Great car giveaway a winner for everyone


The first drawing for the second annual South Lake Tahoe Rotary Club Great Car Sweepstakes took place April 4 at the service club’s regular meeting. Twenty-five names were drawn by the Rev. John Grace and those names will become the semi-finalists for the grand prize of a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited or $25,000 cash, the choice of the winner.

Each of the semi-finalists have been notified by telephone as well as by letter. They will be the guests of the South Lake Tahoe Rotary Club for dinner at the April 11 meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at Harrah’s Special Events Center. At approximately 8 p.m. each of the semi-finalists will draw a set of keys in the same order that their names were drawn. Each will be entitled to try their key in the door of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. The key that opens the car will be declared the grand prize winner.

The 25 semi-finalists are Robert Cristando, Susan Middleton, Lynn Cisl, John Dimmer, Joe Roberto, Edward Lee, Bob Vibe, Keith Klein, Don Wallace, Roxanne Upton, Tom Moss, Tammy Wallace, Pat Calderhead, Steve Perry, Norm Findley, Gerald Novotny Sr., Robert Gibson, Carla Quenzer, Wayne Omel, Al Chambers, Patricia R. Cabrera, James R. Jones, Victor A. Perella, Phil Riley and Art King.

Family members and friends as well as others in the community who may wish to attend this event are welcome at a cost of $18 per person. Reservations must be made no later than 5 p.m. April 10 by calling President David Seifert at (530) 541-4557 or Sweepstakes Chairman Tom Toreno at (530) 577-4484. No host cocktails will be available from 6 to 7 p.m. and dinner will be served from 6 to 7 p.m. The final draw will take place thereafter.
