NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Long Island native, Alexa Colao won Wendy’s® New York Giants Jr. Reporter Sweepstakes and interviewed Giants Wide Receiver Darius Slayton for the team’s social media outlets. She and her family enjoyed the ultimate touchdown of prizes which included an exclusive tour of the Giants practice facilities and MetLife Stadium, a signed Daniel Jones helmet, a $500 Wendy’s gift card, and four suite level tickets to the Giants game on October 22.

Ahead of the October 22nd game, Wendy’s hosted a celebratory lunch at its American Dream location for all 10 finalists and their families from all around the New York and New Jersey area. The lunch was complete with a surprise appearance by former Giants Linebacker, Jonathan Castillas, who signed autographs, posed for pictures, and answered questions from the kids.

All of the kids, with help from their parents or guardian, entered the sweepstakes using an online form via the New York Giants website with winners chosen at random.
