SEATTLE — At Honda and Toyota of Seattle in Sodo, there are balloons, a huge cake, and the biggest party favor of all, a check for five thousand dollars, being held by a smiling Tim Miller, GM of Honda of Seattle. The person who's about to get that check? The winning voter in Best of Western Washington: Rebecca Mitchell of Seattle.

"Rebecca, on behalf of Honda and Toyota of Seattle we'd like to congratulate you," Miller said, handing over the check as the crew at Honda and Toyota of Seattle launched confetti and cheered. 

Miller asked: "So Rebecca, everyone wants to know, what are you going to spend the five thousand dollars on?"

Rebecca already knows exactly what she will do with her winnings:

"I'm super excited, my fiance just proposed two weeks ago, so we're saving for a house, I'm very excited, hopefully in the next year or two."

Thanks to the crew at Honda and Toyota of Seattle for throwing a great party. And congratulations to Best of Western Washington winner Rebecca Mitchell - who now has five-thousand dollars worth of proof that every vote counts!
