BUFFALO, NY – Today, David Dale of Buffalo scored an all-new 2012 Ford Focus, courtesy of the Western New York Ford Dealers. Ten finalists competed in the 2012 Ford Focus Hockey Shootout, the second annual event that took place at the Labatt Blue Buffalo Street Hockey Tournament. Contestants each received a chance to shoot a ball through a mouse-hole shaped target from 100 feet away. Mr. Dale was the first person to score, claiming him the grand prize.
“I knew it was going to take one very luck shot. I haven't picked up a hockey stick in 35 years,” said David Dale. “Thank you so much to the Western New York Ford Dealers. My wife isn't going to believe this - we won a new Ford Focus!”
In January, eligible individuals entered their names into a sweepstakes for a chance to play in the 2012 Ford Focus Hockey Shootout. Entry forms were located at over 70 local retailers, including NOCO Express, Arby’s, and local Ford dealerships, as well as online at www.wnyford.com. Ten finalists were randomly-selected from the entries and took their shots in the order that their names were drawn. Mr. Dale was the ninth contestant to shoot the ball. He entered the contest at Arby's in Lancaster.
“We are thrilled to award a new Ford Focus to David and his family today. Wow, what an impressive shot that was!” said Dave Smith, representative for the Ford Dealers of Western New York. “We hope everyone enjoyed the second annual Ford Hockey Shootout and took some time to check out the new 2012 Ford Focus.”
