Prius giveaway at Wyland Galleries

The Wyland Foundation will host a live drawing for a Toyota Prius c Hybrid at noon Saturday at Wyland Galleries, 509 S. Coast Hwy., to celebrate those who participated in last month's National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation, according to a press release.

Mayor Jane Egly, artist Wyland and Michael Rouse, vice president of corporate philanthropy for Toyota are expected to be on hand.


Laguna Beach and Manhattan Beach were both honored as two of 12 national winners in the campaign, which encouraged residents in 50 states to make online pledges promising to conserve water, save energy and reduce pollution over the course of the next year, the release said.

Participating residents from chosen cities are eligible to win more than $50,000 in prizes, including the grand prize of a Toyota Prius c Hybrid (the winner will not necessarily be from Laguna), custom-designed sprinkler systems from Rain Bird, eco-flow showerheads from WaterPik, water-saving toilets from Sterling Plumbing, and 1,000 gift cards for Lowe's Home Improvement stores.

An additional drawing for a Wyland artwork will be held exclusively for Laguna Beach and Manhattan Beach residents who participated in the challenge.

All individual prize winners, except for the Prius and Wyland artwork, will be notified May 22.

For more information, contact the foundation at (949) 643-7070 ext. 283.
