Contest winner Denisa Tucek collects grand prize at Burlington Toyota
 
(TORONTO) – Toyota’s 2011 “Make Things Better” contest came to a close today when Denisa Tucek, who purchased a 2011 Toyota RAV4 from Burlington Toyota last January, came to the dealership to pick up her cheque for $10,000.
 
“It’s our pleasure to present this grand prize of $10,000 to Denisa Tucek to make things just a little bit better in her life,” said Warren Orton, Director, Marketing, Toyota Canada Inc. “It’s a fun way to reinforce the serious message that ‘make things better’ is an important call to action for Toyota Canada and our dealers as we strive to make a difference in communities all across the country”.  
 
For example, Burlington Toyota is proud to support major institutions in its local community, including Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, The Burlington Arts Centre, and Wellington Square United Church, as well as various children’s sports teams.  
 
Tucek, an Oakville native, filled out her lucky ballot at last year’s Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, which she attended with her husband and two young sons.  Tucek said she has yet to decide what she’ll do with the prize money. “We’ll get together as a family to discuss how some of the prize money can be used to support a charity, while the remainder might go towards a new Toyota. I really like the Sienna,” she said.
