DIGICEL ANNOUNCES WINNER OF BRAND NEW SUZUKI SWIFT
Sunday, 27 December 2009 – Road Town, Tortola: The suspense is now over and the winner of the brand new red Suzuki Swift on display at Digicel's Flagship Store on Waterfront Drive in Road Town has been announced.
Close to 200 anxious subscribers converged on the store on Christmas Eve to see whether they would win this great Christmas gift from The Bigger, Better Network.
The eligibility requirements for Digicel's Drive, Dream, Relax promotion which was launched on the company's first anniversary on November 28th were: top up $20 or more, buy a Digicel phone, make a call, send a text or pay your bill in full and on time.
Since the launch and at the Christmas Eve drawing at the Flagship Store, other lucky subscribers won digital cameras, iPods, free credit, BlackBerry Gemini 8520 smartphones and Digicel goodie bags.
The over 40 finalists invited to the store for the grand prize drawing were randomly pre-selected via a computerized process. Then five finalists were selected on the evening via the same random computerized process and asked to sit on chairs placed in front of the car. They were then asked to feel under their chairs for gift cards which had their prize written on them. Four persons won Digicel BlackBerry smartphones, while the other drove away with the Suzuki Swift.
"I was extremely delighted to see the huge turnout of Digicel subscribers who showed up at the store on Christmas Eve to see whether they would win the brand new red Suzuki Swift from International Motors," stated Digicel's Senior Marketing Executive Angela Burns. "This was really very exciting for us, to be giving back to our customers in such a substantial way. And to see the tears of joy on the face of the lucky winner, well that was simply the greatest!"
In her remarks at the drawing, Burns went on to thank all of Digicel's subscribers for switching to The Bigger, Better Network throughout the past year and encouraged others to sign up and benefit from the value added packages Digicel offers. “With Digicel, you are always a winner," she said.
Digicel’s Country Manager Alan Bates was on hand to congratulate the lucky winner. He commended all of the staff for their hard work and dedication in ensuring that Digicel's first year in the BVI was successful. He also wished all customers and their families Season's Greetings and all the best for the future.
Everyone was still asking up to then how the car got inside the Flagship Store. It was the talk of the town for the past weeks, with many persons actually walking into the store just to see whether the car was real!
Congratulations to the lucky winner - Dennis William Haggerty of Chalwell Estate, Tortola, or rather to his wife Shirley who he immediately turned the car over to. In between tears herself, Shirley was very quick to thank Digicel's Corporate Account Manager Matthew Daly for signing up her business and for his excellent account management services to date.
The Drive, Dream, Relax promotion continues until February 26th, 2010. Subscribers still stand a chance to win an all expenses paid cruise for two in January and a 50 inch flat screen television in February. The same eligibility requirements apply.
