Illinois Farm Bureau Member Wins Big in Ford Sweepstakes

CHICAGO — DeKalb County resident Lisa Smith has a new ride thanks to Illinois Farm Bureau (IFB) and Ford. Smith, who is a member of the DeKalb County Farm Bureau, received a two-year lease on a new 2017 Ford F-150 when her name was drawn in the “Haul in a Winner” sweepstakes. 

“My reaction when I won the truck was, ‘Oh my goodness, this is unbelievable!’” Smith said. “It was so exciting, and I couldn’t really fathom it. It was just unreal.” 

The sweepstakes, which was open to Farm Bureau members in nine states, received nearly 14,000 entries. 

“It’s great to have a local person win the sweepstakes this year," said Greg Millburg, manager, DeKalb County Farm Bureau. “And It’s nice to have the relationship we do with Ford at the state level, as well as the county level, and to work with a local dealer, and with the Ford dealerships out there, on the rebates that Ford provides for Illinois Farm Bureau members.” 

In addition to the “Haul in a Winner” sweepstakes, now in its third year, Illinois Farm Bureau members also are eligible for a $500 discount on the purchase of new Ford vehicles. 

“We’re so appreciative of the partnership we have with Ford and their willingness to work with our members to provide discounts simply because they’re members of the Illinois Farm Bureau,” said Melissa Rhode, marketing director, IFB. “Ford Motor Company has been an important part of our Member Benefit Program for nearly a decade and we’re extremely proud of that partnership because, just like our members, Ford trucks work hard.” 

Members interested in entering this year’s “Haul in a Winner” sweepstakes may sign up now through Sept. 30, 2018 at or text SWEEPS to 46786. Ford will award one Farm Bureau member with a two-year lease on a 2018 Ford F-150. 

No purchase, test drive or sales presentation is necessary to enter or win the sweepstakes; a purchase will not increase entrants’ chances of winning. For full eligibility requirements, visit
