DEXTER – Sunoco announced that Dexter resident Elisha Chadwick was one of 14 grand prize winners in its 13th annual Sunoco UltraTech Free Fuel 5000 sweepstakes. She was awarded her prize of $5,000 worth of free fuel at a ceremony held Nov. 2 in her honor at the Sunoco station on Church Street.

Chadwick, 33, is an assistant teacher at Early Head Start in Dover-Foxcroft, about 30 minutes from where she lives. Driving to and from work every day means that she needs to make frequent stops to fill up on gas.

Chadwick exclusively stops at Sunoco when she needs fuel, both locally and when she is traveling out-of-state. She appreciates the quality service, the convenience and the friendly welcome she receives when she visits.

“The staff goes above and beyond,” Chadwick said. “They always have a treat for my dog, and they joke with my 5-year-old daughter. They’re friendly people.”

Chadwick can clearly recall when the attendants at her local station handed out Sunoco decals. She was one of the first to grab one, joining thousands of other Sunoco fans around the country who participate in the annual sweepstakes. She was proud to display the decal on her new Dodge Journey, but had no idea that it would result in her being spotted, winning a $10 gift card and entering to win the grand prize.

Chadwick will use the $5,000 grand prize to fill up for her four-hour drives to Massachusetts to visit her grandfather, whose day was brightened by hearing the winning news. Now she will be able to make frequent trips to spend time with him without having to worry about the cost of fuel.

“Being able to reward loyal Sunoco fans like Elisha is what this sweepstakes is all about,” said Fred McConnell, director of Fuels Marketing. “We are thrilled we’re able to help Elisha take these meaningful trips to visit family.”
