GESMA GREEN
INSTANT GOLD GIVEAWAY
GRAND PRIZE

Imagine, it’s early morning, you’re at work, and your task right now is to get your fuel tanker truck ready to head out on the day’s run. All of sudden your cell rings, you are not sure if you want to talk on your phone right now but after a quick thought you go  ahead and answer it anyway. The lady on the other end verifies your name and asks “Are you sitting down?” You tell her “No” and she reply’s “Well you might want to sit down I have some news for you”

That’s what happened when Silverleaf Resorts and the Award Verification Center called Mr. Gesma Green informing him that he was the latest $49,000 Grand Prize Winner of the Instant Gold Giveaway Sweepstakes. Yes, that is Forty Nine Thousand Dollars. According to Mr. Green, after taxes he netted around $43,000 – quite the tidy sum if one does say so...

Gesma entered into a drawing the Greenspoint Mall in Houston for a number of different prizes, including the Grand Prize of $49,000. Six months later he got the call - “This has definitely been a Blessing for me and the family. Maybe even life changing in a way…” The first thing he did was pay off all his bills - he proudly proclaimed he is all but debt free except for one car payment.  He was of course also able to help mom out by completing some badly needed repair work on her house and by covering some outstanding medical bills for her. He then made his wife happy by buying her a new vehicle, and after all that has even managed to start a custom T-shirt business at a local flea market. By all indications, Mr.Green really has made this windfall work for him and we really wish him all the best in the future.

Gesma said “I used to complain about how other people won stuff and I never won anything… No longer can I be a complainer - now that I’ve made it to the winner’s circle!”

All-right Gesma Green, our latest Silverleaf Instant Gold Giveaway Grand Prize Winner from the AVC.
