The Villages Travel & Tour gives away a trip of a lifetime during the 11th Annual Golf Festival


The Villages, FL. 3-30-17—In association with Globus Family of Brands and Avalon Waterways, The Villages Travel & Tour presented Pat Santulli with a trip of a lifetime.  A 7 night River Cruise for 2 on Avalon Waterways departing from Paris and arriving on the beaches of Normandy.

"I retired from Apple a year and a half ago and finally took up golf.....and many of my friends will tell you that it is true, I took up golf.  I really don't play very well.  However, I have always gone to the Golf Festival because I like the excitement that is in the air during the two days.  I always manage to buy some clothes, shoes, food. I can't believe they gave away a trip like this. 

I'm so excited about the Avalon Waterways River Cruise out of Paris.  A river cruise has always been on my bucket list.  You can only see so much of the Caribbean", Pat exclaimed!
