Feeling like a winner with new car

HELLO YOU HAVE WON A CAR: Shoppingworld’s Marketing Manager Kelle Murphy calls major prize winner of the Mazda 3 Patricia O’Dell from Grafton.
HELLO YOU HAVE WON A CAR: Shoppingworld’s Marketing Manager Kelle Murphy calls major prize winner of the Mazda 3 Patricia O’Dell from Grafton.

IMAGINE being on the receiving end of a phone call and hearing the words, 'you have won a brand new car.'

Grafton's Patricia O'Dell knows the feeling.

On Saturday Steve Casson, dealer principal of Ken Casson Mazda who supplied the major prize, drew her winning entry from a barrel at Grafton Shoppingworld.

While Patricia O'Dell wasn't on site for the draw, she took the call from Grafton Shoppingworld manager Kelle Murphy and is no doubt looking forward to collecting her new Mazda 3, worth $24,300, later this week.

The runner up prize, a Telstra Tech Pack valued at $2700, sponsored by Telstra, went to Olive Hannah, also from Grafton.

Ms Murphy said the response had been huge and it was great to see the two main prizes go to winners from the Clarence Valley with more than 50,000 entries handed out at Grafton Shoppingworld.

The joint promotion, launched in April, has already given 30 lucky winners $100 each in shopping vouchers over three monthly draws, courtesy of The Daily Examiner.

Last week Steve Casson said turning Grafton Shoppingworld into a temporary showroom for the Mazda 3 had been a great move with lots of inquiries coming in.
