MAPLEWOOD, NJ – October 28, 2015 – Two individuals each won a new car or truck at a Sweepstakes Event held on Thursday, October 8 at Forsgate Country Club. The Valerie Fund and dealers participating in the New Jersey Auto Retailers Unite campaign hosted an exciting event filled with food, music and anticipation as the 86 finalists present were narrowed down to the final two winners.
Throughout the evening groups of names were eliminated, until only 10 finalists remained. The final 10 were interviewed about where they obtained their voucher and which car they would choose if they were one of the final two winners.
As the evening came to a close, a Valerie Fund child pulled two names. The two winners will have the opportunity to chose the vehicle they want (up to a value of $33,000) as a prize from among the 144 participating dealerships. The other 84 finalists also received consolation prizes.
The two Grand Prize Winners were:
• Mario Lopez, who received his winning voucher from Autosport Honda in Bridgewater
• Gail Scheeler, who received her winning voucher from Schumacher Chevrolet in Little Falls
More than 200 dealerships participated in the New Jersey Auto Retailers Unite campaign over the past two years. The group is projected to raise more than $1.2 million for New Jersey children with cancer and blood disorders served by The Valerie Fund over the past two years.Back to News Main Page
