Appalachian Wireless announces new promotion

November 12, 2010 12:00 AM
What do Bears and Mustangs have in common: a winning season and the chance to win a new car.

Appalachian Wireless recently announced a promotional partnership 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.

Registration for the Mustang can be done through a premium short code message from an Appalachian Wireless phone. To register, simply text FORD to the short code 3673 from your Appalachian Wireless phone to register for this brand new automobile. Premium text rates apply.

The car will be given away to one lucky winner at the conclusion of the Pikeville College men’s basketball game against Georgetown College on Feb. 3, 2011.

“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.”

Season tickets for Pikeville College basketball games are on sale now. Tickets are $75 for all Pikeville College basketball nights, which will include all men’s and women’s games and select high school basketball games as well.
