PHUKET: Chalong housewife Sompit Khaopong claimed a brand-new Toyota Altis 1.6, valued at more than 800,000 baht, as the grand prize in the annual Phuket Red Cross Fair lucky draw.

Governor Nisit Jansomwong and his wife Mrs Nutsaree, who is the president of the Phuket Red Cross, presented the car to Mrs Sompit at the Phuket Red Cross head office at Saphan Hin yesterday.

“I never expected to win,” Mrs Sompit said, adding that she bought only two tickets. “I don’t know what else to say. I am thankful to the Red Cross and I will keep supporting the Red Cross Fair.”

Her winning ticket bore the lucky number 18195.

Governor Nisit and Mrs Nutsaree also presented other major prizes won through lucky draws at this year’s fair (story here).

Ratree Pattakor from Phuket Town claimed her prize of gold valued at about 191,000 baht (ticket 16006), and Surasak Ngeabsangad from Mai Khao claimed gold valued at about 95,500 baht (ticket 32368).

Arisara Yukhonthorn, Pitikorn Maneesri and Nawarat Somnam also arrived in person to claim one motorcycle each (tickets 17534, 38503 and 59747).

“Many minor prizes, such as electric fans, have yet to be claimed by winners,” said Sarawut Rukkaw of the Phuket Red Cross.

Winners have until February 28 to claim their prizes.

“After then, unclaimed prizes will be donated to the Red Cross,” Mr Sarawut said.
