A surprised and delighted West Aucklander has won the $25,000 grand prize in Mitre 10’s Half-Time Prize Catch promotion.
Vicki Bridger, a frequent customer of Mitre 10 MEGA Henderson, was bowled over upon receiving the news she had won the $25,000 Mitre 10 gift card and is already excited about summer in her soon-to-be fully kitted-out outdoor entertaining space.
“I initially thought it was too good to be true. My husband and I built our house a couple years ago and we visit our local Mitre 10 almost every weekend to find bits and pieces for our home. We’ve recently been eyeing up an outdoor furniture set and BBQ, so the prize money will definitely go towards purchasing those items.”
To celebrate the big win, Vicki was presented with her prize by Auckland Mitre 10 Cup, Blues and All Black lock, Patrick Tuipulotu, alongside Mitre 10 MEGA Henderson store manager Stuart Millward, and owners-operators Dave and Elaine Hargreaves.
“We have a very tight knit and supportive customer base, so we are really happy and proud that one of our most loyal customers has taken out the top prize,” said Stuart.
The Mitre 10 Half-Time Prize Catch promotion is Mitre 10’s most successful to-date. Running throughout September, it had a $50,000 prize pool, with entries from more than 100,000 Mitre 10 customers. In addition to the grand prize, 620 lucky winners throughout New Zealand have walked away with Adidas gift vouchers, Rebel Sport vouchers, Mitre 10 gift cards or rugby supporter packs.
Congratulations to the winners!
