WEVax To Win Prize List Gets a Major Boost! 

Thousands Have Already Signed Up to Win

Two lucky individuals will be driving away with a 2021 Chrysler Pacifica as winners in the WEVax To Win contest. Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens and Essex County Warden Gary McNamara announced the addition of the two vehicles to the prize list today while standing next to one of the Pacificas. 

“These are Windsor-made vehicles, secured from local dealerships, that will be won by local residents – resulting in a win-win-win for our local community,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “This is an important time in our community’s fight against COVID-19, and it is vital that eligible residents be vaccinated to slow the spread of the virus and the highly transmissible Delta variant. Vaccinations are how we beat back a fourth wave, avoid lockdowns, protect community safety, and secure our local economic recovery. This contest serves as an incentive for everyone to simply do the right thing.”

The Chrysler Pacifica is the most awarded minivan on the market, having been recognized for its safety, engine quality and family-friendly status. In launching the hybrid version, the Chrysler Pacifica has provided environmentally conscious consumers with minivan-sized electric vehicle (EV) optionality. Stellantis, manufacturer of the Chrysler Pacifica, employs over 4,400 in Windsor.

The contest, which was launched on September 1, 2021, to boost our region’s COVID-19 vaccination rate, while simultaneously supporting our local economy, offers fully vaccinated Windsor-Essex residents the chance to win over $200,000 in prizes.

The first draw will take place on October 1, 2021, and random draws will continue on a weekly basis thereafter.
