The Dodge Nitro, contest prize awarded by Rocky Motors

A local car dealership gave one lucky person a free SUV, Friday evening.

Approved By Sam and Rocky Motors gave away a Dodge Nitro to Sarah Ryrie after the dealership ran a Facebook video contest.

Organizer Sam Sinjari announced the contest through social media on September 11th and asked contestants to shoot a video at the dealership proposing their reasons for wanting to win.

Contestants were then charged with the task of getting likes on their video. The video maker with the most likes would get the keys to their new Nitro.

“We wanted to give back to the community. We wanted to do it in a fun way that would bring people in to the dealership,” said Sinjari. “It’s been a lot of fun.”

According to Sinjari, more than 20 people entered into the contest.

On the dealership’s Facebook page, Sarah Ryrie and Papa’s Girls from Windsor were the two leading contestants.

Ryrie planned on filling the car with non-perishable foods for St. Clair College’s food bank.

Papa’s Girls planned on donating the car to their grandfather.

The contestants came into the dealership at 3pm and Sinjari spent all evening counting to verify the legitimacy of each like received on the videos.
