The 6th Annual Homewood Chevy Cares Car Giveaway Contest

As drivers from Calumet City to Chicago know, Chevrolet of Homewood is the place to go to find all of the exciting new Chevy models, as well as a fine selection of high quality used vehicles. But we’re also committed to being a positive force in our community, which is why we are proud to announce our 6th Annual Homewood Chevy Cares Car Giveaway Contest.

From October 16 to December 14 we are asking contestants to submit a 200-word essay describing how a new Chevrolet Sonic will provide you or one of your friends or neighbors with a fresh start. Then, on December 15, the top-five finalists will be chosen by the Chevrolet of Homewood Family. They will then move on to the final round, with the winner, who will be notified on December 20, receiving the keys to a BRAND NEW CHEVROLET SONIC on Christmas Eve.

Celebrating the Season of Giving

Last year, the Homewood Chevy Cares Car Giveaway Contest received more than 300 entries, and over 23,000 votes were cast online. When it was all over the Ferralez family of Oak Forest were the winners of a new Sonic.

While they were thrilled with the new car, the most important gift they received last holiday season was the recent news that their young daughter’s cancer was in remission. However, the financial burden that comes with fighting cancer really put the family in a bind. They came close to losing their car as well as their home.

The Ferralez family expressed gratitude to Chevrolet of Homewood and to the community at large for helping them through tough times. “If it wasn’t for our community,” said Ray Ferralez, “we would have lost our home.”

“Homewood Chevy Cares is about giving back to the community,” Tina Lonkar, Chevrolet of Homewood’s Internet Sales Manager said. “It’s about giving to a family in need. It’s about giving somebody a fresh start.”
