Water and sanitation worker walks away with new Volvo after final Bud Light Street Beat free concert in Vail

An Eagle County Water and Sanitation District employee was positively gushing Thursday night in Vail. District Geographic Information Specialist (GIS) Meaghan Long of Vail drove away from the final Bud Light Street Beat free concert of the winter in a brand new Volvo C30T5 as the season-long grand prize winner.

Meaghan Long of Vail celebrates her new Volvo with Vail Mayor Dick Cleveland.

Long was one of eight contestants called to the stage to participate in the game of chance to win the Volvo. The names were drawn from a box filled with all the entry forms that had been filled out at each free show throughout the winter. Long admitted later that she only had two entries in the box.

With only two contestants remaining, Long's blue disk came up a winner when the roulette wheel stopped on her color.

When asked where she would drive her new Volvo, Long replied, “Where am I not going to drive it?”

In addition to the Volvo Grand Prize Giveaway, the evening's festivities also included an 80's costume contest and music courtesy of the The Champions, an 80's arena rock cover band.

The Bud Light Street Beat free concert series is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information on the Foundation or Bud Light Street Beat, visit www.vvf.org.
