Audi winner feels wheely good

Su Tummala enjoys sitting in her car

By Faye Lippitt

A woman who won a luxury car in a raffle got the thrilling news while on a trip to the United States.

Su Tammala was this year’s winner of the Rotary Sunrise 2017 Audi TT.

According to Su, she was in a mall in Philadelphia when Rotarian Tony Catalanotto called to tell her the good news and started squealing in shock, much to the surprise of fellow shoppers.

Su was with her mother, a Rotarian from Hyderabad, India, when she purchased the five tickets for $100. She said she kicked herself, thinking she should have picked them from several books. She’s now glad that she didn’t.

Su, who works for Hampson & Co., drove off with a wave and a smile in her Audi Tuesday afternoon from Rotary Sponsor Arch Automotive’s Audi storefront in Camana Bay.

Second place winner of a flight for two anywhere in continental U.S. that Delta flies is Ranfor Welcome, also present on Tuesday. He said he purchases tickets every year, but this time when he purchased his three tickets for $65 at A.L. Thompson’s, he said: “Will you sell me the winning ticket?” It worked. Ranfor is an industrial plumber who has lived in Cayman for 14 years.

Kara Phillips, who works for Phoenix Construction, was third place winner of $1,000 of gas from Walkers Road Rubis, Eastern Avenue Rubis and Savannah Rubis.

Fourth place winner of $500 of gas from these Rubis sponsors was Ray Northover.

Rotary Sunrise thanks its sponsors Arch Automotive, Delta Airlines, Rubis and Britcay. Money raised goes to two dozen charities on island.
