Press Release (ePRNews.com) - GRAVETTE, Ark. - Jan 31, 2017 - The 2016 Corvette Dream Giveaway, a nationwide drawing sponsored by New Beginning Children’s Homes, ended on December 28th, 2016. Sixty-nine year old John Wilson, from Louisiana, was the grand-prize winner.
Mr. Wilson was awarded two high-horsepower Corvette convertibles — a 425hp 1965 Corvette Sting Ray and an 800hp 2016 Lingenfelter Signature Edition Corvette Z06. The grand-prize also included $50,000 towards the prize taxes.
Mr. Wilson, a long-time supporter of Dream Giveaway promotions, made a $50 donation on August 19, 2016, and split his money across two giveaways. That strategy proved to be a smart one. “Even if I didn’t win, I knew my money would be going to help some great causes,” he said. “I feel fantastic about helping the charities involved.”
On Monday, January 16, 2017, he received the news via telephone that he had won the 2016 Corvette Dream Giveaway. “I was completely shocked,” he said. “Immediately an image of both Corvettes popped into my head. I tend to be a GM guy and I love Corvettes. When I told my friends and family, they couldn’t believe it either.”
Mr. Wilson is the Director of Support Services at the Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans. In his free time he enjoys working on the landscaping at his home and attending local car shows hosted by antique car clubs.
Mr. Wilson will attend the award ceremony in Clearwater, Florida, on February 3, 2017.
“It happened to me and it can happen to you!” he said.
