Four finalists who will have the opportunity to win a new Ford Mustang are still to be determined as we close in on a huge night of basketball at the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center on Thursday, Feb. 3.
Appalachian Wireless is partnering with East Kentucky Broadcasting and Bruce Walters Ford in support of Pikeville College. Utilizing Appalachian Wireless’ technical network, customers have an opportunity to win a
2011 Ford Mustang during the Pikeville College men’s basketball game.
Thursday night’s activities begin with a 6 p.m. tip off as the Pikeville College women’s basketball team takes on Georgetown College. During halftime of the women’s game one lucky fan will have the opportunity to win $25,000 by taking a half-court shot. The men’s game is set to begin at 8 p.m.
There’s still plenty of time to text FORD to the short code 3673 from your Appalachian Wireless phone to register to win this brand new automobile. Premium text rates apply.
The final participant will be chosen from those who text from inside the Expo Center on Thursday night.
Then, at halftime of the men’s game against Georgetown College, the six finalists will be given keys. One will unlock the Mustang and the person holding that key will drive it home from the game that night.
Four LCD 40 inch Samsung televisions will also be given away Thursday as part of Appalachian Wireless Night and the six finalists for the Mustang will receive a free Motorola Milestone phone. In addition, the first 3,000 fans in the door receive a free t-shirt.
“It is our goal to set a new Mid-South Conference attendance record on that evening, which has been designated as Appalachian Wireless night,” said Danny VanHoose, marketing director for Appalachian Wireless. “We encourage everyone to get behind Pikeville College by showing your support for this great institution.”
Last February, Pikeville College set a single-game Mid-South Conference regular season attendance record at the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center as a crowd of 3,558 watched Pikeville and visiting Georgetown College. During halftime of the men’s game, Appalachian Wireless, in conjunction with Walter’s Toyota and East Kentucky Broadcasting, sent one lucky winner home with a 2010 Camry.
“We are fortunate to have great partners with our basketball programs at Pikeville College. Appalachian Wireless, Walters Ford and EKB are great examples of this commitment,” said Kelly Wells, men’s basketball coach. “With their assistance we have been able to grow our program in every avenue. Our goal is to be the best NAIA basketball program in the country year in and year out. With these great promotions we continually move closer to our goals. I’d like to invite all our fans to come be a part of our record-breaking history on Feb. 3 – again.”
