CALGARY, Aug. 21, 2017 /CNW/ - In a heartwarming phone call to Fort McMurray's own Bonnie and Frankie Hynes, Rogers Insurance gave away $5,000 to the overjoyed family as the winners of the #RogersDreamBig social media contest that wrapped up August 1, 2017. This money will help provide the funds for the Hynes to "grow their family by two feet" after they have struggled with fertility issues for years.
After entering #RogersDreamBig and making it to the top three contestants by securing 500 votes on Facebook, the Hynes' dream was selected as the winner by Rogers' President, Lee Rogers and COO, Bruce Rabik.
"We wanted to celebrate our anniversary by giving back to the communities that we live and work in. We are proud to be a part of this touching story," says President Lee Rogers. Rogers Insurance employees participate in a similar program annually where four winners are announced at their annual Christmas Party. He adds, "We are proudly Alberta based, with offices in Calgary, Red Deer, and Fort McMurray – and we wanted all Albertans to get the chance to Dream Big in 2017."
The cheque will be presented to the Hynes couple at the Rogers Insurance Fort McMurray office. To see the emotional footage of staff announcing the news to the winner, visit Rogers Insurance here.
