Auburn Hills, Mich., Oct 19, 2005 –
As thousands of football fans converge in Jacksonville, Fla. for this year’s “mega” rivalry between the Florida Gators and the Georgia Bulldogs, the Dodge brand is pulling the competition off the field and raising money for hurricane relief efforts.
Dodge is encouraging devoted Gators and Bulldogs fans to show their competitive spirit by participating in three entertaining “Dodge Mega Livin’, Mega Givin'” contests to be held outside Alltel Stadium on Thursday, Oct. 27 and Saturday, Oct. 29.
As a celebration of everything “mega,” including one of the largest tailgating parties in the country, the “Dodge Mega Livin’, Mega Givin'” contests and exhibit feature super-sized “mega wonders” like a larger-than-life HEMI®-powered tricycle, giant Georgia and Florida football helmets, a mega-size “fan” and the all-new 2006 Dodge Ram Mega CabTM truck with the largest pickup cab ever.
For each contest participant, Chrysler Group will donate $25 to the American Red Cross to benefit hurricane relief efforts and an additional $100 for each yard a giant football travels in the Mega Toss contest — up to $10,000 total.
