Strack & Van Til celebrates the Big Game Selfie Winner

On February 7, Tremaine Hargon and a guest are headed to SuperBowl 50 for this year’s big game to be held in Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Tremaine was this year’s winner of the Big Game Selfie promotion being held at all Strack & Van Til, Ultra Foods and Town and Country stores throughout Chi- cagoland, in partnership with Pepsi, Frito Lay and Bud Light.

Tremaine was shopping in the Strack & Van Til store at 2627 N. Elston Ave. when he decided to snap a quick selfie with the promotional signage in the store and post it to the Strack & Van Til Facebook page. “My wife and I both did it” said Tremaine, and “I figured if anyone was going to win, it would be her.” Hargon, a city of Chicago Firefighter, has chosen his wife to be his guest at the big game. When asked who he was rooting for Tremaine said “well I’m rooting for Carolina but…” and his wife Erin quickly chimed in “I’m rooting for Denver.” It should make for an interesting game!

He was selected randomly from a group of “Big Game Selfie” participants. Tremaine has won airfare (for 2), 3 Nights stay at Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf and (2) SuperBowl Tickets, along with $200 in spending cash, a once in a lifetime price package.

You can follow his journey to the Big Game by visiting the Strack & Van Til, Ultra Foods or Town and Country Facebook pages.

Strack & Van Til Vice President, Chris Bengtson said “Tre and his wife are fantastic, and we’re so proud to be sending one of Chicago’s finest first responders to the Big Game. He’ll be tagging us on Facebook, and we’re all excited to be with him on the trip through social media.”

The Big Game Selfie was the finale of Strack & Van Til’s Blitz into Savings promotion that ran during the regular football season in all Strack & Van Til, Ultra Foods and Town and Country stores throughout Chicagoland.
