Cape Coral, Fla. - For weeks we've been hearing about Billy Fucillo's million dollar giveaway. He set out to sell more than one thousand cars in March, giving one thousand dollars to each person buying a car. Now that March is over, the prizes have been passed out and the numbers are in. We went to the giveaway party to see if Billy hit his million dollar mark.
Wrapping up his Million dollar March giveaway, Billy Fucillo threw a party the only way he knows how -
"Just one word, its gonna be huge"
Troy Hammet from Cape Coral says he rarely enters radio giveaways, but decided to give this one a shot.
"I can't win if Im not here, so I decided I needed to come on out and I got lucky"
He was chosen to play whats in Billy's briefcase,
"I was the last one to go, I had seen everybody else had opened their briefcase, I had no idea what I had."
and inside he found a jet ski
"We're giving away ski doos, trips to the bahams, trips to miami, its juts a really good event people are pumped up about it"
But did Billy make it to his one million dollar mark?
"We ended up cutting checks back to our customers for 1.7 million dollars, thats right"
Something Troy says he can definitely appreciate.
"Him giving back is a great thing... its huge"
By selling 1700 cars Fucillo broke his own world record for the most kias sold in one month. Along with the jet ski the giveaway included new cars, shopping sprees, and even a stay at the world famous Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. Everything given away today came out to be worth more than 140,000 dollars in cash and prizes.
