Early cel­e­bra­tion for young shop­per

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Christmas came early for Paityn Cham­bers, 19, of War­rackn­abeal when she won a $15,000 cash jack­pot in a ma­jor re­gional shop­ping pro­mo­tion.

Paityn was one of 19 fi­nal­ists in The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser and ra­dio sta­tions 3WM and MIXX FM Jack­pot or the Cash com­pe­ti­tion.

Dur­ing an of­fi­cial draw at Har­vey Nor­man Hor­sham on Satur­day, she dis­cov­ered she was the lucky fi­nal­ist who had a spe­cial code that un­locked a win­ning suit­case.

ACE Hor­sham’s pro­mo­tions man­ager Kaycee Bould said the draw was an ex­cit­ing con­clu­sion to what had been a pro­duc­tive, suc­cess­ful and fun com­pe­ti­tion.

“The com­pe­ti­tion was de­signed to strongly push the ‘shop lo­cally’ idea, and from Novem­ber 21 to De­cem­ber 15 more than 5000 Wim­mera shop­pers across the re­gion en­tered,” she said.

“That not only meant 5000 peo­ple en­tered a com­pe­ti­tion, but also that 5000 peo­ple had made a con­scious de­ci­sion to shop lo­cally – that was how they qual­i­fied to en­ter.”

The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser, 3WM and MIXX FM gen­eral man­ager Brendan O’lough­lin said as well as the $15,000 jack­pot, the sta­tion also gave away a fur­ther $6800 in ra­dio cash give­aways.

“This was for par­tic­i­pants who opted to take im­me­di­ate cash prizes in­stead of go­ing into the big draw,” he said.

“Crit­i­cally, while it was most en­joy­able be­ing in a po­si­tion to of­fer such won­der­ful cash prizes, we are ex­tremely happy that we have helped pro­mote the spirit of shop­ping lo­cally this Christmas.”

Ms Bould said Paityn had been shak­ing in ex­cite­ment and dur­ing the fi­nal draw.

“It’s a great end to the year and what a great Christmas sur­prise for Paityn, who en­tered at Prouds the Jewellers in Hor­sham. She said she planned to use the money for a de­posit on a house,” Ms Bould said.

“This is an in­cred­i­ble and po­ten­tially life-chang­ing prize and we’re more than happy to be part of this won­der­ful pro­mo­tion with ma­jor spon­sors Har­vey Nor­man Hor­sham and Ararat.”

Com­pe­ti­tion run­ners-up re­ceived gift packs, which in­cluded $100 Har­vey Nor­man vouch­ers and wine from Cel­e­bra­tions Su­per­store in Hor­sham.

“It is a won­der­ful way to cel­e­brate the end of the year. And the mes­sage from The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser and 3WM and MIXX FM is to keep watch­ing this space in 2019,” Ms Bould said. an­tic­i­pa­tion
