Hertz has announced that Jeri Hassell from Gainesville, Texas, is the grand prize winner of its Hertz Hawaiian Sweepstakes.
Hassell, 67, was selected randomly to win a weeklong vacation for four to Maui, courtesy of Hertz.
Hassell, a retired school librarian aide with two adult children and four grandchildren, intends to create many memories with her family with the grand prize, which is valued at more than $40,000.
Although she is unable to take the trip to Hawaii, she plans to use the money to donate to a local dog rescue organization, go on a road trip, and help her children take her grandkids to Disney World as she and her husband of 47 years did when their children were younger.
"I heard about the sweepstakes from my daughter whose company uses Hertz," said Hassell. "When I got the call that I had won, I honestly couldn't believe it – it was a jaw-dropping moment. This is truly life-changing, and I can't thank Hertz enough."
"We pride ourselves in having great cars that get you where you need to be, but our ultimate goal is to help people like Mrs. Hassell and others create lasting memories, which we take very seriously," said Jayesh Patel, Hertz’s senior vice president. "From the quality of vehicles and service and care that our employees provide, to opportunities to win exciting experiences, it's all about making people feel special through gestures big or small."
