Several persons who transacted business with the money transfer guru, Western Union, over the weekend won several valuable prizes from the Union’s “Back To School Promotion.”
The prizes which include mini laptops, school materials among others were won by over 75 persons from different parts of the country.
Major partners of the Union that dished out the prizes included the United Bank of Africa (UBA), First International Bank (FiBank), Liberia Investment Bank for Development (LBDI), International Bank of Liberia (IBL), Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) and ECOBank.
Winners of prizes were those who participated in the Western Union’s Back To School Promotion in the month of October through either sending money or receiving money through Western Union, using any of the aforementioned banks.
The draw held at the Monrovia City Hall and it brought together executives of the various banks, the Liberia National Lottery as well as students from high Schools and universities in and around Monrovia.
The occasion was also observed by members of the Liberian media and government officials.
The Western Union Back To School Promotion was climaxed with the conduct of a raffle draw at which time the valuable prizes are given out to people. It was geared towards encouraging parents as well as students to transact money transfer business and get handsome prizes for each academic year that the event takes place.
