Joliet Man Wins Toyota Prius at Chicago Auto Show
Sunday, February 20, 2011
Justin McNally, a 27-year-old resident of Joliet, has won a 2011 Toyota Prius, courtesy of the Chicagoland Toyota Dealers.
"The Toyota 2011 Chicago Auto Show Prius Giveaway" was conducted on the dealers' Facebook page - www.facebook.com/chicagolandtoyotadealers, a site that informs visitors of Chicagoland Toyota Dealer promotions, contests and events throughout the area.
The 30 dealers who comprise the Chicagoland Toyota Dealers sponsored the online contest in January and February, with 10 selected semi-finalists invited to attend today's final day of the Chicago Auto Show. This morning, the semi-finalists met at the Toyota exhibit and were provided identical envelopes. McNally's envelope contained the picture of a Prius, making him the grand prize winner.
Nearly 3,000 contest entries were posted on the Facebook page this year. The contest was limited to Chicagoland residents, many of whom took the opportunity to re-enter on multiple occasions.
