Ms. Adriana Thimi, bakery manager at the Rosebury Square Sobeys store in North York, began living the dream on Wednesday when she was presented the keys to a shiny new 2016 BMW 428i xDrive Gran Coupe as a vehicle winner in the Select Sweepstakes.
The presentation took place midday at Sobeys Head Office in Mississauga.
“I cannot find the words to describe how excited I am to have won this beautiful car. It’s like a dream come true. I just can’t believe it,” said Thimi. “This means a lot to me and my family. My husband and son were shocked when I told them the news. My friends at work are so excited for me. About six or seven of them have switched to our group insurance plan through A.P. Reid and are all hoping to win something, too!”
“A.P. Reid has been managing the employee insurance program for Sobeys Inc. since 1992. As the program expands nationally, A.P. Reid is excited to provide access to programs such as the Select Sweepstakes, to reward group members for their support,” said Jamie Reid, President of A.P. Reid Insurance. “Thousands of Sobeys employees across Canada, like Ms. Thimi, have saved hundreds of dollars on their insurance and many more are switching every day and entering the contest to hopefully win a car themselves.”
The Select Sweepstakes campaign is run in partnership between Economical Select, one of Canada’s leading providers of group car and home insurance, and insurance brokers across Canada, offering eligible group members an opportunity to win great prizes1. As a member of the Sobeys Group of Companies, Ms. Thimi was eligible for exclusive group pricing in addition to being entered into the Select Sweepstakes.
“The Select Sweepstakes campaign has been instrumental in helping to drive group insurance sales and in supporting the efforts of our broker partners across the country,” explained David Fitzpatrick, Division Vice-President, Economical Select. “When group members get a car or home insurance quote, they’re entered to win great prizes while our brokers benefit from increased interaction with group members. We’re happy to assist by providing marketing support throughout the campaign, but really, seeing the winners’ faces and the impact a new vehicle has on their families are what make this campaign so worthwhile.”
The third annual Select Sweepstakes campaign for Economical group members has just launched.. The campaign features an exciting prize lineup, giving group members the chance to win one of six new vehicles and a $250 gas card. – CNW
