LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- One skilled fan's life became $20,000 richer when el Jimador Tequila "Your Shot at $1 Million" program awarded Bryce Pigott, from Gilbert, Arizona, the prize after he successfully kicked a penalty shot against U.S. National and Everton goalkeeper, Tim Howard. Five sweepstakes winners were given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a penalty shot against Howard, and then a shot for the chance to win $1 million dollars. Tim Howard's charity partner the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome, prevailed as the ultimate winner collecting $105,000 in funds raised for the organization.
Randomly selected from more than 100,000 entries for the "Your Shot at $1 Million Dollars" program, the other four sweepstakes winners included Andy Acton of Rochester, NY, Dana Elaine of Philadelphia, PA, Matt Gold of Denver, CO and Alex Varela of Dallas, TX. They were all flown to New York along with a guest and had an opportunity to meet Tim Howard, attend the U.S. vs. Costa Rica game on Oct. 13, and enjoy some of New York's hot spots, courtesy of el Jimador Tequila.
"Since becoming an active soccer sponsor, we've been committed to offering adult consumers once-in-a-lifetime experiences that go beyond soccer matches and bring fans closer to their favorite players," said Ed Carias, Senior Brand Manager, el Jimador. "'Your Shot' has been one of the most successful programs to date and we could not have had a better partner than Tim Howard who is as passionate about his craft, as we are about making quality tequila."
The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome, where Howard serves on the board, received funds raised throughout the program by adult consumers who used #KICKTS hashtag in their social media posts as well as $20,000 awarded for each shot blocked by Howard totaling $105,000.
