Car Promotion Winner Announced

The Berkshire United Way car promotion winner was announced at Berkshire Chamber Night, held at Greylock Federal Credit Union's headquarters in Pittsfield.  Christine DeGregorio's ticket was one of 6,658 drawn by Greylock Federal Credit Union CEO Marilyn Sperling and was among 6,658 eligible tickets. DeGregorio was later contacted by phone by Sperling, Johnson Dealerships' Vice President Tary Johnson, and Berkshire United Way President and CEO Kristine Hazzard.

The car, a 2012 Ford Focus, was donated by Johnson Dealerships, Inc. and Greylock Federal Credit Union in support of Berkshire United Way's year-long campaign.  Campaign participants automatically receive at least one and up to three entry tickets. In lieu of the car, the winner may accept a payment of $10,000.

Nearly 200 people attended the event, which was held on Wednesday, January 18th. Although DeGregorio was not among them, she later explained that she's just recently welcomed a new grandchild and believes this latest bit of good luck is another great indicator for the balance of 2012.
