Congrats to our $25,000 Grand Prize Winner!
We are so pleased to announce the $25,000 grand prize winner of our 2014 Best of the Northwest Giveaway! Join us as we congratulate Amber V., a long-time Washington resident and a 7 year Bellinghamster. Amber registered for the Best of the Northwest giveaway while picking up some things for a camping trip. Dry ice was on her list, and while grabbing it from our Guest Services she was encouraged to register for the giveaway by one of our employees, Rhonda, because of all the local items she was purchasing. “We always try to buy local anyway,” says Amber, “especially local steaks from Haggen” so it was a no-brainer to sign up. What was the lucky Northwest item that won her all this cash? A bunch of organic green onions did the trick!
Amber plans to donate some of her winnings to her sister and brother-in-law to help cover the medical bills after a MS diagnosis. She says the rest will be saved away and invested into a house. There was a mix of excitement and disbelief when Amber got the news and her friends and family can’t be happier for her. “My dad loves me more than ever,” Amber jokes about her newly accumulated winnings.
In true Northwest style, Amber and her boyfriend love hiking, water sports and any outdoor activities in Bellingham. They love music and can be found at enjoying a show at the Wild Buffalo or other local venues. We’re happy to award our grand prize to one of the best in the Northwest, Amber!
We’ll be celebrating with Amber and her friends and family at our Sehome Haggen store this Friday, September 5 at 2pm with cake and goodies.
