Quote from Lisa Kusey-Rechsteiner Graff Chevrolet, Inc. General Manager on the success of the initiative:
"We weren't really sure what to expect. We knew that the Great Lakes Bay Region has many adorable babies, but weren't sure as to how many photos would be entered into the contest. What a terrific community turn out! We received over 560 baby photos to enter into the contest. Many of these photos still receive daily visits and
comments on Facebook yet today, which is two weeks after the contest conclusion. This couldn't have been facilitated without the help of our internal T.E.C. (text, email, call) Center and our website company Xspond out of Brighton, Michigan."
Congratulations to Graff Chevrolet!
