New Port Richey, Florida-- Sharon McCullough is officially the winner of a brand new Kia Soul from Friendly Kia of New Port Richey!

Over the past month, 10 News ran a contest on our Facebook page, during which we encouraged our viewers to log on up to three times a day to post a key word mentioned in our newscasts for the opportunity to win the brand new car.

After receiving tons of entries from all of our loyal viewers, we narrowed it down to five contestants: Vivian Bancroft from Largo, Wendy Breton from Spring Hill, Ellen Ellis of Tampa, Sharon McCullough of St. Pete and William Schork from Safety Harbor.

The five contestants joined 10 News and John Gillis, the president of Friendly Kia, for free food, tons of fun, and of course, the final drawing at the dealership in New Port Richey.

After much anticipation, Reginald Roundtree drew Sharon McCullough's name from the box, and declared her the rightful owner of the beautiful, brand new 2013 Kia Soul.

"I really needed this car! Thank you 10 News; thank you Friendly Kia, and John," Sharon shouted as she cried tears of excitement. "It pays to watch 10 News!"
