Housewife and mother of four, Alicia Obispo, couldn’t hold back her tears when she received one of the greatest surprises of her life. She is now P3-million richer after her entry was drawn as the Grand Winner of the Great Taste White Choose Great, Win Great Raffle Promo.
“My dream is to have our own house and lot. I don’t want to worry that one day we’ll be forced out from our home.” says Alicia who resides in a rural farmland with her husband and children. “If our land owners asked us to leave, we have to evacuate right away - that’s why if we have enough money, we’d build our own house.”
Every day is a challenge for Alicia who, aside from not having a permanent shelter, strives to make ends meet from tending livestock. Alicia, with her daily cup of coffee, faces each day with strength and determination—little did she know that it would also bring the life-changing reward she has been hoping for.
What could have been an ordinary day turned into something great as the Great Taste White team surprised her with a P3-million cheque. She was flooded with joy as she realized that her dream of having their own house and lot can now be fulfilled. In addition, she can pay for her youngest daughter’s education and other expenses.
It was truly an unexpected blessing for the Obispos, as they joined the raffle with hopes of winning only an iPad, a luxury they knew they couldn’t afford.
Aside from the cash prize, the Great Taste White team also gave Alicia and her youngest daughter Cherielene an exclusive Pinoy Big Brother experience. The two ladies enjoyed VIP tickets to the PBB: 737 Big Night and a tour in the PBB house. To top this off, they were treated to a meet-and-greet session with PBB All-In Big Winner Daniel Matsunaga.
Just like Alicia, Filipinos from all over the country received amazing prizes after joining the Great Taste White Choose Great, Win Great Raffle Promo. This is Great Taste White’s way of thanking Filipinos for making them the number one white coffee brand in the country.
The raffle had twenty regional draws across GMA, North Luzon, South Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, and one National Grand Draw, which saw Alicia bagging the grand prize of P3 million.
