The life-long hockey fan says prize is better than any hockey final
(Calgary, AB) May 30, 2011: Mr. Lube Canada has announced the winner of its “$50,000 Ultimate Hat Trick” contest. The prize will be presented to the winner at a ceremony held at Mr. Lube in Calgary, Alberta on 130th Avenue on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 at 3:00pm.
To celebrate Canada’s national past-time, Mr. Lube ran the nation-wide “$50,000 Ultimate Hat Trick” contest between March 28 and May 8, 2011. The contest offered one winner a triple prize combo consisting of 4 tickets to any hockey game in the playoff final series, a hockey party for 30 friends and the ultimate dream home-theatre.
Over 100,000 Canadians entered the contest at Mr. Lube locations across the country.
The winner, Mr. Harry Stewart Peloski, a residential framer from Calgary, is a long-time hockey fan. As a loyal Mr. Lube customer for the past 12 years, he visited his local Mr. Lube location for his regular servicing and was automatically entered into the contest when he purchased a Castrol oil change. He was declared the winner and will be presented with his prize from Ms. Georgia Dahle, Mr. Lube Canada’s Communications Director on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 at the Mr. Lube location on 130th Avenue in Calgary.
Mr. Peloski is now looking forward to reaping the rewards of his win. Having never won a contest in his life, he now feels like his luck has changed.
“This is better than the Flames making it to the Stanley Cup. My wife and I are so excited and looking forward to experiencing the prize,” said Mr. Peloski. “Who knew that my regular oil change would lead to this incredible win? I can’t wait to get my friends and family together to share in this experience.”
According to Jason Guenter, local owner of the Mr. Lube location with the grand prize-winning entry, this contest and its winner are a perfect fit. "Mr. Peloski is a valued Mr. Lube client,'' said Jason."This promotion was a great way to create excitement for all of our customers and the community in general, to share their interest in our favourite sport and to bring the playoff experience home to our stores with some super prizes.”
