Budget Launches Family Vacation Sweepstakes
Parsippany, NJ Apr 25, 2006 -

Budget Rent A Car System, Inc. today announced the launch of the Budget Family Vacation Sweepstakes in support of its sponsorship of the Tom Joyner Morning Show Sky Shows.  The Sky Shows are a series of live remote broadcasts of the nation’s #1 syndicated urban morning radio program.  Now through December 1, 2006, Budget customers and Tom Joyner fans can enter to win a trip for four to sunny Orlando, Florida.  The prize includes round-trip air transportation, hotel accommodations for three nights, a Budget car rental and four admissions passes to a top Orlando theme park. 

Through the end of the year, Budget will also offer Tom Joyner Morning Show listeners a discount on weekly and weekend rates while raising money for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).  For every completed rental made in connection with the Tom Joyner Sky Show discount promotion, Budget will donate $1.00 to the Tom Joyner Foundation, which helps students continue their education by providing money directly to HBCUs. 

“Last year’s Sky Show sponsorship was so well received by Budget renters and Tom Joyner’s loyal listener base that we raised $10,000 for the Tom Joyner Foundation,” said Scott Deaver, executive vice president of marketing for Avis Budget Car Rental LLC, parent of Budget.  “We’re proud to continue our support of the HBCUs.”

To enter the sweepstakes or for more information, fans need to visit www.budget.com/skyshow.  No purchase is necessary.  One winner will be selected at random on or around December 15, 2006.
