With 35,000 entries from 10,000 contestants, Las Vegas-based KTNV's “Win a Mini Cooper for the Holidays Giveaway” now has a declared winner.
A Mr. Gene White of Las Vegas was selected out of 17 finalists Saturday morning in the KTNV parking lot.
Gene is giving the MINI to his wife, Lori of 29 years. It is her first new car.
He entered the contest 11 times throughout the month of November, and the win comes on the heels of his recovery from esophageal cancer. Gene didn’t have much to say other than "It feels pretty darn good."
"I think we're in a dream," added Lori White.
Gene White is a musician who has been living and performing the Las Vegas area for more than 30 years. He's been the musical director at casinos in Las Vegas and Laughlin and produced a show at the old Aladdin hotel-casino.
