The feel of Halloween was in the air at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino as hundreds of people gathered to determine the mystery of who would win the brand new, shiny, black Jaguar XF. One lucky woman dressed for the pre-Halloween occasion and she thinks this just may have given her the edge over the rest of the contestants.
Saturday, October 30th, the resort/casino held its Black Cat Jaguar XF Giveaway. Twenty four contestants had qualified to play for the luxury car in previous drawings that began in mid-September. Those 24 hopeful new car owners made their way to the event stage on that Saturday night. After each person selected a key ring with a number attached to it, the event's emcee spun the prize wheel. Each space on the wheel indicated a number that corresponded to one of the key chains. With anticipation one could almost feel, everyone at the event stage watched the wheel make rotation after rotation. It finally slowed and came to a stop on number 17. That keychain belonged to Cheryl Thomsen of Indio, CA. She screamed out loud, "oh my gosh!" In total disbelief that she had just won a $70,000 car, Cheryl made her way to the stage. The emcee handed her the car keys and she walked over to check out her new ride. "I wore a Halloween t-shirt and sweater tonight for good luck and I guess it worked," Cheryl said. A recreational golfer, she said she's now going to look very good pulling up to the clubhouse in her shiny new Jaguar.
