A PENNY FOR HIS THOUGHTS $49,000 INSTANT GOLD GIVEAWAY GRAND PRIZE WINNER

CONROE, TEXAS – Mar. 14, 2013 – It is a made for TV story, as Paul S. has become a Silverleaf celebrity overnight! On a fateful day in March, Paul was celebrating as the newest winner of the Silverleaf Resorts Instant Gold Giveaway Grand Prize – a whopping $49,000! “I was at a loss for words when I saw that winning scratch card” he said. Paul takes us on a journey of how he came to embark on his good fortune.

It was a chilly day in March when retiree Paul S. received a postcard in the mail from the Awards Verification Center showcasing all of the amazing gifts they had to offer just for visiting one of the Silverleaf Resorts. Without hesitation, Paul called the 1-800 number on the postcard and made an appointment to tour the serene Piney Shores Resort about an hour from his home. “The staff was so friendly and accommodating!”

After touring the resort, Paul was taken into the Awards Verification Center to receive his gifts as promised, a 3day/2night Las Vegas trip with round-trip airfare. He finally gets to go to Vegas! “Before my wife passed we had talked about going but so many years have gone by and now I have the opportunity again.” Paul was also given an Instant Gold Giveaway scratch-off card. He grabbed a coin out of his pocket and made one quick swoop in a straight line. “Everyone got really excited but I didn’t want the publicity so I told no one. But now that I have the actual check for $49,000 I am very excited!” Paul said he just wants to relax before deciding what to do with his jackpot, but said he wished he'd visited Silverleaf Resorts years ago.

Paul shared some last minute advice with all of the consumers that were thinking about entering the Instant Gold Giveaway contest, “It is an amazing opportunity, one that can lead to pure enjoyment!” It is so great to see such a humble winner! Congratulations to the most recent Silverleaf Resorts Instant Gold Giveaway Grand Prize Winner, Paul S.

A NEW YEAR WISH COME TRUE FOR INSTANT GOLD GIVEAWAY $49,000 GRAND PRIZE WINNER

CANYON LAKE, TEXAS – Jan. 13, 2013 – For those of you who have been waiting impatiently to find out who the big winner of the Instant Gold Giveaway contest is, the wait is over. The $49,000 Grand Prize Winner was Patrick D. from Waco, Texas.

Anything is possible with a little bit of luck and a lot of hoping and wishing! Or at least that is what Patrick D. and his family of 10 were thinking when they were announced the newest winners of the $49,000 Instant Gold Giveaway at the Hill Country Resort. “We were walking through the Richland Mall and stopped to look at the Chevy vehicle on display when we were approached by a Silverleaf Resorts employee who told us that WE could be the next winners. All we had to do was enter our name into the drawing. We were not believers, yet!”

After touring the resort, which Patrick described as “stunning” and too beautiful for words, he was taken to the Award Verification Center to claim his prizes. He had only one wish; to receive that winning Instant Gold Giveaway scratch-off card. Patrick closed his eyes and held his breath while watching each pot of gold slowly appear. “Everyone was congratulating me, but I thought they were just kidding around.”

For a man who did not start out with much, the experience was a bit overwhelming. “Family is what is dear. We have 10 children so each one of them deserves to be properly spoiled!” Patrick is so grateful for his winnings and advises everyone to sign up if they are given the opportunity.

Let’s all give a big round of applause to Patrick D., our latest Silverleaf Resorts Instant Gold Giveaway Grand Prize Winner.

TYLER, TEXAS – Aug. 12, 2012 – Michael Y. is the third Instant Gold Giveaway contest winner in 2012 to reach the pot of gold at the end of the scratch-off rainbow.

When the Texas native made a trip to the local mall in Tyler to do some shopping he soon forgot what his purpose was there. Michael was instantly attracted to the shiny new car at the Silverleaf Resorts kiosk that he had always envisaged winning. “My parents are always telling me that I should stop signing up to WIN, but I am so glad that I did!”

Michael jumped at the chance to tour The Villages Resort describing the facilities as “beautiful” and the staff as very welcoming. As additional gifts for completing the preview, he also received a trip for two to Mexico and an Instant Gold Giveaway scratch-off card. Michael said a silent prayer closed his eyes and scratched. “When I got to the fourth pot of gold they asked to me to wait so they could bring the Manager over. I did not realize it at first but everyone started hugging me and then I knew.” Michael plans on donating 10% of his winnings to his church.

