ST. LOUISAN WINS AN ITALIAN CULINARY EXPERIENCE FOR TWO COURTESY OF PICCIONE PASTRY
Winner and Guest to Fly Southwest Airlines, Visit Mario Batali’s Eataly and Stay at the Hilton
Piccione Pastry, St. Louis’ premier Italian pastry shop, recently gifted an Italian culinary experience to one local cannoli lover. The winner received two round trip flights on Southwest Airlines, a two night stay at the upscale Hilton hotel in downtown Chicago and a loaded gift card for eats & gifts at Mario Batali’s nationally acclaimed Eataly Italian Marketplace.
Washington University employee, M.K. Sewell-Loftin, was just one of hundreds who entered the competition by joining Piccione Pastry’s Friends of the Flock loyalty program. She applied to be a member of the shop’s Friends of the Flock while enjoying her favorite sweet treat in-store – a cookie dough cannoli filled with Piccione’s signature cream.
“I have never visited Chicago,” said M.K. Sewell-Loftin, the Piccione Pastry Italian Culinary Experience winner. “Thanks to Piccione Pastry’s generosity I can explore the city! I’m incredibly excited to have the complete Italian culinary experience.”
Sewell-Loftin will travel to Chicago with a guest this spring. She shared that she has already reviewed the website, mapped out her trip and started a wish list for eats and gifts at Eataly.
“We’re thrilled to gift unique experiences to our Flock (customers), said Sandia Hoormann, Piccione Pastry Chef. “The excitement doesn’t end here! We’re excited to announce that every month we will select a random Friend of the Flock member to receive a gift!”
