August Anniversary Winners

Fortson Turner, $1000 gift certificate winner Laurel Griffith, $5000 gift certificate winner D'Andrea Bridges & Austin Turner

Now in the sixth month of our 100 Year Anniversary campaign, we’ve already given away a total of $60,000 in free furniture and donated $60,000 to local charities!

The August drawing yielded two big winners from Albany. D’Andrea Bridges received $5,000 in free furniture. She along with her fiance and son just moved into a new home and were in need of a new mattress and a few other items. She told us she was very grateful her name was drawn for the $5,000 grand prize. The $1,000 gift certificate winner was Laurel Griffith, who was also excited her name was drawn.

The matching charity donation of 5,000 was presented to Albany Advocacy Resource Center, one of the largest private provider agencies in Georgia that offers quality care and services for people of all ages with physical and/or mental disabilities. They are using the donation to fund their new Kids’ Corner Child Development Center. Receiving the $1,000 donation was Mission Change, a local grass-roots volunteer organization that raises awareness and takes action concerning issues affecting our region from homelessness and food insecurity to under-served inner-city youth and more. They are putting the $1,000 toward The Village, an after school program designed to guide under-served youth into becoming strong stewards of their community.

There was also a $500 winner from Tallahassee and a $500 winner from Thomasville. Congratulations to all of our August winners and charities. See below for a complete listing. To learn more about the $100,000 giveaway, click here.
