YORK, Pa. -- Rutter’s Farm Stores named the final two winners of free gasoline for one year in its "Fuel Up Free!" contest—Lori Pauline of New Freedom, Pa., and Adam Dill of York, are the seventh and eight winners, respectively, the company reported.
The sole remaining prize is a Harley-Davidson Iron 883 motorcycle, courtesy of the convenience store chain and hot dog maker Kunzler & Co., and the winner will be chosen from among all of the non-gas-winning entries submitted during the contest, which ran May 25 to Aug. 30.
Each of the winners, eight in total, were chosen through a random drawing, and participating contest sponsors are Pepsi Cola, Coca-Cola, Cadbury Canada Dry, Function Beverage, Snapple, Red Bull, Edy’s Grand Ice Cream, Jack and Jill Ice Cream, Nestle Waters NA, Pennsylvania Lottery, Kunzler & Co., S&D Coffee and Rutter’s Dairy.

Rutter’s Children’s Charities is the charitable arm of the Rutter’s Cos., comprised of Rutter’s Farm Stores, Rutter’s Dairy and real estate development company M&G Realty.
"Even as we see signs that the economy is improving, it’s still a tough time for nonprofit groups and the people they serve," Scott Hartman, president of Rutter’s Farm Stores, said in a statement. "It’s our privilege at Rutter’s to help these organizations to fulfill their valuable missions."

"We feel it’s more important than ever for companies such as ours that are successful to give back to the communities that support us," added Todd Rutter, president of Rutter’s Dairy.
"We’ve chosen these organizations because of their successful track records of providing food to people in need."
