Contest Winner has a New Outlook after Winning Future Shop's Back to School Contest

    Local Calgarian to receive a Saturn Outlook and $5000 in prizing at
    Future Shop on Tuesday

    BURNABY, BC, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - When Canada's largest national retailer and
e-tailer of consumer electronics, Future Shop, called Dianne Gardner to award
her a new car, the timing couldn't have been better for the Calgary mother and
grandmother of two. Future Shop held a national online contest for Back to
School in August and September which awarded a brand new Saturn Outlook, a
$2500 gas card and a $2500 Gift Card to Future Shop. The winner, Dianne
Gardner had been without a vehicle since her 1986 car broke down last year.
    "I haven't had a new car since I was 18!" said Diane Gerber, 52. "I've
told my granddaughters that they will be my first passengers. It is so
exciting for all of us."
    Dianne will be presented with her new Saturn Outlook, and additional
prizes tomorrow at the NE Calgary Future Shop.
