Shopping draw winner picked
Mark Whitaker is the lucky winner of the $5000 Greerton Village Grand Draw shopping spree whose name was drawn under police supervision at last night’s Mid Winter Madness Promotion.
The festival was celebrated by a lantern and drumming event in the Greerton Village square.
There were hundreds of entries from the shopping promotion, says Greerton Village Mainstreet manager Sally Benning.
"Mark made a purchase at House of Chadwick," says Sally.
"He can now spend $5000 at any of the shops in the promotion."
Mark wasn’t present to receive his prize so Sally will be contacting him to arrange a time for him to come in and collect it. He can then go shopping.
Tauranga Samba and Raro the clown performed during the evening which also featured a parade of lanterns made by families and children in the Greerton Hall during the recent school holidays.
