Listeners may participate in one or multiply means of entry to be entered into the contest. All those who enter the Contest are entering to be one of ten qualifiers. A total of ten qualifiers will be present the day of the giveaway for a chance to win the grand prize: a two year lease on a 2018 Ford Escape from LaFontaine Ford. The day of the Grand Prize drawing, 10 cars will be lined up. In the trunk of each car will be a prize. Nine of the ten trunks will contain a “consolation” prize, valued at no more than $250 (prizes will vary). One of the ten trunks will contain the Grand Prize: a key that unlocks a car, which represents the Grand Prize lease.
5. Drawing Winner: Thursday, September 14th, 10 qualifiers will be randomly drawn from all methods of entry and will be notified of their qualification in participating in the Grand Prize Drawing. Qualifiers will be notified that they must be present at LaFontaine Ford (5103 S Cedar St, Lansing, MI 48911) on Saturday, September 15th at Time TBD to participate in the Grand Prize Drawing. As qualifiers arrive, they will be given a number that coordinates with when they arrived (the first qualifier will receive the number 1, the second will receive the number 2, etc.). This number is only used as representative of the person, it does not designate the order in which qualifiers participate in the contest. Once all 10 qualifiers have arrived and been given a number, the numbers will be placed into a box/bag/bowl and mixed up. A representative will then randomly select numbers, this determines the order that the qualifiers get to choose which car they think contains the key to unlock the car and win the Grand Prize. In the order they’re randomly selected, qualifiers will choose a car. Once all qualifiers have selected a car, they will be instructed to open the trunk and reveal their prize. The qualifiers that opens the trunk that contains a car key will be determined the winner of the Grand Prize; a two year lease of a 2018 Ford Escape from LaFontaine Ford (2 year lease w/ 10,000 miles per year [25 cents will be charged to the winner for any overage]).
Winner status and/or prize is non-transferable. Winner is responsible for any mileage overage. Winner must also be approved for top tier credit through Ford Motor Credit. Winner is solely responsible for maintaining proper insurance, title, and plate fees for the vehicle. Winner may opt to choose the cash value of the prize instead of the lease of the vehicle. The winner would then receive $3,500 (value of the prize) instead of the lease. Winner is responsible for any and all applicable taxes for the lease or the cash prize.
6. In consideration of the receipt of the Prize, the winner agrees to be solely responsible for any and all taxes and/or other fees, including, but not limited to, any federal state or local income taxes, that are or may become payable as a result of participating in the Contest and/or receipt of the Prize.
