Laurita Winery Announces Laurita Idol Contest Winner!
November 3, 2011 – After truly talented performers sang their hearts out over the past five weeks at the American Idol Contest – Laurita Winery Style, we are proud to announce that Dawn Swann of Philadelphia, PA took home the 1st place grand prize of $1000.00!
Coming in a close second was the talented Karly Coleman of Jackson, NJ, winning a one night stay for two at the Inn at Laurita Winery.
Last, but certainly not least, Match 4 — a female barbershop quartet — walked away with the third place prize of a $100 Laurita Gift Certificate and two free wine tastings.
All three Idol Contest winners will be featured as musical guests at an upcoming Laurita Winery entertainment event (date to be announced).
The competition was fierce beginning with 32 contestants, with 11 reaching the finals — all eyes on the first place title. Each finalist sang two songs of their choice and was judged by the American Idol Contest judges and the audience. The winners were announced Thursday evening at the Finals Finale. It was a tough decision — all performers gave it their everything and were spectacular!
The evening closed with Dawn Swann singing one last song — a beautiful ending to a wonderful and exciting event at Laurita Winery.
Congratulations to all our Idol winners and participants!
