Extra special Mother’s Day for lucky winners

Every mother deserves to be celebrated this Mother’s Day. 

And although there were many heart warming submissions for the Samoa Observers “Picture your Mum on Mother’s Day” promotion, there could only be five winners.

Yesterday the lucky winners were drawn at the Samoa Observer headquarters at Vaitele.

The winners are: Maiava Ruta Vaepule, Perelini Taulima Vaeao, Charity Alisi, Levaea Fuatimu Posese, and Edith Meredith.

The winners will be treated to something a little extra special.  

Courtesy of sponsors from the Orator Hotel, Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Hotel and Bungalows, Taumeasina Island Resort, Apia Traders,  and Treasure Box, the winners will all be celebrating Mother’s Day tomorrow in style.

 The conclusion of the promotion ended in a live draw held at the Samoa Observer’s Headquarters in Vaitele. 

Led by Marketing and Sales Manager, Helen Papali’i and flanked by sponsors from the Orator Hotel, Charlotte Chan Mow Brunt, Sheraton’s Sherriyln Charles, Taumeasina’s  Lisa Wilson, the winners were chosen at random.  


Maiava Ruta Vaepule Perelini, will receive a 42” Flat Screen T.V. courtesy of Apia Traders. 

Edith Meredith will receive a complementary two-night stay at the fabulous Orator Hotel.  

Taulima Vaeao will enjoy a relaxing Sunday to’onai for six poolside at the Taumeasina Island Resort. 

Levaea Fuatimu Posese is set to enjoy a two night stay and the spa at the Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Hotel and Bungalows. 

And Charity Alisi will receive a $200 tala voucher to buy something that glitters at Treasure Box. 

This is what the winners wrote about their mothers:
