Cablevision Giving Away a Chrysler


One month after running a promotion where it was to give away 1,000 gallons of gas, Cablevision Systems Corp. said it will give away a 2006 Chrysler 300C through a sweepstakes for its Optimum Autos classified service.

Subscribers can enter the sweepstakes on the Optimum Autos site ( Interactive Optimum digital-cable customers can also access Optimum Autos and enter the sweepstakes on channel 605.

Cablevision said five finalists and alternates will get two tickets to the Aug. 14 New York Liberty Women’s National Basketball Association game at company-owned Madison Square Garden.

The grand-prize winner will be selected randomly at a “key-turning event” to be held the day of the game, the MSO added.

In June, Cablevision ran a promotion for Optimum Autos in which it said it would award 1,000 gallons of gas to the winner.

Cablevision spokeswoman Marie Stenberg said Friday that the winner of the free-gas promotion will be announced soon.
