Longtime Mike Anderson Chevrolet customer Emma Greenwood was the lucky winner of Friday’s Chicago Blackhawk ticket drawing. Her niece, a huge Blackhawks fan was even luckier, because Greenwood gave her the tickets to use for Sunday’s game.
“She was at the game and I watched from home,” Greenwood said. “I was really disappointed they didn’t win.”
Greenwood, a Hobart resident and Chevy customer since 1975, was excited about winning.
“I was really in shock,” Greenwood said. “I have never won anything like that before. My niece was so excited when I gave her the tickets.”
Greenwood said if she is “blessed to win the car” she will either give it to her husband or her son.
“He needs a new car and I have a 2010 Equinox,” Greenwood said. “I prefer the SUV.”
Each year the Northwest Indiana Chevy dealerships give their valued customers a chance to win a Chevy Cruze. This year they are doing more—each of the eight dealerships is drawing a lucky winner to receive two Chicago Blackhawks tickets. The drawings are being held one at a time for the next five weeks. The final drawing for the Chevy Cruze will be May 1.
Al Kuchar, General Manager at Mike Anderson Chevrolet, is ethused about the contest.
“Drawing it was great,” Kuchar said. “I am glad that a long-time customer won. It was exciting for her.”
Mike Anderson Chevrolet is a three-time GM Dealer of the Year recipient.
“That we are the dealer of the year is a testament to our continued customer satisfaction,” Kuchar said. “We have over 700 vehicles on the grounds. If you can’t find it here GM doesn’t make it.”
The Chevy Cruze is an upgrade from the previous Chevy Cobalt models. The Cruze is bigger with added luxury. The main appeal of the Cruze is the excellent gas mileage. It can get up to 46 MPG on the highway, an important feature as gas prices continue to rise. A great family sedan, the Cruze has a five star safety rating.
In addition to Mike Anderson Chevrolet, participating dealerships are: Smith Chevrolet of Hammond, who drew the first week’s winner; Arnell Chevrolet; Harbor Chevrolet; Smith Chevrolet of Lowell; Christenson Chevrolet; Team Chevrolet, and Wiers Chevrolet.
