Te­gan’s trea­sure is a $10,000 fam­ily treat

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

WE HAVE a win­ner.

The final draw from the pop­u­lar Port of Air­lie post-Cy­clone Deb­bie Trea­sure pro­mo­tion has fi­nally made one per­son $10,000 richer.

And the win­ner is ... roll of drums ... Te­gan Pen­nisi of Bowen.

Te­gan, her hus­band Damian and chil­dren Si­enna, 7, and Carter, 3, have been spend­ing up big in Air­lie, con­scious of the eco­nomic cost of Cy­clone Deb­bie’s phys­i­cal wrath upon the com­mu­nity.

“We wanted to sup­port the busi­nesses fol­low­ing the cy­clone,” Te­gan said.

“We have been stay­ing at the Mantra Boathouse Apart­ments; we’ve seen first-hand what has hap­pened here.”

Te­gan was un­de­cided what her wind­fall would be specif­i­cally spent on – but it wouldn’t be lav­ish.

“I’d like to buy a few things for the fam­ily,” she said.

The Port of Air­lie draw started on June 15, mar­ket­ing spokes­woman Tolita Dukes said.

“Peo­ple have been able to col­lect points on every pur­chase they have made, with every $10 spent cre­at­ing one en­try,” she said.

“Every day we would give out a prize; maybe a bikini, a t-shirt or meal voucher.”

Ms Dukes said, due to its suc­cess, the or­gan­i­sa­tion would look at plan­ning another pro­mo­tion in 12 months’ time.

WIN­NERS: Damian, Carter and Te­gan Pen­nisi are the win­ners of the Port of Air­lie $10,000 “Trea­sure” pro­mo­tion.
