ORLANDO, Fla. (January 3, 2014) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE:WYN), awarded a brand new luxury car to Hollis Cox during the fourth drawing in the Company’s Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes. In an event that took place at Wyndham Ocean Boulevard, company executives presented Hollis, of Iberville, La., with a 2014 Lexus ISC.
“When I first received the call telling me I had won, I thought it was friends playing a trick on me,” said Hollis Cox. “You never know people who actually win a car; they’re just a name on a list.”
Hollis soon realized the call wasn’t a joke as plans were made for him to attend the prize presentation in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Hollis, a CLUB WYNDHAM® owner since 2012, was joined by his daughter, also a CLUB WYNDHAM owner, and two grandchildren for the special event.
“Hollis’ story is illustrative of the value of owning with Wyndham,” said Jeff Myers, WVO’s chief sales & marketing officer. “Hollis realized the benefit of ownership after traveling with his daughter’s points. Since he purchased last year, he’s used his own points to spend time with his mother, children and grandchildren. Making memories is truly the purpose of vacation ownership, and it’s a great day when we can provide such a wonderful family with yet another amazing memory.”
In August 2013, during a stay at Wyndham Riverside Suites, Hollis was entered into the sweepstakes. In September, his name was randomly drawn from more than 90,000 entries.
Owners and guests were automatically entered in Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes when they attended a sales presentation or owner update at a participating resort. Previous winners of the sweepstakes were George and Judy Maykowskyj of Colbert, Wash.; Chris and Melissa Todd of Humboldt, Tenn.; and Wydea Winters of Charlotte, N.C.
