Mario Fatima Ah Tong, of Vailele and Luatuanu’u, was the happiest person in Samoa yesterday.
He was a winner and he drove away with a brand new 2018 Toyota Hilux, worth $105,500, courtesy of Bluesky Samoa and Asco Motors.
Bluesky Group C.E.O., Toleafoa Douglas Creevey, presented Mr. Ah Tong with the keys to his brand new pick up truck during a hand over ceremony at the Bluesky headquarters.
Bluesky customers were asked to text the word “Hilux” to 4444 to go into the draw for the vehicle and $1,200 tala worth of mobile phone credit. There was also $50,000 worth of instant prizes during the two-month period.
And with more than 100,000 individual entries, Mr. Ah Tong won after sending more than 1,200 text entries, valued at 99sene per text.
He said the car would be presented to his father.
“Firstly I would like to thank the Lord for this opportunity,” he said.
“I would also like to thank Bluesky Samoa because if it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be able to drive in the car sitting behind me.
“I would also like to thank my family for all their help and support during the competition. They would say to keep texting because you never know what will happen and now I have won.
“To Samoa, Bluesky has helped us so much. As you can see that this brand new car behind me is mine so keep trying next time with more promotions that will come.”
Toleafoa thanked everyone who took part.
“The grand prize is the vehicle in the background and we would like to acknowledge our partnership with Asco Motors for the prize of a 2018 model Hilux,” Toleafoa began.
“We would also like to thank all of our retail outlets and agents who have participated to be able to allow our customers to register.
“And also to our customers, you are the backbone of this company and we thank you sincerely for all of your patronage.”
Toleafoa also took the opportunity to wish Samoa a wonderful 2018 and gave a word of thanks to all the patrons and supporters of the telecommunication company.
“Bluesky Samoa would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very successful and happy 2018,” he said.
“We take this opportunity to thank you for all your patronage, your support, your partnerships and also your trust in the management team here.
“We are taking this opportunity to pass this message of appreciation for all our participation and contributions from the public and especially our customers.”
Toleafoa added Bluesky is looking into many more major programs throughout the year with one being the Tui Cable which is now undergoing transmission testing and will be commissioned in the next couple of months.
