Little did loyal Christenson Chevrolet customer Joseph Boton know when he was having the oil changed and brakes fixed on his 2008 Chevy last Friday morning that he would win two Chicago Blackhawks tickets at the Highland dealership’s drawing that afternoon.
Boton, of Munster, gave the tickets to his daughter, a huge Blackhawks’ fan. She is very excited about attending the game and will bring a fellow fan and close friend along, he said.
“It was wonderful,” Boton said. “She can’t wait to go.”
Boton said he has never won anything much before.
“We’ve been Chevy customers for a long time,” Boton said.
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 six weeks. The final drawing for the Chevy Cruze will be May 1.
Christenson owner Milford Christenson said the Blackhawks tickets are a great addition.
“The team does well and tickets are in high demand,” Christenson said. “So it is fun to give a pair away each year. Everyone here at the dealership is excited about the Cruze giveaway. The response from the community is phenomenal. It is a great way to show our appreciation for their trust in us for the past 63 years and for making us the #1 Chevy dealer in all of Indiana again last month.”
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 Christenson Chevrolet, participating dealerships are: Smith Chevrolet of Hammond, who drew the first week’s winner; Arnell Chevrolet; Harbor Chevrolet; Smith Chevrolet of Lowell; Mike Anderson Chevrolet; Team Chevrolet, and Wiers Chevrolet.
