Natasha Haloute and Peggy Sealy both confessed that they were stunned to hear that they were winners of Scotiabank’s Holiday Aero Mastercard campaign. Both women have won trips to Miami, along with $6,000 in spending money, compliments of Scotiabank.
“I just couldn’t believe it!” declared Sealy who admitted that she’s not the sort to enter competitions and promotions.
“I’ve never won anything in my life. I don’t even fill out any forms for contests!” she added.
Scotiabank’s holiday promotion was just right for her as it didn’t require entry forms, tickets or anything of the sort. Sealy and Haloute became winners simply by making their holiday purchases using their Scotiabank Aero Mastercards.
This was also Haloute’s first time winning any contest and she disclosed that she was “totally surprised” when she was contacted with the news.
Haloute decided to pass on her good fortune by donating the spending money from her prize to the Keana Banfield Fund, set up to assist the eight year old Christ Church Girls Primary student, who is currently hospitalised in the United States. Banfield’s family faces a medical bill of US$340,000 after she fell ill over the recent school holiday with a serious bacterial infection and had to be airlifted to the Holtz Children’s Hospital in Miami.
“I would like to thank Scotiabank for having this holiday campaign competition as it has given me the opportunity to contribute all the monetary funds won to the Keana Banfield Fund. [She] needs all the help she can receive,” stressed Haloute.
