Drum roll please! Today, Cathy McCarthy is going to share a little about her experience getting to the Oprah premiere last month! Like I said before, it was such a coincidence when I tuned in that day, because I’ve known Cathy since I was a little girl!
My friends and I had the greatest experience thanks to Oprah and Chevrolet.
We were given a new, red, Chevrolet Traverse to road trip to Chicago to be on the premier Oprah Farewell Season show.
Six of us left from Brockton, MA to travel to Niagara Falls, NY the first day. The experience was wonderful. The car was so-o-o-o comfortable! It had bucket seats in both the front and back seats which made it perfect for a long drive. Our trip had so many special moments; from the sing-a longs with the Oprah and Gayle’s Big Adventure tape to our crazy “bathroom stops”. The Falls were incredible. It just shows how beautiful our country is. Everyone should “see the USA in your Chevrolet” ( the song was on the tape). If you ever get to see our road trip tape there is a part with us singing our version of the song).
The 2nd day we headed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH. It was amazing seeing the guitars and costumes of so many legends in the music business. We saw everything from Patsy Cline to Sting and the Beatles. We spent the night in Toledo. All of us took turns driving so we could experience the car. It was so easy to handle and I’m the one who usually drives only small cars!
Day 3 brought us to Chicago where a driver took over. Oprah and her staff didn’t want us to have to deal with city traffic; or so they said!! They also said we could go to our hotel to freshen up. As many people saw, the driver took us right into the loading area of the Harpo Studios and directly onto the stage!! I don’t know how the Traverse made some of those tight corners. We had no idea this was going to happen. We had such pretty outfits planned for the next morning’s taping.
Oprah, herself, looked as happy as we looked shocked. She and her staff really pulled off an amazing event. She is such a special lady. Even during the breaks, Oprah was so accessible to everyone. She is as “real” off air as she is on air.
What an experience. Anytime, anyone wants to give us a Chevrolet to take anywhere; we are your women!! Can’t wait for our trip to Australia , thanks to Oprah!!
