CONGRATULATIONS TO THE $10,000 GRAND PRIZE WINNER IN THE WEST!
William Trathen was awarded the $10,000 at a prize ceremony in Calgary at the end of June, 2012! William chose the Rainbow Society as the recipient of the $10,000 designated for charity.
[During the presentation] I was asked what plans we had for the cash and at that time we had no idea. Now after thinking about it, I don't think it will be a problem. We had been planning a river cruise in Europe for the fall but health issues forced us to cancel. This gave us a little money to spend on the house and yard and [we] planned on borrowing from the homeowners line of credit to pay off any balances. Thanks to [the] Mac's contest our renos will be all paid in full.
This feels like fairly normal business though. The real joy comes from being able to contribute to the children. It is with heartfelt thanks that Mac's Stores made it possible for us to help bring smiles to a family that has to deal with life struggles far beyond what we can comprehend.
To all that participated in the contest, we want to thank you! Make sure to keep your eyes pealed for other ways to celebrate our 50th anniversary with us!
