Gringo’s Mexican Kitchen Gives Back (Big) to Associates with Contest for Cash and a Chevy Camaro!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – HOUSTON – One lucky Gringo’s associate walked away with a 2010 Chevy Camaro this past Saturday as part of Gringo’s Holiday Sales Contest. In appreciation of their hard work during the holidays, ten eligible associates from “The Original” Gringo’s in Pearland were given the opportunity to win cash or a Chevy Camaro during a “Deal or No Deal”-style game held at the restaurant.

“I wanted to show my heartfelt appreciation for the individuals who put in the time and sweat to make Gringo’s a success,” said Russell Ybarra, founder and president of Gringo’s Mexican Kitchen. “January 11 marks the 17th year we’ve been in business, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without the commitment and dedication of our managers and associates.”

The Gringo’s corporate team set up the event at “The Original” Pearland location where the ten lucky associates were drawn to play the game for a chance at winning a key that would start the Chevy Camaro. Throughout the game, players were given the opportunity to forego the chance at the car for cash. Cash amounts varying from $1,000, $2,500, $3,000, up to $5,000 were sealed in unmarked folders.

In Round 1, three players chose $1,000 instead of a key; two players were eliminated (one player had a key that did not start the car). Round 2, one player opened a folder with $2,500 cash, and another player was eliminated with a “no key” folder. For Round 3, one player opened a folder with $3,000 and two other players revealed folders with a key and without a key. Crystal Childs had the winning key that started the car, winning $25,000 toward a 2010 Chevy Camaro.
