The Healdsburg Jazz Festival launches another raffle, this time for a dream.
Jazzoom! A Vespa S50 four-stroke, four-valve motor scooter.
The styling of the Vespa S traces its origins back to legendary models of the 1970s, like the 50 Special and the Vespa Primavera. With its clean, essential lines, the Vespa S offers a minimalist version. The rectangular headlight and the front shield’s uncluttered surface and minimal thickness are powerful design features. The 4 valve engine has more power and improved fuel efficiency, rated at 90 mpg. (Vespa generously donated by Revolution Moto, Santa Rosa.)
Raffle tickets are only $20 each. You can always get a raffle ticket at the Levin & Co. bookstore (306 Center Street, Healdsburg), and by phone at 707-433-4633. You can even go by Revolution Moto (518 College Avenue, Santa Rosa), check out similar motor scooter models, and pick up your raffle ticket there. (Sorry, no online sales.)
From Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday; to both Michael Caine (1966) and Jude Law (2004) in Alfie, the Vespa makes cameo appearances with important actors throughout the history of film. These are captured in Vespa in the movies at Pontedera’s Vespa Museum.
All proceeds benefit the Healdsburg Jazz Festival and its year-round arts and education programs.
All raffle tickets $20 each, only 600 available. Tickets can be purchased at select Jazzoom! jazz events, Levin & Co., or by phone at the Healdsburg Jazz Festival office, (707) 433- 4633. Drawing will be held after all 600 tickets are sold.
