Liberty Bay Auto Center once again will be giving away a free Mini Van to a deserving family.
Poulsbo, WA -- November 16, 2007 – On Friday, December 14th of this year, Liberty Bay Auto Center will once again donate a late model Mini-Van to a deserving family in the community, and we'd like your help. When we did a similar give-away in December of 2004, 184 applications were submitted, which in total, represented 131 families. Once all applications were received the selection process began. The selection team consists of the leadership team at Liberty Bay Auto center and a representative from the various sponsors that participated. According to Doug Haughton, General Manager at Liberty Bay Auto Center; “the process was extremely humbling and I only wish we had more vans to give away. Thankfully, the selection team worked through this challenging task and selected a truly deserving family.” The 2004 recipient, Norma Barnet, is a true hero. She opens her home to special needs foster children and is truly deserving of this gift. Not only did Norma received a Mini-Van, but it also came with free maintenance for a year, free gas for a year, and thanks to Central Market in Poulsbo, WA the van was stuffed with groceries. We have to tell you, it was a truly emotional experience to see her kids light up when they found out they had won and the shocked look on Normas' face when she saw all the groceries as the kids opened the sliding door. There wasn't a dry eye in the room!
This all was made possible by you, the community, and we want to thank you and once again ask for your help.
So how can you help? We ask that you team up with Liberty Bay Auto Center and help us give a special gift to a truly deserving family in our community again this year. Simply pick up a nomination form, fill in the requested information, and then return it to us. Feel Free to drop it off, mail it in, or email it back to .
Entry forms can be picked up at Liberty Bay Auto Center, participating Churches, or from any of our generous sponsors. Keep your eyes open for future news so that we can keep you posted on important information, like deadlines for entries and where you can come see the 2003 Ford Windstar LX that we will be giving away. And of course, you can always feel free to visit for current up to date information. We know that with your help we can once again make this a truly great success.
