Amid much fanfare, CAO Cigars year-long Sucker Punch Sally’s Lady Liberty motorcycle giveaway culminated last weekend with a huge motorcycle and cigar bash at the CAO headquarters in Nashville. All seven semi-finalists were flown in to Music City USA and put up by CAO at the posh Hermitage Hotel, in historic downtown.

Saturday was the big day where one lucky winner would be walking away with the keys to one of the most coveted giveaway bikes of 2009-2010. The party was in full swing by 10 am at CAO headquarters where the public was encouraged to show up and support the semi-finalists, have some food and drink and enjoy a cigar. Everyone that showed up got a CAO gift pack complete with cigars, lighter, cutter and SPS/CAO co-branded t-shirt.

“We really wanted to throw a party that allowed the general public to come and see our facility, meet some of the staff and celebrate the culmination of what we believe is one of our most successful promotional campaigns. Having Cigar Dave here to broadcast it live really allowed everyone to be a part of the festivities by simply tuning in,” said Jon Huber.

Cigar Dave “The General” did his weekly broadcast from the premises and was joined by numerous cigar personalities as well as local songwriter John Rich. Through a process of elimination live on the air, semi-finalists names were picked in order to eliminate them from the running and receive runners-up prizes. It came down to two finalists, Keith Henninger and Bob Maurer, in the end Bob was the first runner up and Keith walked away the big winner with the CAO Cigar SPS Lady Liberty custom motorcycle.

“This is a great partnership, cigars and motorcycles compliment each other and we look forward to doing more with CAO in the future,” said Christian Clayton of Sucker Punch Sally’s.
