If you’re going to San Francisco………please do the lotto for me!
That could have ben the cry for Donegal folk Pearl Bustard, Martina Kelly, William Lucas and Francis O’Gorman who recently travelled with their guests to San Francisco thanks to the National Lottery’s Winning Streak game.
A total of 44 lucky Winning Streak TV Gameshow winners from all over Ireland and their 44 guests jetted off to San Francisco for a six day luxury break on Friday 22 August 2014 with €2,500 spending money in their pockets.
The excited winners won the prize on the National Lottery’s Winning Streak TV Gameshow during the January – May season. Gameshow host Marty Whelan accompanied the winners on their fun filled trip of a lifetime. For many winners, it was their first visit to the USA.
2FM’s Rick O’Shea Show broadcast live from San Francisco on Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 August 2014 and trip winners were involved in these broadcasts.
“Here at the National Lottery we’re delighted to make dreams come true for 44 winners and their guests by sending them on a trip of a lifetime to San Francisco,” said Dermot Griffin, Chief Executive, National Lottery.
Once in San Francisco, the group were transported by coach to the luxurious Fairmont Hotel which in recent times hosted US President Barack Obama.
On Sunday evening, the winners enjoyed a delicious gala dinner at the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco Bay. The restaurant boasts incredible views of the famous Golden Gate Bridge.
The group also visited the Rams Gate Winery in Sonoma where they sampled some of the regions finest wines. The winners returned to Dublin on Thursday 28 August 2014.
