ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 14, 2008--Barbara Shuttleworth is a sensible woman who appreciates a good deal. So, when she saw an opportunity to enter Charter's Save Green, Go Green Sweepstakes to win a 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid, she did.
And this afternoon, the St. Charles, MO woman who has "never won anything" in her life, will take the keys to that new hybrid automobile worth $24,000 from Charter President & CEO Neil Smit and drive it home.
The semi-retired Mrs. Shuttleworth, who provides administrative support part-time for local companies, had just driven her 10-year-old Ford Taurus home Wednesday afternoon when she received a call from Charter's Online Marketing Director Jim Gallagher, who designed and directed the contest that ran throughout the month of October.
"When he told me I had won the car, I couldn't believe it," said Mrs. Shuttleworth. "I've never won anything and to win a car is very exciting."
Mr. Gallagher was just as excited to give the hybrid Honda away. The winning customer's name was randomly drawn from among 124,063 Save Green, Go Green Sweepstakes entrants.
"Mrs. Shuttleworth has been a Charter Communications customer since 1998 and she knows a good value when she sees one," said Mr. Gallagher.
The St. Charles resident is a Charter Triple Play customer who has Charter's Digital Cable, Telephone and High-Speed Internet services. "Winning the Charter sweepstakes not only adds value to being a Charter customer but will help save on gas and help the environment, too," said Mr. Gallagher.
"I have an HDTV and really enjoy watching high-definition programs on Charter," Mrs. Shuttleworth said. "It spoils you for anything else."
According to the winner, she had been thinking about her aging automobile. The grandmother of four loves a road trip with her daughter, who lives in the area, and she makes trips to Houston, TX to visit her daughter and family and other family members in the Midwest.
"Sometimes, I procrastinate doing something, but I'm glad I entered this sweepstakes right away."
