LBC announces monthly winners of their Lupa, Bahay, Cash raffle promo

PRESS RELEASE Winners share their joy, plans San Francisco, Calif. – LBC recently announced that 26 of its customers in the U.S. and Canada have already won in its holiday raffle promo dubbed as “Lupa, Bahay, Cash”.  From September to December, one winner each from the U.S. and Canada can win $1,000 every week from LBC. LBC customers will also get a chance to win any of the four house-and-lot units at the Avida Village-Santa Cecilia in Dasmariñas, Cavite.  Each house-and-lot unit has a value of P1.7 million. Winning was a blessing Vicky A. Lim, a resident of Norfolk, Virginia who immigrated to the U.S. four years ago, shared how her heart overflowed with happiness when she learned that she won only a few days after sending six balikbayan boxes to her family in the Philippines.  Ms. Lim won $1,000 during the drawing on the second week of October. “I have never won anything of great value.  When the LBC guy picked up my boxes, I prayed immediately for God to bless me to win.  When I was notified a few days later that I won, I was reminded of the scriptures that say, ‘We have not, because we ask not.’  We get what we pray for when we ask God,” Ms. Lim shared. Ms. Lim added that she gave a tenth of her winnings to her church and put the rest of her winnings in her savings account.  Since arriving in the U.S. four years ago, Ms. Lim regularly sends home balikbayan boxes to her family and church in the Philippines as part of her missionary work. She was also quick to add that her experience with LBC has been outstanding.  “We used another shipping service in the past and it took longer for our boxes to arrive in their destination.  Some of the boxes were even damaged and opened with some items missing,” she explained. Ms. Lim added that LBC personnel in Virginia are very friendly, “their office and warehouse are clean.” Going home For her part, Elizabeth Seltzer of Las Vegas, Nevada was able to use part of her winnings for her trip to the Philippines, shared her husband David.  “We were shocked and amazed that she won a contest.  We used some of the money for a nice dinner, and the rest for her trip to the Philippines,” Mr. Seltzer added.   Ms. Seltzer won the $1,000 prize money last October 3. The Seltzers also regularly send balikbayan boxes to their relatives in the Philippines through LBC.    “We had a lot of boxes to ship so we use LBC’s services often.  We considered using a shipping container but our past experience with LBC has always been good,” Mr. Seltzer explained. Gift for parents Meanwhile, Sheila B. Dompor, a physical therapist aide in Edmonton, Alberta, won the $1,000 from LBC after sending money to her parents in the Philippines.  Ms. Dompor immigrated to Canada in 2007 from Misamis City, Misamis Occidental. After receiving the news that LBC called, Ms. Dompor said she initially thought that there was something wrong with her speed cash transaction.  “I called LBC back and learned the good news.  But I was still in disbelief. I kept on asking ‘Are you sure it is me?’,” shared Ms. Dompor. Since she left for Canada, Ms. Dompor said that she has always dreamed of building a house for her parents and buying them a vehicle.  She was recently able to fulfill her second wish.  “The money I won from LBC just saved me months worth of car payments,” she added. Ms. Dompor shared that the money she won didn’t even reach her bank account.  Immediately after claiming her prize at the LBC agent location in Alberta, Ms. Dompor sent the $1,000 to her parents for part of the new car’s monthly payments. More winners until December LBC’s Lupa, Bahay, Cash holiday promo is currently ongoing and will end on December 31, 2012.  More lucky LBC customers can still win cash and a house-and-lot unit. The house-and-lot units are located in one of Ayala Land’s residential communities in Cavite.  Avida Villlage-Santa Cecilia is easily accessible from the South Luzon Expressway and is near schools, medical institutions and commercial establishments like the Alabang Town Center and several SM malls. The community has a full array of amenities and services including: a swimming pool, full perimeter fence, multi-purpose hall, park, basketball court, kids’ play area, village-owned water supply system and 24-hour security services. - END - For questions, please contact: Patricia Garcia Brand Head, North America LBC Mundial Corporation 362 East Grand Avenue, South San Francisco, CA 94080 Tel.
