Union 76 pumped out some real cash to its gas credit cardholders this week. The firm awarded a check in the amount of $76,000 to Virginia Marquez, a resident of Fountain Valley, California and a student at California State University of Fullerton. She was the grand prize winner in the national 76 Gasoline “Destined to Win” sweepstakes. The national contest automatically entered customers who used their 76 credit cards during February and March to win one of hundreds of fortune-telling ’76 Destiny Balls’, free gas for one year, or the $76,000 grand prize. The 76 station in Garden Grove, CA will also receive $1,000 in prize money to split between the employees for being the site that sold the winning tank of gasoline.
