Right after getting married last Fall, North Ender Laurie Strazzullo went on the TV game show, The Price is Right and won a brand new car! The big news was confidential until the show aired on January 5th.
Joined in the audience by husband and lifelong North End resident, Louis Strazzullo, the couple wore t-shirts saying “To Do List: (1) Get Married, (2) Go On The Price is Right and (3) Honeymoon.”
Newlywed Laurie was selected from the hundreds in the audience and made it up to the main stage with host Drew Carey to play “10 Chances.” In the game, she had to guess the prices of three items, a waffle maker, laptop computer and a Ford Fiesta car.
Cheering husband, Louis Strazzullo, helped out by signing numbers to Laurie during the game which came down to the very last chance.
In the 10th chance, Laurie wrote down the correct price of $17,580 to win the new car!
Here are some screenshots from the show, that can be viewed on the CBS website at minute 22:00 in the online video (after a commercial).

oh c’mon. she just needs to get a fraudulent handicap placecard, get the city to put in a handicap space in front your residence, use a cone to save it whenever you move your car, and vandalize the car of anyone that moves the cone to park in it. isn’t that they way it works in the north end…at least for the old timers? i see it all the time.
