“The WIX Filters Fishing with Ryan Sweepstakes entry period confirmed what we already knew – Ryan Newman has possibly the most passionate fans of any driver in NASCAR,” said Mike Harvey, brand manager for WIX Filters. “We are excited to reward one of those fans, Laurel Keating, with the unique opportunity to meet Ryan and fish with him in his charity tournament.”
The WIX Filters Fishing with Ryan Sweepstakes grand prize includes a trip for two to Charlotte, including airfare and hotel accommodations for two nights, tickets to the 7th Annual Ryan Newman Foundation 2011 Dinner and Auction on December 9, an hour fishing with Newman during the 7th Annual Ryan Newman Foundation Fishing Tournament on December 10, a Nitro Z-7 bass boat with trailer with an approximate retail value of $23,995, a $1,000 Bass Pro Shops gift card and a $500 travel stipend for food and other expenses.
“I am so excited and grateful to WIX Filters for winning this sweepstakes,” said Keating, whose small village in south-central British Columbia is surrounded by lakes and wildlife. “My husband and I both love the outdoors, fishing and camping with our family; we also love our dog and two cats and we are honored to participate in an event that supports Ryan Newman’s Foundation.”
The Ryan Newman Foundation’s mission is to educate and encourage people to spay/neuter their pets and to adopt dogs and cats from animal shelters; to educate children and adults about the importance of conservation so the beauty of the great outdoors can be appreciated by future generations; and to provide college scholarship funding through the Rich Vogler Scholarship program to students interested in auto racing careers.
