GAF Announces Winners of “Ride of a Lifetime” Sweepstakes

GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has announced the winners of its “Ride of a Lifetime” contest, where one grand prize winner received a Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Ultra Motorcycle. Five first prize winners received $500 Visa® prepaid gift cards.

Jonathan Wolf, president of Tecta America Zero Company LLC in Cincinnati, Ohio, was the grand prize winner of the motorcycle. “You can’t believe how surprised and excited I was when the call came in. I was totally caught off guard and initially thought my friends were playing a trick on me,” Wolf stated. “I sold my last Harley about seven years ago and had recently been getting the itch to get another one – what amazing timing! The entire experience was only made better when I found out the Harley was coming from our long-time partner at GAF. GAF has been our shingle supplier of choice for many years because of the high quality of their products and superior level of customer service. Coincidentally, they are now my wife’s favorite as well.” 

Winners of the $500 gift cards included Arthur Frank of Illinois; Kevin Cartwright of Wisconsin; Curt Reeff of North Dakota; Michael Loschke of Missouri; and Jeremie Rice of Minnesota. 

The sweepstakes ran from May 1 through June 30, 2012, and was open to residents in Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, and Missouri who were professional roofing contractors or builders/remodelers and 21 years of age or older.
