Friendship Circle Promoting Car Giveaway Contest
Beginning July 8, West Bloomfield nonprofit Friendship Circle and Varsity Lincoln Mercury of Novi will offer 36 ways over 36 days to award 36 keys, one of which will start a 2012 Lincoln MKZ for one lucky Metro Detroit resident. That lucky individual will win the use of the car for two years courtesy of Friendship Circle and Varsity Lincoln.
Friendship Circle and Varsity Lincoln have teamed up for the first ever Keys4Friendship promotion, which will culminate Aug. 21 at Friendship Circle.
The 36 key winners will gather at Friendship Circle from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. and one by one, until there is a winner, will try their key in the ignition of a 2012 Lincoln MKZ. Only one key will start the engine and that lucky person will be declared the winner of a two-year lease of the vehicle.
The way the contest works is that there are three ways to be awarded a key. The first will have Friendship Circle staffers driving around the Metro area searching for cars, vans and trucks with Friendship Circle magnets on them. The first car spotted with a magnet will be awarded a key and 12 of the keys will be given out in this fashion.
The second way to obtain a key will be through 12 different nonprofit volunteer opportunities. Community members will be urged via Facebook and email to volunteer their time and once there they will register to win a key. A random drawing will determine this winner.
Twelve additional keys will be distributed via Facebook where participants will be asked a question regarding how friendship played a role in their life. Each person will be able to submit his or her story on the Facebook tab.

"We are so excited and honored to have Varsity Lincoln sponsoring this wonderful promotion. The people at Varsity Lincoln have always been so community-minded and this is yet one more example of their commitment, in helping Friendship Circle," said Bassie Shemtov, Friendship Circle director in a statement Monday.
