“We couldn't be more excited about this new partnership and giveaway with EMU Athletics,” said Emmanuel Boykin, Executive Manager of Lafontaine Buick GMC of Ann Arbor.  “This is a great opportunity for EMU fans to win an amazing vehicle, and for us to introduce ourselves to the Ypsilanti community as the premier dealership in Washtenaw County."
