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.
