ZooMontana in Contest to Win Car

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

ZooMontana is in the running to win a new car from Toyota, and you can help the organization win.

Toyota's 100 Cars for Good contest has chosen 250 non-profits across the US to be eligible for a chance to win a vehicle of their choice. ZooMontana was chosen as one of the non-profits for the 50-day contest. Each day, five organizations will be featured and people can cast their top vote of the five. The top two from each day will get a car.

If ZooMontana wins, executive director Jeff Ewelt says a Prius V is the top choice for a car.

"Basically what that's going to allow us to do is of course load up our animals in that, some of our smaller animals," Ewelt said. "Some of our outreach we do kind of on each corner of the state. It's a big state. We do a lot of traveling. It would allow us to go to meetings in Helena a lot cheaper than using our big van."

Voting starts November 7. You can visit ZooMontana's Facebook page or click on Connections for the link to vote.
