Leighton is the lucky winner

The winner of the SaxonMG License to WIN contest was revealed in an exciting and suspenseful Grand Prize Give-Away event on Saturday, November 19th as hundreds of envious onlookers waved their SaxonMG green glow-sticks.

Eight semi-finalists took the stage one by one, drawing a number for ‘their’ treasure chest and chance to win the grand prize. One of those treasure chests held the key for the grand prize of a 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe and one year insurance from SaxonMG. Ensuring no one left the stage empty handed, SaxonMG placed Blackberry’s with hands free ear pieces in each of the other treasure chests.

Winner thrilled

Semi-finalist number six, Mr. Leighton McIntyre, was the grand prize winner and was thrilled, commenting, “I didn’t appreciate the intensity of the contest until I went on Facebook and saw how many were entered and following the contest?” said Mr. McIntyre, “I really am lucky to have won!”

Pirates Week Festival is the largest event in the Cayman Islands and this year, SaxonMG as the title sponsor of the event, wanted to add something special demonstrating its commitment to give back to the community. SaxonMG CEO Brian Williams said, “This is the one festival which celebrates the culmination of all that we treasure; our heritage, our culture, our islands, our family and our friends. We wanted to add something special this year as the new title sponsor, and the License to WIN contest certainly filled that role.”

Mr. McIntyre was one of over 3,467 individual contest entrants, and his lucky CODE was drawn from over 32,159 CODEs entered.

The License to WIN Contest ran from 24 October – 18 November with semi-finalists drawn each day of Pirates’ Week from November 10th through to November 18th from the registrations and CODEs entered via the www.mglicensetowin.ky website.
