Manchester United Trip Winner Drawn at NYSWYSA State Cup

MU Trip winner, Julia Landry, of Watkins Glen NY, shows the winning ticket to NYSWYSA office manager, Dan Watson.
Thanks to the generosity of AIG Insurance and NY West’s insurance provider, Pullen Insurance, one lucky NY West member will be taking a trip to to watch a Manchester United game in person at Old Trafford, England in 2009.  The winning ticket stub was drawn at the 2008 State Cup event held May 30-June 1 at SUNY Cortland.  Fifth grader Isabella Stephan, of Clarence, NY , drew the winning ticket from a container of about 7,000 entries.  When contacted by phone and notified of the good fortune in the drawing, Mrs. Landry was understandably excited as was her son, Ian Anderson.  But it wasn’t the only thrill of the day.  Later on, the Syracuse FC  Boys team, for which Ian plays, laid claim to the hotly contested U15 Boys State Cup championship at SUNY Cortland.  Syracuse Futbol Club was the club involved in the sale of the winning ticket, as part of a fund raising event organized by NY West Youth Soccer Association.
