During the Black Friday Drive Away promotion, Hamilton Mall partnered with 95.1 WAYV and Matt Blat Kia of Egg Harbor Township to giveaway a 24-month lease on a 2016 Kia Optima LX. Each finalist received a box with a prize in it, but only one box had a key fob to unlock the 2016 Kia Optima LX. Congratulations to our winner Kimberly of Egg Harbor Township.
