Fall 2013 – Laurita Idol Competition Concludes
Hollywood Who? Idol Contestants Rock the House in New Egypt
After truly talented performers sang their hearts out over the past six weeks at the Laurita Idol Contest – Laurita Winery Style, we are proud to announce that Frank Hughes of Jackson, NJ took home the 1st place grand prize of $1000.00! Coming in a close second was the talented Shannon Gonzales, winning a one night stay for two at the Inn at Laurita Winery.
Last, but certainly not least, Christina Ruff, walked away with the third place prize of a $100 Laurita Gift Certificate and two free wine tastings.
All 10 amazing Idol Contest finalists also went home with Silver Club memberships from Laurita Winery.
The competition was fierce beginning with 32 contestants, with 10 reaching the finals — all eyes on the first place title. Each finalist sang one song of their choice and was judged by the Laurita Idol Contest judges. Laurita’s incredible judges included Steve Berger, Nicole Salerno and Victor Sevcenko. The winners were announced Thursday evening, November 7, at the Finals Finale. It was a tough decision as all performers were spectacular!
The evening closed with Frank Hughes singing one last song — a beautiful ending to a wonderful and exciting event at Laurita Winery.
Laurita’s next Idol competition will be in the Spring of 2014. Visit our website for upcoming events at this little slice of heaven located in central New Jersey.
