AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — An area Avon representative will be driving a brand new convertible Ford Mustang, just in time for summer.
Jeannie Schneider of North Lima was one of four winners in an Avon contest for a 2014 Mustang. For the “Drive Your Business Success” contest, the representatives had to place $50 orders for three consecutive campaigns.
Their names were then entered into the drawing for the Mustang each time they reached that goal. Schneider was one of 600,000 representatives nationwide who entered the contest.
“When I got the pamphlet in my Avon box about driving you sweepstakes, I laughed and thought ‘that will never happen’ and it did. When it did, I could not believe it,” Schneider said.
Avon also surprised Schneider on Thursday with a check for $7,550 to cover the taxes on the car.
The Mustang was purchased from Fred Martin Ford in Austintown.
