With Canyon Media DJs from Planet 105.1, 99.9 KONY Country95.9 the Hawk and Sunny 101.5 on hand to rev up the crowd, Stephen Wade Chevrolet was full of smiling hopefuls Saturday morning for the second giveaway party for this year’s “$15k in 15 days” annual summer sale.

Planet 105.1’s Matt Wilber emceed the event and had the whole room laughing as Sunny 101.5’s Bill Logan helped him with the reverse drawing for this week’s $5,000 prize.

Estrada looked surprised and smiled as he heard it called. Even the runner-up, along with many in the crowd, appeared happy to see him win.

Stephen Wade Auto Center’s marketing manager Jamie Bahlmann was there to present Estrada with his prize as he told the crowd he didn’t know what he wanted to do with the money yet. Although he did tell Wilber he wouldn’t be going to Mesquite.

“Not Mesquite. I will be paying my bills,” Estrada said laughing.

A second drawing was held after Estrada’s presentation for a $1,500 gift certificate to Ashley Home Store. Every person that qualified walked away with at least some type of prize.

The Stephen Wade “Red Tag” sales event continues with red-hot deals on almost every vehicle in their inventory which can also be found online, anytime. Plus, $5,000 is still up for grabs until the end of the month as their “$15k in 15 days” continues this Saturday.
