Summer promo winner gifts her prize
After sorting out her phone troubles on Monday morning, Mulwala’s Sue Curran noticed she had a message on her voicemail from the Corowa Free Press’ Advertising Consultant Dale Pegg.
Unsure as to why Dale had made the call, Sue promptly called back and to her delight was informed that she was the winner of the Corowa Free Press Summer Promotion threeday comedy cruise.
Sue’s name was pulled out of a barrel of more than 3000 entries in the local shopping campaign by Corowa Travel Link’s Sue Wynne on Monday morning.
She will now be presented the lucky tickets to a three-day comedy cruise in Sydney, courtesy of Corowa Travel Link.
“I can’t believe that I have won this prize,” Sue told the Free Press.
“I have only ever won a microwave before, so to win a cruise, this is just absolutely amazing.
“I am so humbled and so pleased that I shopped locally, I would urge everyone to do so as I try to shop local first whenever I can and now it has really paid off.”
It wasn’t long before the Free Press office received another excited call from Sue where she went on to explain that she would not be keeping the tickets for herself, but she had plans to gift them to her two daughters.
“After hopping off the phone I realised that we will be on holidays in Queensland when the cruise is set to run so I have made the decision to give the tickets to my daughters,” Sue said.
“I really hope they enjoy the cruise together, I am sure that it will be beautiful.”
The promotion ran across the summer months and customers who spent $30 or more in participating businesses were given a ticket.
Sue’s lucky local purchase was at Shine, a clothing boutique in Sanger Street and this has now enabled Shine to have an automatic entry into the next promotion.
The Free Press would like to thank the following businesses for taking part in the 2017 Summer Promotion; Corowa Travel Link, Origin Clothing, Corowa Supa IGA, Brunella Schoolwear, Zest Studio, Gyles Newsagency, Corowa Hotel, Corowa Curtains and Décor, Shine, Meat on the Murray and Bags n’ Boots.
After the success of this campaign, the Free Press is encouraging everyone to keep their eyes peeled for yet another local shopping promotion that is set to take place this winter.
