Chevrolet Silverado Giveaway at Nimnicht Chevrolet in Jacksonville, FL
The Blood Alliance along with Nimnicht Chevrolet, congratulates Jerry Figueroa, 54, from Jacksonville who recently won a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, compliments of Nimnicht Chevrolet! Figueroa beat out 20 finalists chosen from more than 41,000 other donors for the grand prize.
The truck promotion was open to all who registered to donate blood with The Blood Alliance from August 12, 2013 through to January 11, 2014. "We saw more than 41,000 donors during the five-month promotion, and shortages were avoided during critical holiday periods," continued Dr. Berthol, the Blood Alliance's Medical Director. "The Nimnicht family truly understands the importance of our constant need for the gift of life and have been an outstanding community partner over the past two years." Additionally, Nimnicht Buick GMC partnered with the Blood Alliance in 2013, and gave away a new 2013 Buick Verano that year.
Earlier this month, when Jerry Figueroa was announced as the winner, he didn't waste any time making some decisions. Instead of selling his 1996 GMC Sonoma, he decided to donate it to a family acquaintance. This young man was currently driving his family around in a very old vehicle, that no longer worked reliably and properly. Reportedly the car was so unreliable, he had to commute to work on a bicycle most of the time. Before Figueroa hands over the GMC Sonoma to his family friend, he will make all the necessary repairs and service guaranteeing it's in the best condition possible in order to pay it forward.
From all of us at Nimnicht Chevrolet, we want to thank all the donors for participating, and donating their time for a wonderful cause. We were proud to partner with The Blood Alliance to reward a very deserving winner!
