RICHMOND HILL, ON, Oct. 21, 2014 /CNW/ - On Monday, October 20th, Global RESP Corporation (GRESP) conducted its annual contest draw for a $20,000 Education Savings Plan at the company's Richmond Hill head office.
The $20,000 prize is awarded to one lucky beneficiary who has submitted a ballot either online or through one of GRESP's many Dealing Representatives across Canada. This contest was intended to jump-start a child's education and to help turn dreams into reality, which forms the very backbone of the company's mandate.
The contest draw was attended by Global's head office staff and Dealing Representatives, who have been diligently collecting entry ballots for the last year. The event was covered by local media such as Mix TV and TV Pakistan. The mayor of Richmond Hill, Dave Barrow, was the honoured special guest who helped to select the winning ballot and the recipient of the $20,000 Education Savings Plan.
Every year, three ballots are drawn. In the case that we are unable to contact the first winner, the prize defaults to the second winner and then to the third winner. This year, our winner is Josh Panchoo from Mississauga, Ontario. The second and third winners are Rogue Glasbeek from Edmonton, Alberta and Manroop Kaur from Brampton, Ontario, respectively. Congratulations!
Chairman and CEO Sam Bouji said, "We would like to thank everybody and we wish all the children good luck. And for the parents who entered their children this year and didn't win, please don't hesitate – submit their names next year!"
Mr. Dave Barrow added, "Every dream needs a plan, and this is the plan to make your dreams come true, truly. And today we've made at least one person's dream come true that they can move forward with a bonus to their education."
If you have a child or are expecting a child, you too can enter for your chance to win an Education Savings Plan worth up to $20,000 from Global RESP Corporation (GRESP)! Please submit your ballot online at http://www.globalresp.com/GlobalRESPSite/GlobalRESP/Contest20K.
