PORT Macquarie’s Luke Horton received an early Christmas present valued at $35,000 this week.
Thanks to Port Central and its owners Gowings Bros, The Pacific Coast Shopping Centre’s “win a car” competition was run throughout four major shopping centres – Port Central, Kempsey Central, Coffs Central and Moonee Marketplace.
The lucky winner was drawn and Mr Horton collected his new Fiat Abath 500 Esse valued at about $35,000 this week. As expected, Mr Horton was thrilled when he received the keys to his impressive new ride, but said he may run into some hurdles when it comes to enjoying his prize.
“I’m looking forward to driving around town in the Fiat Abath,” he said. “Although, I suspect my wife will beat me to it.”
Mr Horton thanked Pacific Coast Shopping Centres for conducting the competition.
Port Central’s Ann-Maree Crowe said there would be more opportunities to win some great prizes in the near future: “Don’t be disappointed if you didn’t win this time,” she said. “In January, you can enter a competition to win one of two boat packages valued at over $6000.”
