Customers share in $20,000 Christmas gifts
The Ah Liki Wholesale and Chef Choice Tuna have announced the winners of their Christmas promotion.
The promotion attracted over 30,000 entries from around the nation with 16 winners announced yesterday. The prices—valued at over $20,000—included BBG grills, Stihl weed eaters, outdoor lounge suite sets and outdoor dining sets. There were also consolation prizes for participants.
The two lounge suites—which are a four-piece set—was won by six-year-old Jean Tarra Fanene and Fealofani Reupena.
Jean’s father Matolu Fanene said Jean went to the shop with her aunt Sula Fanene to buy canned tuna, and entered the draw for the top prize.
“We were just so surprised when Ah Liki called to tell us that we had won the draw. We are grateful to the companies Ah Liki Wholesale and Chef Choice Tuna for the lounge suites, but most importantly to my daughter for putting her name in the draw,” he said.
The five-piece dining set was won by Ellanoa Komiti from Fusi Safata and Misiolo Junior Italia from Alamagoto. The three BBQ sets were presented to Kurene Endermann, Yvonne Lino and Sweetheart Ifale while the five Stihl lawn mowers went to Tuna Lautua, Hesed Maua, Dyxon Hansell and Minna Petersen.
Yvonne LIno and her son Timothy Lino were both very happy to have won the prize.
“We won the prizes simply from purchasing the canned tuna’s to make the children’s lunch. It was my son Timothy, who reminded me that there was an entry for purchasing two canned tunas.
So we had 12 entries which was 24 cans of tuna we purchased in all. Just like the other winners, we are just grateful for these gifts. They will be of great use in our family, for gatherings and cook outs. We love it and will continue to participate in other promotions,” she said.
The Christmas promotion is Chef Choice Tuna’s third and its bid to market Samoa’s “favorite Tuna.” Ah Liki Wholesale has assured its customers that the promotion will become an annual event, as they continue to reward their customers.
Ah Liki Wholesale management and staff thanked customers for their support and wished everyone a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.
