Lucky Rabbit wins $5000 in Newmarket!

Lucky Rabbit wins $5000 in Newmarket!

By Mark Knoff-Thomas, Chief Executive, Newmarket Business Association

August 25, 2014:

When purchasing a stuffed toy rabbit at Allium in Newmarket, Brendon McLean didn’t think it would go on to bring him any luck. Fortune has it though; this purchase was to give Brendon more than he’d bargained for - $5000 to be exact!

Brendon was drawn as the winner of Newmarket’s annual Win an ANZ Winter Shopping Spree promotion - a partnership between the Newmarket Business Association and the Newmarket Branch of ANZ bank. Brendon later revealed that the timing couldn’t have been better as that day he’d also welcomed the arrival of his first child – a son named Quinn Alexander.

Mark Knoff-Thomas, Chief Executive of the Newmarket Business Association was thrilled to hear Brendon’s news. “It’s a wonderful thing to be able to give money away, but this time its extra special. We couldn’t be happier for Brendon and his family and I’m sure this money will be of help in the coming months!”
