Jeannette Le Moing, a Sunnyside resident for more than twenty years, won a flat-screen TV last Friday after participating in a “shop-local” campaign sponsored by Sunnyside Shines.
During the three weekends before Christmas, Sunnyside Shines handed out coupon books offering savings to as many as 44 local stores that included a contest to win a brand new 40″ television.
Le Moing used seven coupons from the book by shopping at Associated Supermarket, Lowery Wines & Liquors, Flowers by Giorgie, Woodside House Hallmark, April Glass and Orchard Farmers Market. Her winning ticket was pulled from her trip to Orchard Farmers Market.
Le Moing was shocked when she learned that she had won, according to James Bray, executive director of the Sunnyside Shines. ” ‘Is this a brand new TV in a box or a used TV?’” she asked, and “’Are you playing a joke on me?’”
