Bud Light did more this NFL season than give fans the catchy saying “Dilly Dilly!”
Thanks to the beer company, a North Carolina woman is headed to the Super Bowl – for the next 30 years.
Amy Stonger, of Gastonia, went to a convenience store during the NFL season, where she saw a sweepstakes to win Super Bowl tickets “for life” advertised on a case of Bud Light.
Stonger bought the beer, entered the contest and was notified a few weeks ago that she had won.
“I was literally in shock. My mouth dropped,” she said. “I even responded to the email. I was like ‘Are you for real?’ because I certainly never expected anything like this.”
For the next few decades, Stonger and three other friends will attend the big game.
Stonger, a New Orleans Saints fan originally from New York, said she’s looking forward to witnessing the game every year in person.
She’ll get started Friday, when she she’ll travel to Minnesota donning Bud Light apparel with the company’s popular “Dilly Dilly” phrase on it.
As for the outcome of Sunday’s game, Stonger will be rooting for the New England Patriots to beat the Philadelphia Eagles.
