More than 69,000 votes from around the country were received for the 3rd Annual Fox Valley Volkswagen LOVEbug “Share the Love” contest. On January 20th, at the grand finale event, Connie Hankins of Naperville and nonprofit organization Children’s Oncology Services were each awarded a brand new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle! In its third year, the LOVEbug “Share the Love” contest allows the public to nominate a deserving Chicagoan, plus select their favorite nonprofit to both win a 2012 Volkswagen Beetle.

“Fox Valley Volkswagen believes in community and wanted to show it in a big way,” said Emir Abinion, President of Fox Valley Volkswagen, who hosted the contest. “It is an amazing feeling to be able to give to people making such a difference in their local communities.” Abinion owns two Volkswagen dealerships and a GMC/Buick dealership. This year, Abinion doubled his donation by expanding the program to nonprofits to help with their fundraising efforts. According to Abinion, Fox Valley Volkswagen was overwhelmed by all of the amazing stories from Chicagoans making such an impact. All finalists in attendance at the grand finale event received a $250 gift certificate from the dealership.
