Red Carpet Evening for Sweepstakes Winners

Two lucky Newseum fans got the red carpet treatment at the Oct. 28 premiere of National Geographic Channel's "Killing Kennedy." Judith Bellas of Burke, Va., was selected as the grand-prize winner of the Newseum's "JFK's DC Sweepstakes," which included two tickets to the premiere of the highly anticipated film about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Bellas and her husband, James McLaughlin, watched the film in the Newseum's Annenberg Theater along with celebrity guests, including stars Rob Lowe, Michelle Trachtenberg and Will Rothhaar; "Killing Kennedy" author and Fox News host Bill O'Reilly; and the film's cast, writer and director.

"We had a wonderful time!" Bellas said.

The sweepstakes prize package also includes a VIP tour of the Newseum's JFK exhibits; two nights at the Monaco Washington, DC; tickets to other top attractions in the nation's capital, including the National Building Museum, International Spy Museum and Madame Tussauds; and tickets for city tours with Big Bus Tours, Bike and Roll and Washington Walks.
