Drumroll Please … Family Vacation Photo Contest Winner!

The first thing I’ll say is wow, what a contest! I’m blown away by the enthusiasm of the participants and their fans. We’ve spent the afternoon counting votes for the two leading families, #38 and #29 and quite simply, it’s close, very close. Each family got nearly 1000 votes!

Given our two-hour dose of comment chaos on Thursday night and the close number of votes, I decided to approach Casa Cornacchi today and asked Giacomo, the General Manager, if he would be willing to extend two week-long stays so each family would win a free stay in Italy.

As luck would have it, Casa Cornacchi is one of my original hotel partners in Italy and a good friend to Ciao Bambino. He said yes!  The same rules apply for each family — we’ll reach out to each family with details. Grazie Giacomo! Here’s the link to Casa Cornacchi’s Facebook page if anyone wants to stay in touch with this fantastic accommodation in Tuscany.

In the meantime, I know I’ll be toasting the winning families tonight. Congratulations!

Note: We’re going to award the GPS from Auto Europe to the family with the 3rd highest votes. We are busy crunching numbers and will announce that later in the weekend.

  2. Thank you Ciao Bambino. I have offered my thanks and appreciation to Casa Cornacchi for this amazing gift they have given to you, and to us. Thank you for their Facebook page contact. We look forward to meeting them. All the best.

  3. Thank you, Ciao Bambino, and many thanks to Giacomo! I entered this contest with no expectations; I just thought it would be fun. I still cannot believe that my photo brought in over 1,000 votes and that we actually won something. This is going to be the trip of a lifetime for my family and me! Thanks again!

  4. Even though the families are very cute in the photos, you can’t possibly think this was anything more than a popularity contest. I hope you will learn from this for future contests as it’s not necessarily your fault. Well, except for encouraging it. And no I did not submit a photo, so I am not a disgruntled loser.

  5. Wow! Kudos Ciao Bambino for doing a fantastic thing for both families. I indeed enjoyed looking at all the photos and inspiring my friends and faimly to vote. It is nice to see honor appear in the unlikeliest of places. I will visit Ciao Bambino when deciding to travel!

  6. Thank you Caio Bambino and Giacomo. This is my only granddaughter, and she is our miracle baby. It took my daughter many years to try to have a baby.
    I am so happy for them. I am also so happy for the other family also.
    I just wanted you to know that alot of our friends will be using your company. They also said what a nice thing you have done to both families.
    God Bless.
