Arum Street in the industrial area was abuzz with excitement on Saturday as more than 800 people attended the draw in Ford Hermanus’s Pasella Promotion. With a brand-new Ford Figo to the value of R215 200 up for grabs, the anticipation mounted as the 10 finalists were announced.
Scores of people crammed into Ford’s show- room to get a glimpse of who would be the lucky winner. The tension was palpable as one after the other, the 10 finalists tried their luck at unlocking the car with the set of keys handed to them.
Markus and Nicole Koen (above) were overjoyed when the doors of the Figo suddenly clicked open. The couple, who has been married for only a year and own a holiday home in Hermanus, had driven all the way from their hometown of Darling to attend the draw. They were among the first entries in the Pasella Promotion after they’d brought a second-hand bakkie from the dealership while on holiday here in January.
Wikus Niemand, owner of Ford Hermanus, says the promotion, which has been running for the last six months, was a huge success. “We issued 7 283 tickets to customers and supporters of the business.
“A total of 673 tickets were issued from car sales alone, of which 416 were issued through Ford Credit. I want to thank everyone involved – and keep your eyes peeled for the next promotion!”
