Warner Film Center wants to send you away

NEW CASTLE — The board of the Warner Film Center wants to send you away.

The non-profit organization is offering a chance to win three trips. They will be given away this summer.

According to John Meyers, vice president of the center, “these lavish vacations amount to over $5,000 in total value.”

The third-place winner will receive a three-night stay at a five-star resort in the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee near legendary Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Dollywood theme park. The Oct. 11, 12 and 13 excursion is during prime foliage time.

The second-place winner will spend Sept. 13, 14 and 15 in a five-star suite in Nashville, Tenn. The Music City resort is near Opryland and other major attractions.

The grand prize winner will receive a seven-night stay in a luxury suite at Florida’s Bonnet Creek Resort in Orlando from Aug. 23 to 29. The resort features deluxe amenities and is close to Disney and Universal theme parks.

All accommodations are one-bedroom suites, sleeping two, with a fold-out couch in the living room for two more.

The tickets are $10 each and only 1,000 will be printed.

Treasurer William Brown said the winners will be determined by the three-digit, evening drawing of the Pennsylvania Lottery for July 1, 2 and 3.

All proceeds go directly to the Warners’ film birthplace construction and development fund, he added.

Anyone interested in purchasing tickets can visit the news and events section of the Warner Film Center website, www.warnerfilmcenter.org, contact any member of the board of trustees, or call sweepstakes sales chairman Tim May at (724) 652-0875.
