Marquette, MI- June 27th 2017- It was a great night at River Rock Lanes and Banquet Center for the Mow Like A Pro Giveaway. We were joined by Four Seasons Small Engine and Altoz, along with hundreds of our many listeners for the party of the year.
We must have gotten thousands of people who entered in this contest and we sent out hundreds of invitations. It was great to see so many people come out to the party with their guests all hoping to win the $10,853 Altoz Zero Turn Riding Mower. This lawnmower came packed with high performance parts to make mowing the lawn a breeze. The unique combination of the large engines, Hydro-Gear transmissions, and 24” tires not only make the XP450Z a step above the competition, but also make this mower fast! The line out the door seemed endless! Congratulations to James Snyder of Ishpeming. He was the big winner of the night and took home this beast of a lawn mower.
What a party! Nancy and Amy were at the door ready to greet you while Mike and Walt emceed the night for everybody. After everyone was seated it was time to give away some door prizes. They began by thanking all the guests, sponsors, and people involved in making the contest such a success. After it was time to hand out some of our many great door prizes. Free prizes including local landscape photography from Saddleback Photo and Tadych’s Econo Foods gift certificates were handed out before breaking for dinner.
WFXD’s Eric Scott released tables one by one to get there gourmet meal from Mama Russo’s. The spread was breathtaking, with Yooper Beer Brats and Mama Russo’s famous salads being served. Everyone had full bellies and big smiles after getting as much as they could handle. Walt drew more raffle tickets for more door prizes while Mike would call out raffle tickets to be a finalist. Each finalist had to go up to the front table to grab an envelope with one of the station’s logo on the front. Every envelope contained a big prize but only one had the GRAND PRIZE – the Altoz Zero Turn Riding Mower from Four Seasons Small Engine and Altoz Precision Mowers.
To build more suspense, Major Discount took the mic to tell everyone about our next giveaway, the $7,000 Storage Building of Your Dreams Giveaway from Premium Pole Buildings and Storage Sheds. People couldn’t wait to get in on that prize!
At the end of it all, the finalists opened their envelopes together revealing James Snyder was our big winner and went home with a brand new Altoz Zero Turn Riding Mower. Congratulations James. Kathy Pearce and Denise Platteborze went home with a Swick Golden Star gift certificate. Gerri Erickson got himself a car detail service from Auto Armor.
