CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carol Simms of Springdale, Ohio, received the ultimate Bengals fan prize courtesy of Fifth Third Bank, The Official Bank of the Cincinnati Bengals. From July 28th through October 17th, thousands of Bengals fans visited Fifth Third Bank retail locations throughout Cincinnati, Dayton and Northern Kentucky, registering for the “Move Into The Jungle” sweepstakes. NO PURCHASE WAS NECESSARY. The prize: Twenty years of Cincinnati Bengals season tickets in Section 124, Row 20, Seats 1 and 2, for the 2015 through 2034 seasons.
Carol, accompanied by her husband, Ken, and grandson Corban, attended Bengals practice at Paul Brown Stadium and were presented with ceremonial tickets by Coach Marvin Lewis and Nate Pasczcykowski, Marketing Director for Fifth Third Bank (Cincinnati). Bengals players were on hand to offer their congratulations.
“It’s amazing to be the winners, in all of Cincinnati, of the Fifth Third Bank ‘Move Into The Jungle’ sweepstakes!,” Carol stated. “My husband Ken's first reaction was total disbelief. The fact that it's 20 years of season tickets to Bengals games blows our minds! We've never won anything close to this. And, I've especially admired the impact Coach Lewis has had on the team during his tenure. We are so excited and thankful for winning this gift. GO BENGALS!”
“I expect that there might be a little competition in the Simms household over who gets to attend the games each week,” stated Mike Michael, President and CEO of Fifth Third Bank (Cincinnati). “When you’re a Bengals season ticket holder, Paul Brown Stadium and the Jungle Zone are like your second home. We’re excited for Carol and her family as they prepare to ‘Move Into The Jungle’ for the next twenty years.”
Early this season, Cincinnati’s “Hometown Team” and “Hometown Bank” announced the continuation of a contractual relationship, forged in 2009. Fifth Third Bank will continue to serve as “The Official Bank of the Cincinnati Bengals” through the 2019-20 NFL season.
