Check out the winner of our KISS SWEEPSTAKES! Amazing!

Celebrating KISS’s final and 50th anniversary tour in 2019, the Virgin Wines Club held a sweepstakes for two lucky people to get two VIP tickets to see KISS perform, meet them and have their picture taken in the VIP lounge. Out of the thousands who entered, we randomly drew Ian’s name from the Minneapolis area. Little did anyone know that our winner’s life dream was to meet Gene Simmons, his soul brother as he called him.

You see, the winner Ian lives, eats and breathes all things KISS, is a Gene Simmons impersonator doing shows for schools, has the full Gene Simmons costume and as Ian told us – ‘I have Down’s Syndrome and I am very independent. I do a very good Gene Simmons impersonation, he is my hero. I am in a rock band, and we do Kiss songs. It’s my biggest dream to meet Kiss.’ Everyone was so thrilled that such a delightful young man won his life’s dream, even his local TV station KARE11 did a special on Ian going to the big event. Magic and dreams do come true! Rock on Ian!!!
