Winner of free trip to Perugia announced

If you were in the audience last week at the closing night of "Cinema Italian Style," you were in for a treat. One of our three raffle winners was in the audience and heard her name called. No, it was not the Grand Prize winner, nor the Second Place winner, but the winner of Third Place, who was as enthusiastic as can be.

The Grand Prize winner this year is Judi Y of West Seattle. Congratulations, Judi! She is the proud winner of free round-trip airfare for two to Rome, lodging for two for 7 nights in Perugia, transfers, and a wonderful new addition this year: a four-hour Taste Perugia tour.

Second Prize winner is Alex Y, who won a package of 10 Italian lessons from Percorso Italiano, Seattle's premiere language school. This generous donation is from board member Roberta Tauriello Torgerson. Grazie mille!

Third Prize went to Ann P, who took home a $160 gift certificate for Crown Limousine limos, town cars or other around-town transportation. Thank you, Crown Limo!

Our thanks to all of you who purchased raffle tickets this year. Your support allows us to continue offering scholarships, special events, lectures and other activities both here and in Perugia.
