Houston resident Fred Wilson accepts a prize for $10

From the moment he woke up last Saturday morning, Fred Wilson felt like a winner.

Wilson, who lives in Houston, was the lucky one among the hundreds who entered their names for the $10,000 gold draw at Sullivan Motor Product’s grand opening on Sept. 17.

Early in the day, Wilson told his sister, “I’m going to go home and have a shower and get ready because I know I’m going to win that $10,000.”

Wilson said he would use the prize to buy a new truck for work.

Hundreds of people crowded the new Sullivan’s showroom on Saturday.

Outside bright new showroom,  members of the Houston Luckies donned their hockey jerseys and grilled hot dogs and burgers for a long line of hungry Houstonites. By 1:00 p.m., the players had already served more than 350 burgers.

Sullivan’s is a major sponsor of the Luckies, and many other community groups.

In fact, across town on the same day, a walk was held to honour the late Helen Sullivan and to fundraise for a cause she herself supported—new senior’s residences in Houston.

Several of the walkers finished their 5 and 10-kilometre circuits at the dealership in time to grab a bite.
