the distinct honor of being the club’s 100,000th fan on the social networking website.

As a result, Penny and a guest will be attending an upcoming Blues game at Scottrade Center.

“It’s really exciting. I couldn’t believe it,” Penny said recently. “I’ve been on Facebook for about two years now.”

Although she didn't realize it at the time, she quickly learned that the Blues were going to randomly select fans for prizes once they reached the milestone. Shortly after she clicked the "Like" button, the Blues announced they had reached 100,000 fans and thanked Penny in the process.

Sixteen winners were randomly chosen on Wednesday: Matt Megl, the grand prize winner, will receive a pair of Mezzanine Level Season Tickets for the 2011-12 season. Five second place winners will receive an autographed Blues item and a pair of Plaza Level tickets to an upcoming game, while 10 third place winners will get two tickets to an upcoming game.

The winning names are listed below. Winners will be contacted via their Facebook accounts with instructions on how to claim their prizes. They should expect those details sometime next week.

Grand Prize Winner: Matt Megl
2nd Place Winners: Ted Jason Fowler, Matthew Sutton, Aaron Willbrand, Heather Brumley Smith, Sam Loreth
3rd Place Winners: Celia Graves, Mark Schroy, Bob Adams, Amber Rekrunkk, Angie Collins, Lisa Poinsett, James Lampton, Stephanie Gore, Karen Luetkemeyer, and Mike N Christy Ridenour.

In addition, as a special thank you for being part of this special milestone, all Blues fans on Facebook received a special ticket offer for the Feb. 14 game vs. Vancouver. To receive offers like these in the future, become a fan of the Blues on Facebook by visiting www.facebook.com/St.LouisBlues
