Los Angeles--Retailer Robbins Brothers wanted to celebrate the season of love and giving in a big way.

In November, it launched its Epic Holiday Adventure Giveaway, where consumers were invited to enter to win one of three grand prizes valued at $100,000 total from early November to Dec. 22.

Their options were a 2015 Indian Cruiser motorcycle customized by Gas Monkey Garage; a seven-day getaway for two to a private island resort in Fiji; or a $10,000 dream wedding cash prize.

The company received a total of 22,000 eligible entries, with nearly half of all entrants (49 percent) registering to win the $10,000 prize. Another 34 percent wanted to go to Fiji while the remaining 17 percent registered to win the bike.

Entrants were allowed to enter once every day until the end of the contest. Winners were chosen randomly.

“The Robbins Brothers Epic Holiday Adventure was the biggest giveaway in our 97-year history,” President and CEO Andy Heyneman said. “We were excited to launch this promotion and enjoyed witnessing the in-store and online buzz from customers and employees alike. This promotion was in concert with our mission of celebrating couples in love and providing them with amazing experiences and memories to last a lifetime.”

Valerie Fuentes of Houston was the winner of the all-inclusive Fiji getaway, where she and her husband will have the chance to enjoy a private island with ocean views, luxury accommodations and exclusive experiences, all while surrounded by a rainforest.

Fuentes and her husband have been married for eight years, and just finalized a stepparent adoption last month, so they will use the trip as their celebratory getaway, she told Robbins Brothers.  

The $10,000 cash prize went to Judy Gallo of Fontana, California. Gallo and her fiancé, Luis Godoy, are high school sweethearts who will use the money to bring their dream wedding to life, Robbins Brothers said.

Meanwhile, the 2015 Indian Cruiser went to adventure lover Drew Krausen.

The San Jose resident said he had to sell his old bike to help pay some bills when his wife was pregnant and didn’t know when he’d be able to get another one. He entered the Epic Holiday Adventure Giveaway every day for his chance to win the motorcycle.

“As soon as the weather permits, I'd like to take it for a ride around the Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve in San Jose,” he told the retailer.

Robbins Brothers has 15 stores across Arizona, California, Texas and Washington.
