Keith Persson not only enjoyed the Taste of Annandale on April 29, he ended up winning the framed Wayne Rooney shirt raffled off by RAMP Optimal Performance & Wellness.
Rooney was one of the top football stars in England and is the current manager of DC United. RAMP owner Pablo Amaya, a DC United assistant coach, organized the raffle to benefit the Annandale Volunteer Fire Department.
Persson said he plans to become a DC United fan while staying loyal to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Persson and his wife Emily have lived in Annandale for 15 years. “We love it here,” said Emily. “It’s a fantastic community with a wide range of cultures.”
