Edgartown Hotel Video Contest Winner!

Drum roll, please! The winner of our 2013 summer video contest is. . . Sheila DiTocco!

Sheila won a four-night stay at a New Hampshire ski resort. It was a tough call (we got a number of creative entries), but Sheila charmed us with photos of her stuffed gorilla, Bam, experiencing locations all over the island. And, we do mean ALL over. Check out the delightful video here.

Sheila – who was staying with us for her 25th anniversary when she shot all the photos that comprise the video – shared a little bit of Bam’s story with us. “Bam is well loved. She was originally given to my husband the first year we were married. He injured his back at work and I bought her to cheer him up. At that time she was bright white and clean. When we had children she became even more well loved. My husband would frequently sneak her into my suitcase when I went on business trips and when we went on vacation.

She has been to Bermuda, the Bahamas, Canada, all of the New England states, Georgia, Virginia, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and, of course, Martha’s Vineyard a number of times. This is her first starring role. She has had pictures taken before but has never been in a video.”

We are so glad she is now! Congratulations Sheila (and Bam).
