auto trader

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly Bennett is now the
proud owner of a new 2010 Honda Accord and 2010 Philadelphia Phillies season
tickets as the grand prize winner in the Turn 2 Sweepstakes.
As grand prize winner, Bennett received $25,000 toward the purchase of a new
car and season tickets to one of four teams associated with the contest - the
Phillies, the Yankees, the Angels or the Giants. As a resident of Kunkletown,
Penn., and a Phillies fan, the choice of which tickets to snag may have been
easier than which car to pick - but not much.

"With millions of new and used cars listed for sale on and
$25,000 to spend, finding just the right car might seem like a challenge,"
said Director of Sponsorships and Promotions Don Dixon. "But
with functionality that lets consumers search for cars by make, model, color,
price range, options and many other criteria, makes it easy for
every car buyer to find the right car at the right price."

Bennett will take delivery of the car she purchased with her winnings on
Friday, Nov. 6 at 1 p.m. at Ray Price Honda, located at 410 Analomink Road,
Rt. 447, East Stroudsburg, Penn. The dealership is located at the corner of
Analomink Road/Rt. 447 and Fawn Road. Visit or call
570-421-2000 for directions. Representatives from and Ray
Price Honda will be on hand to celebrate the win with Bennett.

Running from April 15 through September 30 of this year, the on-line
sweepstakes was tied to's sponsorship of four major league
baseball teams: the Phillies, the New York Yankees, the Los Angeles Angels of
Anaheim and the San Francisco Giants. Each market had its own team-customized
version of the game to play. Contestants clicked on panels on the on-line
game board to reveal pictures of players from each team and graphics of
baseball items like a baseball glove and bats. Each image had a duplicate on
the board and players clicked on the board until they matched all the images
or they ran out of time. Throughout the game, contestants had the opportunity

toward the purchase of a car and season tickets to one of the four teams for
the 2010 season.
