Winner of this years Greenwood Chevrolet Car Drawing, Michele Bieber of McDonald


Greenwood Chevrolet, United Way of Trumbull County and United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley gathered together Wednesday, January 21 in the Greenwood Chevrolet showroom to announce one lucky winner. Donors who contributed $208 or more ($4 a week) were entered for a chance to win one of three prizes, all courtesy of Greenwood Chevrolet. The options included: a 2 year prepaid lease on a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, a 2 year prepaid lease on a 2015 Chevrolet Volt, or $15,000 cash. The winner could choose one of these prizes.

There were 10 finalists total, 5 from Trumbull County and 5 from Mahoning County. The
finalists and their families and friends were invited to Greenwood Chevrolet Showroom in
Austintown and one by one finalists selected a random key and attempted to start a 2015
Chevrolet Silverado

Michele Bieber of McDonald, Ohio was named the winner. Bieber, a member of General
Motors UAW Local 1112, is a first time donor to United Way of Trumbull County. When asked why she chose to give to United Way of Trumbull County, Bieber said, “It was time. I have been fortunate and I knew it was time to give back.” Not in need of a new car, Bieber took the cash option. Her plans include using some of the prize to “pay it forward.” Of the event, United Way of Trumbull County President Ginny Pasha said, “We are grateful to all of our donors who believe in the work being done in Trumbull County by our United Way. With many thanks to Greenwood Chevrolet, we have the opportunity to provide incentives and create excitement for donors. We are thrilled that one of our Trumbull County donors is the winner!”
