Rochester, N.Y. In the Spring of 2016, 13WHAM ABC partnered with Tandoi Asphalt & Sealcoating to give away a driveway to one deserving family in the Rochester area during a photo contest called ‘The Great Pave Off’.
Between May 16 and June 3, 50 local families submitted photos of their ugly, cracked and unseemly driveways, and a short paragraph on why they needed their driveway fixed. By the end there were 2,199 votes cast from 552 participants.
After a heated battle, Sherry Sweet of Scottsville pulled through as the Grand Prize winner. Her driveway submission received 898 votes, only 35 votes more than runner-up Kevin Carpenter. Carpenter received a $500 voucher towards driveway installation services
Sweet won a $2,500 voucher toward the installation of her new driveway.
