THE DRAW: Tyron Lam announces the winners in the presence of Police officers yesterday.

Four lucky Samoans are heading to the Hong Sevens, thanks to Vailima Breweries.

Yesterday, the company drew the names of the winners at their office, from more than 20,000 entries.

George Avia, the National Sales and Marketing Manager, Gus Leilua the Regional Sales Manager, Jayne Sia the Human Resources Manager and Trevor Nainoca, the Financial Controller, all took turns drawing a name.

The winners are:

Tyron Lam, Marketing and Sales Consultant, said Vailima was delighted to be able to give back to the community through this project.

 “Vailima has been part of rugby for a very long time now not only internationally but also at the grass roots level,” he said.

“This promotion is not only to support our Manu 7’s but to also reward our customers who consume our products.

“We have decided to send four people to join our small Samoan community in Hong Kong to help support our boys.”

Ensuring a balance between Upolu and Savaii was very important.

“We first thought of sending just three people but we changed it to four so we can reward more people and that way we can fairly allocate two tickets for those in Savai’i and two for those here in Upolu.

“This is also to give these people a chance to experience live international 7’s rugby. We want our Savai’i residence to also have a good time in Hong Kong.”

The winners will have a return trip to Hong Kong where they will first stop off at Fiji for a day (accommodations included). Then they will make their way to Hong Kong where they will stay at a 5 star hotel which includes American Breakfasts and game tickets.

They will be in Hong Kong for four days.

Joining the 4 lucky Samoans are the 4 lucky Fijians from their draw in Fiji.

“This is just to thank the community and to reward them for the many years of supporting Vailima ‘Samoa’s very own' and 'The Taste of Samoa’.”
