Winner claims tickets to culinary experience

Eric Masse, computer support specialist in Information Technology Services, won Thursday’s DailyNews quiz and its prize of two tickets to Gourmet Gardens, the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation’s May 1 benefit gala.

Masse’s entry was drawn from the 63 per cent of responses which correctly identified the Windsor pronunciation of all these city street names: Goyeau is GOY-o (92% of answers), Langlois is LANG-loise (85%), Ouellette is OH-let (75%), Pelissier is PELL-ish-er (88%), and of course Pierre is PEER-ee (92%).

Mike Fisher, manager of web services and systems support in IT Services, donated the tickets, worth $150 each.

If you didn’t win, never fear: the foundation still has tickets available for purchase, promising:

  • a four-course culinary experience by Chef Don Kumarsinghe, paired with local wines and beers;
  • the jazz stylings of the Coffee House Combo;
  • a Dream Raffle featuring prize packages for Mother’s Day, spring, and summer; and
  • its venue at Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery transformed into a magical spring garden.

The proceeds benefit the “Children, Youth, and Families, Strength for Today, Opportunities for Tomorrow” campaign, which supports programs confronting challenges faced by local families and youth.
