And the Kihnes are off

KPLU Contest Winners

Earlier this afternoon, JazzFest contest winners Larry and Sabrina Kihne took off from Kenmore Air’s Lake Union terminal.

“This is already a fantastic weekend,” Sabrina told me as she smiled at the seaplanes lining the dock. “I don’t normally call him at work. But when I found out we won, I called him right away.”

Earlier this June, Kenmore Air partnered with KPLU 88.5 to offer one lucky winner and their guest a trip to Victoria, BC for the 29th Annual TD Victoria International JazzFest.

The entire giveaway included:

Tickets to see Herbie Hancock at the Royal Theatre on Saturday, June 29, 7:30 p.m.

Roundtrip flights for two on Kenmore Air between Seattle’s Lake Union and Victoria’s Inner Harbour.

Two nights at the four-star Hotel Grand Pacific located Harbourfront in downtown Victoria (evenings of June 28 and 29)

Admission to the Royal BC Museum including their current exhibit, “Race to the End of the Earth.”

We’re excited to be partnered with KPLU – one of the most popular public radio stations in the nation. Their mission is simple – deliver music and stories you’ll remember.

How do they do it? By providing Western Washington, southern British Columbia and online listeners worldwide with awesome content: award-winning local and NPR news, jazz, blues, unique commentaries, live studio sessions and thought-provoking special series.

Do you also want to enjoy a little jazz this weekend? KPLU’s full-time jazz webstream – Jazz24 – can be heard on the station’s HD2 channel all day long.

    Just back from the trip. Victoria was charming, Herbie Hancock was legendary, The Hotel Grand Pacific could not have been more comfortable and the Kenmore Air flights to and from Victoria were so pretty and exciting. We had such a wonderful trip and cannot thank all of the sponsors enough. My wish for everyone is a weekend to remember just like this !

      I’m so glad you had fun Sabrina! It was such a blast to see you guys off. I can’t wait to see you both in the air with Kenmore again soon, maybe on a trip back to Victoria…
