Washington Trust’s I LUV RI Bracket Concludes

Clam Cakes are chosen as “Quintessential Rhode Island”

Westerly, Rhode Island... After 15 match-ups and more than 17,000 votes it all came down to Dels vs. Clam Cakes.

To celebrate March Madness, The Washington Trust Company turned its I LUV RI site into a campaign allowing Rhode Islanders to vote on what they felt was the most quintessential thing about the state. I Luv RI (http://www.iluvri.com) is a Facebook site run by The Washington Trust Company to celebrate everything about Rhode Island. Each day throughout March into early April, a new bracket vote took place between the over 33 thousand followers of the page. With local RI institutions like Del’s, Olneyville NY System, PawSox and more joining in on the fun, more than 17,000 people voted and named Clam Cakes the winner earlier this week.
