New World Mount Maunganui shopper Desirae Curtis, has walked away with much more than her usual groceries, winning $10,000 cash in a nationwide promotion run by New World and Fonterra Brands.

Desirae was thrilled to receive her prize on the ‘Find Your Fortune’ game show on TV2 last night and is the lucky last of four winners of big prizes up for grabs in the promotion.

“The entire experience on the show was such a memorable one and it was unbelievable to win the cash! A special thanks to all the lovely people that made my experience in Auckland so great,” says Desirae.

“With all the house guests we have passing through, I sometimes I feel that I live at New World Mount Maunganui so it was nice to be rewarded in this way.”

Desirae and husband, Gary, have lived in the region for many years and Tauranga is a city that they love. They live close to the beach and enjoy getting out in the great outdoors for waterskiing and winter skiing.

New World Mount Maunganui owner-operator Allan Rudkin is also very excited about the win and delighted that one of his shoppers scooped up such a wonderful prize.

Allan says; “A huge congratulations needs to go out to Desirae! She’s one of our loyal customers and we couldn’t be more thrilled for her big win. Our store is buzzing with the good news and everyone is just so happy for the couple.”

The promotion ran in-store from Monday February 4 until Sunday March 3, with customers who used their Fly Buys card and purchased two participating brands from New World stores nationwide, automatically entered into the draw.

Each of the four lucky winners had the opportunity to win the biggest prize of one million dollars cash. Other prizes the winners are guaranteed to walk away with include either the Ford Fiesta car, a $15,000 Fisher & Paykel whiteware package or $10,000 cash.
