AnnArbor.com has announced the winners in the Big Ticket Giveaway.
The giveaway, celebrating the launch of AnnArbor.com's new Entertainment and Events Calendar pages, offered entrants a chance to win tickets to some of the top attractions at this year's Summer Festival.
Laurie Carpenter of Ann Arbor was the grand prize winner. She wins a package worth almost $500, encompassing two tickets each to Ira Glass, the Moth Mainstage, Rufus Wainwright, the Capitol Steps and Circa.
Carpenter, a Michigan native who earned her MSW from the University of Michigan in 2005, heard about the contest on Facebook and wrote in an email that she is particularly looking forward to the Rufus Wainwright concert. An Ann Arbor resident for about five years, she said the Summer Festival's Top of the Park events are always a favorite.
