SYDNEY: Uniden has announced the winner of its Win a Lexus consumer promotion – Annette Evans of Monto, Queensland, who entered the draw at the local Chalmers Retravision store.

Evans, whose name was drawn out of a barrel in Uniden’s Sydney office this week, has won a Lexus IS250 with power moonroof.

She entered the draw after purchasing one of Uniden’s latest GPS car navigation units, the GNS 8430, from Chalmers Retravision in the small Queensland town of Monto, about 500km north of Brisbane up the Burnett Highway.

“When contacted on Friday, Mrs Evans could not believe her luck and thought one of her friends was playing a practical joke on her,” said a Uniden spokesperson in the announcement.

“She was shocked but thrilled to find out that she was the lucky winner chosen from the thousands of entries Uniden received throughout the promotional period.”
