As a way to say thanks to those who build our world, we helped Cat Product Support develop and launch a vote-to-win contest as part of their “Say Thanks” campaign. The contest was open to any individual or business owning Cat equipment.

Over roughly a six-week period, submissions comprised of videos and letters expressing why the nominated Cat customer deserved recognition for his or her hard work poured in. Dudley Construction Inc. was selected the winner—receiving over 10,000 votes. The prize? A pizza party with Mike Rowe!

Today, Mr. Rowe traveled to the Kentucky-based dealer’s site, where he literally delivered pizza and ate lunch with the employees of Dudley Construction. But that wasn’t the only highlight of the trip—Caterpillar surprised winning Cat customer, Mark List, by flying in two of List’s sons who had originally told their dad they weren’t able to attend. List and his wife have 11 children total, so it was a happy family reunion as well. More cause for celebration.

We were on hand to capture the entire event (check out the awesome video below). Congrats to the winner!
