20-y-o wins Hot Summer Wheels for her mom
Martena Dawkins entered the Busta soft drinks Hot Summer Wheels promotion with the aim of winning the car for her mother. Her entry was among the 80,000 from Jamaica and 250,000 overall from across the region.
Dawkins said she submitted multiple entries daily so that she could increase her chances of winning. And as fate would have it, she won the grand prize of a 2023 Honda HRV.
"I was at work when I got the call. I was lucky enough to be able to answer at the time, because we can't really use phones at work. When I heard that I won, I was overjoyed, jumping and screaming in shock. I'm very thankful to Busta for this, it's definitely a life-changing experience and one I will never forget," Dawkins said.
Dawkins collected her grand prize last Friday, which was her 20th birthday.
In addition to the car, there were over 100 weekly winners collectively receiving more than US$15,000 in cash and Amazon Gift cards.
As part of the Hot Summer Wheels promotion, consumers had to purchase a bottle of Busta, Classic soft drinks or Turbo energy drink and submit their name, a telephone number and the eight-digit code printed on the bottle to a WhatsApp number or via a website link.
"We made a lot of people happy over the nine weeks of the promotion and we are happy to be able to do that," said Gary Dixon, head of marketing, for S.M. Jaleel, makers of the Busta, Classic soft drinks and Turbo beverages.
