July 12, 2007 — CYPRESS, Calif.
Michael Jutajero, a resident of Sewell, NJ, may not have ever had much luck playing the state lottery, but today he was on hand at Prestige Mitsubishi in Turnersville, NJ to pick up a brand new car after winning the 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander Sweepstakes.
As part of the "Out Everything" campaign that coincided with the introduction of the all-new second generation 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander, Mitsubishi Motors North America launched the sweepstakes late last year to give away a Grand Prize of a fully loaded Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4WD with Navigation system, Luxury Package and XLS Sun & Sound Package. The sweepstakes saw more than 400,000 people across the country register online at www.OutEverything.com from October 10th, 2006 to February 28th, 2007.
"The vehicle's styling, features and value is what originally drew me to the 2007 Outlander," said Jutajero, a 24-year-old college student and local retail store manager who first saw the vehicle at the Philadelphia Auto Show. "Once I came across the sweepstakes, I kept logging on to the Web site so I could submit as many entries as possible."
In addition to the top-of-the -line Outlander, Jutajero had three prize packages to choose from and selected the OutPostModernFamily Prize Package. With an approximate retail value of $4,552, the package includes a 42" Mitsubishi widescreen plasma TV with over the air HDTV tuner, a Sony BDP-S1 Blu-Ray disc player, a $500 Amazon.com gift card to build his DVD collection, a $500 Sports Authority gift card to purchase sports equipment, an Xbox 360 core system with additional controller and a $150 Amazon.com gift card to purchase Xbox 360 wireless games.
Prestige Mitsubishi Sales Manager George Braun, MMNA Philadelphia District Sales Manager Larry Bogusz and MMNA Regional Sales Manager Mike Szczepanski met Jutajero at the Turnersville dealership to present him with his prize.
"We're pleased to have the opportunity to share this exciting moment with Mr. Jutajero and actually hand him the keys to a car that will change his day-to-day life," said Szczepanski.
The 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander Sweepstakes required participants to register on the www.OutEverything.com Web site and select a prize package in order to receive one (1) entry. Participants had the opportunity to submit additional Bonus Entries by engaging in various activities on the Web site, such as watching videos, reading descriptions and taking quizzes about the 2007 Outlander, and by sending in mail-in entries.
