Sun of Italy launches contest, win a TV Appearance, Olive Oil for a Year, Dinner at La Scala

Sun of Italy, a Baltimore-based Italian food provider, has just launched an online contest inviting Baltimoreans to share their hometown pride online for a chance to win one of three great Charm City prizes. The contest has been designed to build local and regional awareness about the 100-year-old company, while encouraging city residents to share the reasons why they fell in love with Baltimore.  The company is a Baltimore original; a brand that has been run by five generations of the Pastore family for more than a century.

“Sun of Italy is a fifth-generation family business that has deep roots in, and appreciation for, the Baltimore community,” said Mike Pastore, vice president of Sun of Italy. “We started as a humble fruit and grocery stand at the entrance of Little Italy, and more than 100 years later, we’re still proud to call Charm City our home. Our goal with the BaltAmoré campaign is to reward our friends and neighbors for spreading the love and telling others why they adore this town as much as we do!”

Now, on to the contest:

To participate in the BaltAmoré contest, visit and share your love story for the city of Baltimore. Submissions will be accepted through February 28 and the winners will be announced on March 8. The top three BaltAmoré stories will be awarded one of the following prizes:
