Vallejo City Floral Co. Gives Away iPad

Vallejo City Floral Co. presents contest winner Jeanette with her new iPad.

Online PR News – 24-January-2012 – – While most people won’t see a connection between the two, Jeanette H. will always link flowers with her new iPad. She won the new Apple product in the Vallejo City Floral Co.’s “Win an iPad” contest that started in November and ended on December 31, 2011. Jeanette’s name was chosen randomly from those who had entered on Vallejo City Floral’s or Jory’s Flowers’s website. Don Hotton, owner of the two businesses, said the contest had a large number of entries and that “the overwhelming response to the giveaway was fantastic.”

Jeanette, who operates a daycare in Vallejo City, was incredibly excited when Don called to let her know she had won. She later told him that she had immediately called and texted her friends and her children, but she didn’t get any replies. When she talked to her children later, they told her they didn’t return her messages because they thought she was pulling a prank on them.

Don presented Jeanette with her new iPad on her birthday, and she says it’s the best drawing prize she’s ever won. When asked what she planned to do with the device, she responded that she is going to let the kids at her daycare take turns playing with it. She went on to say that she is absolutely thrilled to have won and that she has been telling all of her friends about the contest and about Vallejo City Floral Co.

Don said, “I like to see people that truly care about getting something for free. Jeanette was so trilled and appreciative that it made me feel that, for one moment, I brought some happiness to someone who truly deserved it. The fact that she runs a day care for young children and was going to teach her kids how to us it was very cool.”
