Wisconsin philanthropist wins AMP Research contest

Apr 17, 2013

Bobbi Jo Wnuk of Bonduel, Wis., was named the winner of the first “Great American Giveaway” sponsored by AMP Research, a supplier of car and truck accessories based in Tustin, Calif., and by Motorz, a DIY automotive improvement series.

The contest that launched Feb. 1 had entrants provide information about an exemplary American who owns a pickup truck and goes the extra mile to serve his or her family, friends, community or country, for the chance to win an AMP Research PowerStep system and a choice of one of three other AMP Research products.

“We received so many excellent entries that it was very tough for us to choose just one winner,” said Mark Wronski, marketing director at AMP Research. “Bobbi’s entry stood out because of the extensive volunteer work she does, the way she uses her truck, and the benefits the AMP Research products can provide in making her life and her volunteer work a little bit easier. Bobbi is truly a great American, and we are thrilled to be able to award her this prize package.”

Wnuk drives a 2009 Ford F-150 and does a great deal to help the special education department at the Wisconsin Bonduel School District. She also helps with homecare for the elderly and disabled in the community, heads up a benefit for a neighbor fighting cancer and serves as a volunteer for nonprofits that support individuals affected by autism. Along the way, she puts her F-150 through some rough Wisconsin driving conditions, according to Motorz.

Wnuk, who was entered into the contest by her nephew Jason Heinz, will receive a AMP Research PowerStep system and the BedXtender HD.

“This contest was developed to improve the lives of truck owners that help others,” stated Chris Duke, host and executive producer of “Motorz.” “We want to thank the people who make a difference, to recognize them and support the good work they are doing.”

The next contest runs through June 1. To submit an entry, visit http://www.motorz.tv/win-amp/.
