As the winner of the Sutherland Holden-Sharks Holden Captiva competition Peter Phillips was understandably excited when he drew the winning key form the barrel in front of wife Joanne, children Katelyn and Scott and a large crowd of members at Sharkies Leagues Club on Tuesday.
That excitement level went another notch today when Phillips was presented with the real keys to his new Captiva 5 by Sutherland Holden Dealer Principal Lee Matenga and sales manager Steven Blakeborough at the Sutherland showroom today.
Sharks NRL stars Ben Barba and Sam Tagataese were on hand to congratulate Phillips and watch him drive away with his outstanding prize.
Still coming to terms with his win, Phillips on taking ownership of the car could only offer; “It just doesn’t happen. I can’t believe I’ve won a prize like this.”
The Holden Captiva competition saw Sharks members swipe their cards upon entry to the club or when purchasing food or beverages, with 37 members then drawn out and given the opportunity to choose a key to unlock the key to the new car.
Much to his amazement as just the third to pull a key out of the barrel Phillips picked correctly and the rest is history.
“I think I’ll just leave my old Commodore here,” Phillips added before driving away.
