GM to give away three cars at Blue Jays games this weekend
Toronto, Ontario – GM is giving away a new car at each of the three Blue Jays games in the “General Motors of Canada Father’s Day Sleepover Weekend,” June 13, 14 & 15.
Marc Comeau, Vice President Sales, Service and Marketing for GM of Canada said, “While the relationship with the Jays is new, we have been able to put together a great program for this weekend. The sleepover is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all fans to experience and we are thrilled to offer three vehicles for some lucky fans.”
The grand prize in this daily contest will be a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire GT Coupe or 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 Sedan. Three qualified semifinalists selected randomly from in-stadium balloting will be invited onto the field during the seventh inning in the three games between the Blue Jays and the Chicago Cubs. Each semifinalist will select a key, the holder of the key that
opens the driver’s door wins that car. Full contest rules are available at the three GM vehicle displays on the 100 Level at SkyDome.
This contest adds excitement to an already memorable weekend, as the Jays face the Cubs for the first time in club history. Approximately 300 dads and kids will sleep over on the playing field at SkyDome on Saturday night, after taking in a movie on Jumbotron, and getting a chance to see the game on Saturday and Sunday.
All fans in attendance will be winners, as GM will be distributing vouchers that entitle the holder to a $500 discount on the purchase of a new GM vehicle.
The proceeds from the ticket sales for the sleepover benefit the Jays Care Foundation. Special limited edition collectibles will also be given out during the series with the first 25,000 fans on Saturday receiving the Carlos Delgado Celebriduck. An equal number of Blue Jays Father’s Day ties will be distributed on Sunday.
GM has also purchased 10,000 tickets to be distributed to health care workers over the three-day series with the Cubs. GM salutes the fine efforts that our health care workers have made during this challenging time.
