FULLERTON, CA (Nov. 16, 2012) – Yokohama Tire Corporation (YTC) is giving away more than 400 free tickets to the Los Angeles Auto Show, which will be held at the LA Convention Center from November 30 through December 9. YTC, the “Official Tire of the LA Auto Show,” is conducting a contest on Facebook where lucky consumers can win tickets – including some to Sneak Preview Night – by entering at www.facebook.com/yokohamatirecorp

YTC’s LA Auto Show ticket contest runs through November 25 and is available to all Southern California residents, according to Theresa Palang, Yokohama manager of public relations and digital marketing. “As a major sponsor of the show for the past seven years, we want to help create excitement and engage consumers. This will be fun for all involved.”

Palang said 100 winners will receive a four-pack of tickets good for any day during the show’s two-week run. Five winners will be chosen for the grand prize: two $125 tickets to Sneak Preview Night on November 29. “This is the LA Auto Show’s festive charity event,” said Palang. “Consumers can enjoy hors d’oeuvres and get a behind-the-scenes preview of the cars before the show opens to the public. It’s a great way to beat the crowds and be part of a worthy cause.”
