Huseby contest winners going to Super Bowl, Hornets games
Our pug has a name and we have a Super Bowl winner!
In our name-the-pug contest, we received lots of entries. One in particular made a lucky person eligible for Super Bowl tickets. Our pug is now called Pugsley and the person who suggested that name is Mara Woods of McGuireWoods LLP in Charlotte.
Huseby’s Super Bowl contest was open to clients in the Charlotte market to celebrate the Panthers’ run to the Super Bowl. The Panther pug -- now Puglsey -- is the newest member of the Huseby family.
Ms. Woods, with McGuireWoods LLP in Charlotte, had the option of taking two Super Bowl 50 tickets or three courtside tickets to two different Charlotte Hornets games. She chose the Super Bowl tickets. She's going to be in Levi's Stadium on Feb. 7 to see the Panthers take on the Broncos.
Second place went to Debbie Cook of Smith Moore Leatherwood. Ms. Cook won three seats to an upcoming Hornets home game. Third place, which is two seats to any upcoming Hornets home game, went to Bernard Tisdale of Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C.
Here’s a little Q&A with the first-place winner, Mara Woods.
