Elliott Oil and Synchrony Financial "Check One Off Bucket List"

During the BPAMA Convention held in Miami, Synchrony Financial sponsored a Slot Car Racing competition.  It was a huge hit with customers and the winner received an all-expense paid trip for two to this year’s Indianapolis 500.   


    

The official winner was Andrew Woodard from Elliott Oil Company in Ottumwa, Iowa.  Andrew had a lot of help during the competition from his 8 year old daughter Augusta, who graciously accepted the prize on stage smiling from ear to ear and excited about the chance to go on a trip to Indianapolis to see a race with her Dad.

Augusta has a close relative, Bruce, back in Ottumwa who has been battling cancer for a number of years and when she shared they won the trip he was thrilled.  Attending the Indy 500 has been on a bucket list for Bruce; when Augusta and her Dad, Andrew, learned of that they graciously offered their weekend race package to Bruce.

Bruce received notice a couple of days prior to leaving on the trip that he has been cleared of all cancer.
 
Thank you Synchrony team for making this lifetime memory possible and thank you for being a great partner.
