THE long-awaited “Grow with Every Challenge, Win Your Dream” contest by MARIGOLD UHT Milk and Sun Life Malaysia has come to a rewarding end for 23 lucky winners.
Among the prizes worth up to RM100,000 are cash prizes for the top two winners – RM20,000 and RM10,000 in respective order and RM5,000 cash for six winners along with iPad Air Tablets worth RM2,899 each for fifteen consolation winners.
After the winner announcement that went live on MARIGOLD UHT Milk’s Facebook and Instagram platforms on Nov 26, 2022, the prize-giving ceremony was then held at Avante Hotel, Petaling Jaya on Dec 5, 2022.
According to Malaysia Milk Sdn Bhd general manager Poh Eng Lip, the contest is designed to provide an encouraging platform to help parents realise their children’s full potential.
“We applaud all parents who prioritise their children’s health and education. Access to good nutrition and quality education ensure the prosperity of our nation,” he added.
Speaking at the ceremony was also Sun Life Malaysia CEO and president/country head Raymond Lew.
“Being a trusted lifetime insurance and takaful partner, our mission is not only to help people achieve lifetime financial security and live healthier lives,” he said after congratulating the winners.
“We are also committed to building a more resilient nation. That is why, we believe it is important to support our youth with the right resources and opportunities for them to realise their full potentials.
“We hope the prizes presented today will lay the foundation for them to build a better future.”
Despite the tough competition, lucky winner Nor Farahanom Nasil, 30, from Kedah happily walked away with RM20,000 cash as the first prize winner.
“Winning this is a great windfall. This money will help ease our family’s day-to-day expenses; however, a big portion will go into my children’s education fund. A big thank you to MARIGOLD and Sun Life Malaysia for this generous reward,” she said.
Consolation prize winner Lai Kee Ming, 47, from Sarawak said the contest was easy to join. “My whole family drinks MARIGOLD UHT Milk. All I had to do was simply buy more to stand a better chance at winning.”
Lai’s efforts paid off with him winning the sleek iPad Air Tablet as one of the 15 winners in that category.
Meanwhile, Cotra Enterprises head of marketing Yap Jay Queen thanked all Malaysians for their participation and continued support, adding that through their partnership with Sun Life Malaysia they had strengthened their commitment to reward customers for their loyalty by encouraging daily consumption of milk via the contest.