While a long-overdue vacation may be in his immediate plans, the biggest joy in winning the grand prize is knowing that he can invest in his future, his IT business. Michael held on tight to his check knowing he was truly $49,000 richer. His advice to anyone who has the opportunity to enter the Instant Gold Giveaway, “Go for it! Take a look at what Silverleaf Resorts has to offer.”

GRAND PRIZE

2012 off to a great start for Instant Gold Giveaway $49,000 grand prize winner.

South Lee, MA – Feb. 22, 2012 – Disney World was only a dream vacation until recently for the Grozniak family. Finishing her Christmas shopping at the Crossgates Mall, Crystal G. was drawn to the Silverleaf Resorts kiosk by their promotion of a getaway package to Anaheim, California.

Right away she signed up to visit the Silverleaf Oak N’ Spruce Resort to claim her gift.

As additional gifts for completing the preview, Crystal also received two $40 Visa Gift Cards and an Instant Gold Giveaway scratch-off card. Crystal decided to let her 5-year-old son scratch the Instant Gold card while she counted silently as he unveiled 1-2-3-4 all 5 pots of gold! “I didn’t realize it at first.” When the staff member in the gifting center told Crystal that she was a winner, she said “Thank you but what I have won?”

Crystal, a single working mom, said winning the AVC $49,000 Instant Gold Giveaway Grand Prize gives her the opportunity to start a college fund for her two children. But first she plans to treat her family to that magical Disney dream vacation.

When asked what she would say to anyone given the opportunity to enter the Instant Gold Giveaway contest, she replied “Don’t just sign up for the gifts. Sign up because the resorts are a beautiful environment full of fun activities for the whole family!”

2012 off to a great start for Instant Gold Giveaway $49,000 grand prize winner.

Galveston, Texas – Dec. 12, 2011 – Dear Santa: All I want for Christmas is a new car! That is exactly what Hemanjan P. wished for while signing up at the Silverleaf Resorts kiosk in the Baybrook Mall. “I filled out the form because I really wanted to win that BMW.” Hemanjan never expected to be the grand prize winner of the $49,000 Instant Gold Giveaway.

After he was invited by the Award Verification Center (AVC) to visit Silverleaf’s Seaside Resort in Galveston, Texas, Hemanjan went to the gifting center to claim his prizes. There he received a $40 Visa® Gift Card, a cruise to the Bahamas, and an Instant Gold Giveaway scratch-off card. Hemanjan was so compelled by the beauty of the Seaside Resort that he decided to become a member.

A few weeks later Hemanjan received a phone call that his name was selected in the drawing for the Instant Gold Giveaway Grand Prize. “I thought the phone call was someone playing a joke because my luck is not that great.” It took two phone calls of sharing the great news with Hemanjan before it would sink in.

Hemanjan, who garnered debt while in college, plans to pay off his student loans and is even considering buying that BMW dream car. When asked what he would say to anyone given this opportunity? “I am telling everyone to sign up because you don’t need luck to win a grand prize.”

INSTANT GOLD GIVEAWAY
GRAND PRIZE

Being debt free is almost unheard of, especially during these trying economic times. That is no longer the case for Debbie G., the latest grand prize winner in the $49,000 Instant Gold Giveaway.

Debbie, a mother of two young children, was drawn to the Silverleaf Resorts kiosk at the Grapevine Mills Mall by their promotion of a getaway to the Great Wolf Lodge.  She agreed to preview the Silverleaf Resorts Vacation Store in Irving and also entered the $49,000 Instant Gold Giveaway.

Upon completing the preview, Debbie went to the gifting center where she received her Great Wolf Lodge getaway package, a $40 Visa® Gift Card, and an Instant Gold Giveaway scratch-off card. Debbie thought little about it when she did not scratch off the winning combination, until she received a phone call, during which she was told that her name had been drawn in the Instant Gold Giveaway second-chance drawing.
“I couldn’t believe it! I tried to keep it a secret until my husband got home but I just couldn’t keep it to myself,” she said.
She could hardly believe her eyes big check when she collected her check for $49,000 at the presentation ceremony on August 12 at the Silverleaf Resorts Vacation Store; and even then, it took a few minutes to register. 

Asked how winning the AVC Instant Gold Giveaway has changed her life, Debbie said, “It’s unbelievable! We are going to be able to pay off our car and be debt free.”

When asked what she would say to anyone who has the opportunity to enter the Instant Gold Giveaway, she replied “Sign up because it is definitely true.”
