Rutter’s Farm Stores presented the first grand prize in its summer gas giveaway–free gas for three years–to Wrightsville, Pa. resident Mary Wherley.
Rutter’s officials presented the award, valued at $6,750.74, at Wherley’s family-owned business, Wherley Automotive. Her husband, Lowell, with whom she has two sons, accompanied her.
The family expects to use some of the prize to fill up the gas tank on their motor home, which it takes on camping trips.
“It’s so wonderful,” said Wherley. “We’re so appreciative.”
Rutter’s “Fuel Up Free!” gas giveaway began May 28 and runs through Aug. 26. Four customers will win free gas for three years, with the remaining grand prize drawings scheduled for July 25, Aug. 15 and Sept. 11.
During the giveaway, Rutter’s offers weekly food or beverage specials. With each purchase of a special, a customer receives an entry blank. The more specials customers purchase, the more chances they have to win.
