United Way of Florence County to Hold Car Giveaway Event
The United Way of
Florence County (UWFC) will be holding the giveaway event for their 2015
“You’re In the Driver’s Seat” campaign on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. As
part of the driving theme for the 2015 campaign, the UWFC will be giving one
lucky donor a one-year lease on a brand new red Ford Fiesta. The car to be
given away was provided by Mike Reichenbach Ford Lincoln through a partnership
with the UWFC. The event will be held at the Mike Reichenbach Ford Lincoln
dealership at 600 North Coit Street in Florence.
To be eligible for the
drawing, an individual had to make a donation or a pledge to the United Way of
Florence County for at least $100. Each $100 donation equaled one entry into
the drawing and individuals were allowed multiple entries for every $100
donation or pledge they made.
To determine the
finalists for the giveaway event, ten names were drawn at random from the pool
of donors who had donated or pledged at least $100 or more by April 8, 2016.
These ten finalists will attend the giveaway event at Mike Reichenbach Ford
Lincoln where the ultimate winner of the car will be randomly determined live
at the event.
Along with the brand
new car, the UWFC will also be giving away three additional grand prizes to
donors who donated or pledged $100 or more on Thursday, May 12, 2016. These
prizes include a three-night stay at the Sea Crest Oceanfront Resort in Myrtle
Beach, a Coleman Road Trip Propane Grill, and a 46” HD Flat Screen TV with
Kinect and Xbox. The winners of these prizes will be drawn at random using the
same method as the car giveaway. The nine remaining finalists from the car
giveaway who did not win the car will be eligible for these prizes as well.
