Fuccillo customer makes half-court shot, wins car
Fuccillo Automotive Group celebrated the conclusion of its statewide, month-long “March Huge-A-Thon 2018” promotion with half-court shot contests held Monday at four dealerships: Fuccillo Kia of Cape Coral, Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte, Fuccillo Kia of Wesley Chapel and Fuccillo Nissan of Clearwater.
During the events Billy Fuccillo Sr. and Billy Fuccillo Jr. gave customers the opportunity to take one half-court basketball shot for the chance to win their recently purchased or leased vehicle. Any participant who successfully made his or her half-court shot was given the opportunity to continue shooting to potentially win $1 million.
To be eligible, participants must have purchased or leased a new Kia from Fuccillo Kia of Cape Coral, Fuccillo Kia of Wesley Chapel or Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte, or purchased or leased a new Nissan from Fuccillo Nissan of Clearwater between March 1 April 2. Of the approximate 1,200 eligible customers, 400 participated in the half-court shot contests.
Renestin St. John of Winter Haven, Fla., made his half-court shot at the Fuccillo Kia of Wesley Chapel event and, as a result, will have his previously purchased 2018 Kia Forte paid off by Fuccillo Kia of Wesley Chapel.
St. John did not successfully make the required three consecutive half-court shots to also win $1 million.
Individuals who purchased or leased a new vehicle from the four dealerships between March 1 April 2 also received a cabin aboard “Cruise with Huge 2018” on Royal Caribbean’s “Navigator of the Seas.” The 6-day, 5-night cruise will depart from Miami, Dec. 2, stopping at Cozumel, Mexico, and Belize City, Belize, before returning to Miami on Dec. 7. If the car that was bought or leased from a Fuccillo Kia dealership was a 2017 Kia Cadenza, the customer received two cabins on the cruise. In addition, any customer who purchased or leased a new Kia between March 30 April 2, 2018 at Fuccillo Kia of Cape Coral received double cabins on “Cruise with Huge 2018” and a complimentary flat-screen TV.
The “March Huge-A-Thon” promotion marked the fourth year that Fuccillo Kia of Cape Coral offered a “HUGE” basketball promotion to customers. It was the third year for Fuccillo Kia of Wesley Chapel, second year for Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte and first year for Fuccillo Nissan of Clearwater. Collectively, six local participants had successfully made a half-court shot in similar events in previous years, and as a result, had their previously purchased new car paid off.
A fifth half-court shot event was scheduled for Tuesday, April 3, at Fuccillo Nissan of Orange Park to celebrate the dealership’s official grand opening and the conclusion of Fuccillo’s March Huge-A-Thon 2018.
