Federated 'Suite-Stakes' Winners Enjoy Ultimate Weekend

Federated ‘Suite-Stakes’ Winners Enjoy ‘Ultimate Weekend’

The promotion was conducted for Federated customers in good standing who enrolled in the contest before June 30.

The first group of grand-prize winners in the Federated “Suite-Stakes” contest enjoyed an action-packed weekend of baseball, racing and fun in St. Louis.

The grand-prize winners of the “Ultimate Weekend” and their guests are: Carlos and Ana Arrendondo; William Damico and Kristine Sambuco; Joel and Michelle Desrosiers; John Knight and Lance Johnson; Robert and Nicholas Maher; Chase and Charlene Nuxoll; and Jerry and Evelyn Spencer.

“We want to thank everyone who participated in the Federated Suite-Stakes contest,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president for Federated. “We had tremendous participation in this exciting program and received great feedback from members and customers alike. The Ultimate Weekend winners had an incredible time in St. Louis, and Kenny Schrader and the people from SRX racing helped make it a very memorable experience for them.”

The Ultimate Weekend kicked off with a St. Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds baseball game from a skybox at Busch Stadium. The next day, the contest winners enjoyed the nationally televised SRX race from a suite at Federated Auto Parts Raceway in Pevely, Missouri. One of the highlights of the race was the third-place finish of Federated spokesperson Schrader. The weekend culminated with an Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tour and a farewell dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House.

The Federated Suite-Stakes promotion was conducted for Federated customers in good standing who enrolled in the contest before June 30. More than 4,000 prizes were awarded this year, including all-in Las Vegas getaways, pick-your-destination vacations and suite tickets and weekend activities at the NASCAR Federated 400 in Richmond.

“The Federated Suite-Stakes gives us the opportunity to award thousands of prizes to Federated customers,” said Moore. “More importantly, we have built an annual program that can help Federated members, customers and vendors grow together at a whole new level.”
