Leo Politi Lithograph Raffle

In conjunction with the Bunker Hill theme of this year’s Holiday Lamplight Celebration we are raffling off two framed Leo Politi lithographs. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased in the gift shop leading up to Lamplight and during the event.

Tickets are 1 for $5 or 3 for $12

Leo Politi was born in Fresno, California in 1908. At age 6, he and his family moved to Italy where he began his art training at the Royal Palace of Monza. He returned to Fresno and launched his literary career in 1938 with “Little Pancho”. In 1950 he was honored with the Caldecott Medal for “the nation’s most distinguished children’s picture book” for “Song of the Swallows”. Over the years he wrote and illustrated 20+ children’s book as well as “Bunker Hill, Los Angeles”.

Congratulations to our winners Janetta & Moira!
