Deborah Jackson is one lucky gal. All she did was purchased a complete set of tires between April 1st and June 30th from an authorized Hankook retailer, and was entered into the Hankook Tire’s baseball-themed Great Catch Chevrolet Camaro Giveaway and won the grand prize of a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro.
Jackson is a retired machine operator, and she thought that the phone call that she received was a pranked phone call. Jackson recalls asking repeatedly if the whole thing was a joke, but was reassured she had won. She says winning the Camaro is “a gift from God.”
Soo Il Lee, president of Hankook Tire America Corp. said, “The Great Catch Giveaway program was designed to give back to those who purchased tires through the rebates, and give everyone a chance to win through the Camaro Giveaway. No purchase was necessary for the drawing – it worked out as a great way to build awareness for Hankook and expose our brand to a larger audience.”
Hankook Tire purchased the car from Penske Chevrolet of Cerritos, Calif. after Jackson picked out the color she wanted, part of the well known Penske Group. To outfit the Camaro, Hankook provided a new set of its Ventus V12 evo tires, offering the ultimate driving experience for Jackson.
I thought that was cute, and even though I had to strain my eyes to see the photos clearly, it’s extremely apparent that she appreciated it greatly. It’s always great to see big companies like Hankook Tire give back to those who need a new car. Now I just hope that Deborah doesn’t let anyone borrow her new vehicle, cause if she does, it may be a contender for wreckedexotics.com, even though a Camaro isn’t an exotic vehicle. I guess Deborah rolled off the lot, blasting “My Camaro” by Young Jeezy…
