As bad weather season draws near and consumers begin to winterize their vehicles, Advance Auto Parts stores are offering DuPont Teflon SHIELD wiper blades at a discount, and a portion of the sale of each pair sold will be donated to the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation, to support children battling cancer. From Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, consumers also can enter a sweepstakes to win an all-expenses-paid NASCAR 2012 weekend and to meet Jeff Gordon.

Teflon SHIELD wiper blades, engineered by Trico, conform to today’s highly curved windshields and provide drivers with a quieter wipe, longer blade life and greater visibility. A hinged shell helps eliminate snow and ice-clogging.

Teflon SHIELD wiper blades are sold under the DuPont Teflon brand as licensed by DuPont. Teflon surface protector helps shield the wiping element from extreme temperatures and significantly reduces friction and improves wear resistance. Available in stores nationally and online, Advance Auto Parts is offering a special promotion so consumers can buy one Teflon SHIELD wiper blade, and get 50 percent off the second one.

Consumers also can enter to win an exciting 2012 NASCAR weekend. Two prize packages will be awarded that include a trip for two to a 2012 NASCAR race, VIP pit passes, a meeting with Jeff Gordon and more. For information, rules, and regulations and to enter, visit www.teflon.com/carcare.

The Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation envisions that there will be a day when no child will face the uncertainty of cancer, and that successful treatments will not result in negative, long-term effects.  The Foundation funds programs that improve patients’ quality of life and treatment programs that increase survivorship and pediatric medical research dedicated to finding a cure.  The Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital seeks to serve as a model for providing the highest level of care to all children, regardless of their ability to pay.  For additional information, visit www.jeffgordonchildrensfoundation.org.
