With the lure of $250,000 in cash and car and other giveaways, Billy Fuccillo, owner of the Fucillo Automotive Group, said he expects between 15,000 and 20,000 at Fuccillo Kia’s HUGEfest 2012 event.
The event will be held tomorrow, Thursday, May 31, at the dealership on Pine Island Road.
“I’m basing the numbers on registrations we have had for the event,” he said.
The event will begin around 5 p.m with a free concert starting at 5:30 p.m. with several bands. With the recent addition of the nationally acclaimed band STYX, who will perform at the end of the event, the numbers seemed to grow higher.
He will split the $250,000 into awards of $10,000 each to 25 different individuals, awarded at intervals during the event. You must be present to win any prizes.
“I want to start giving some money out and 5, some around 7:30 p.m. and then more later, with the help of my co-hosts Caroline Renfro and Abby Deaton,” he said.
Another relatively new addition to what he plans to give away is a Jamaican vacation.
“It will be on my private jet, to my private home in Jamaica, along with a 2012 Kia Optima,” Fuccillo said.
That was part of a promotion he did with Beasley Broadcasting radio station 103.9, he said. Individuals are required to register through the “Live Music Huge” sweepstakes.
“They’ll have 103 people qualified for the drawing, to win the trip on my jet and a car like mine.”
Listen to the station today, Wednesday May 30, for information on how to get into the sweepstakes, station officials suggest, or go their tent at the event Thursday for one last person to get in.
There will also be last-minute registration until 3 p.m. Thursday for a chance to win a 2012 KIA Sorento and the cash prizes. This is part of the “Don’t Text & Drive” pledge card campaign by Clear Channel Media & Entertainment group, which includes radio stations 95.3 The River, Cat Country 107.1, Y100 and 105.5 The Beat.
Fuccillo Kia is located at 404 NE Pine Island Road, in Cape Coral.
