Feed a family. Make a kid happy. Win a new vehicle.
Congratulations to Ashley Augustine of Surprise, Ariz. for making all of that happen!
ABC15 in partnership with Sanderson Ford and Sanderson Lincoln, kicked off Operation Santa Claus November 16, inviting everyone across the Valley to make a donation of toys, food, clothes or money to benefit four different charities.
With each accepted donation, donors had the opportunity to be one of 15 finalists to win their choice of a new Ford F-150 Super Crew Ecoboost or the all new 2013 LINCOLN MKZ.
And it all came down to Friday, December 20 on Sonoran Living Live! The finalist with the key that started the truck was Ashley Augustine of Surprise.
She says it's her first car ever and can't wait to drive her mom Sandra around!
Donations from Operation Santa Claus will benefit St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance, Phoenix Children's Hospital, The Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center and Military Assistance Mission Arizona.
