Local man wins new truck
Eagle River’s Winston Voetman was presented a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 at a ceremony held April 3 at Litihia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of South Anchorage.
Voetman won the truck through the company’s promotional mailer contest. Voetmann received a scratch-and-win promotional mailer, and went to check his entry during a promotional event in Wasilla April 1.
Votemann said his contest entry (which included a vehicle key) indicated he was a winner — but not necessarily the grand prize winner.
“I was going to give the key off the mailer to my granddaughter to play with but decided since we were headed that direction, we would stop by the sale,” Votemann said in a press release.
A greeter at the Wasilla Walmart where the event was held helped Mr. Voetman check his entry against the winning numbers. They matched.
“I went back to the car and told my wife, but she thought it must be an April Fools prank. As it turns out, it wasn’t,” he said.
