The winner of a collaborated promotion between Western Union and Caribbean Airlines, on Thursday
expressed sheer jubilation after receiving her prize of an all-expense paid nine-day return trip to the United States to participate in Guyana’s 50th Independence Anniversary Celebrations in Queens.
According to the Marketing Assistant of Western Union, Reena Williams, the promotion commenced on 25 April and ended on 20 May. She highlighted that within the promotional period, anyone who used their Western Union card to transact business was automatically eligible.
The winner, Nandaney Budhram expressed appreciation towards Western Union and Caribbean Airlines and pronounced that she was oblivious to the promotion, thus being sceptical when she was informed she had won.
“I am so very happy. I can’t even express. When I was called and told that I won, I wasn’t sure, because, you know, a lot of fraud is going on. I didn’t even know there was a promotion or anything. But I’m so very happy and thankful,” Budhram said.
Western Union Marketing Officer, Christel Vansluytman explained that the winning package entails an all-expense paid trip and accommodation for two to New York, along with US$800 pocket money.
Caribbean Airlines Sales Executive Deon Innis extended congratulations to Budhram and encouraged her to “enjoy the opportunity to the fullest.”
