Bahrain’s pioneer in commercial and retail banking, BBK, recently announced the names of their four lucky Al Hayrat Ramadan weekly winners. The winners received the prize money at a special handover ceremony that was hosted at the Bank’s headquarters on the 8th of September 2010. The cheques were handed over by Axel Hofmann, Head of Retail Banking.
For the holy month of Ramadan, BBK ran a promotion for the fourth year in a row, whereby instead of the regular monthly draws, weekly draws were held, with the prize money growing in size as each week progressed and a final Eid draw with a bumper cash prize. Furthermore, the eligibility criterion of making the deposits a month before the draw date was reduced to a week during this promotion.
Ms. Sarah Al Mudaifea, winner of the first weekly draw of $20,000 prize, expressed her complete shock and surprise when receiving the news of her unexpected win, as it had been her father who had originally invested in her name without her knowing, which has further added to Ms. Sarah’s delight at winning.
Mr. Hasan Al Dhaen, winner of the second weekly prize of $25,000 and long standing loyal customer of BBK’s, thanked the bank for the excellent services and products it has on offer, and has mentioned his family’s plans to enjoy the prize during Eid celebrations.
Mr. Salman Abdulaziz Al Hasan was the winner of the third week of Ramadan prize of $30,000. Mr. Salman said that he had a feeling that he would win with Al Hayrat and that he would regularly follow the monthly winners announcements to check for his name.
The grand Eid prize winner of $50,000 was Mr. Yousif Ahmed Zaed, was extremely overjoyed at winning with Al Hayrat, and has extended his sincerest thanks and appreciation to BBK’s employees for their efficient service.
