On air proposal makes for fantastic Friday in Christchurch


Media Release

15 August 2014

Someone’s Friday just became the most fantastic ever

Raymond Schmidt of Christchurch made a very surprised Dallas pretty happy this morning as he proposed to her after 12 years together, on nationwide TV - thanks to winning $10,000 from Vodafone Fantastic Fridays. He had decided that if he won, his prize would go towards an engagement ring and a wedding ceremony in Fiji.

Young daughters Lucy and Ruby looked on while Raymond asked the love of his life to marry him on the front doorstep of his Spreydon home, on TVNZ Breakfast. It was all part of celebrating the launch of Fantastic Fridays, a new loyalty programme that thanks Kiwis for choosing Vodafone.

But it didn’t stop at the proposal. A generous friend of the family also threw in five nights’ luxury accommodation at a resort in Fiji to ensure that the couple has a wedding to remember. With any luck that special ceremony may just take place on a Friday too, and continue the Fantastic Fridays theme!

Vodafone New Zealand would like to congratulate Raymond, Dallas, Lucy and Ruby on their win, the engagement and for taking part in the Vodafone Fantastic Fridays promotion with Breakfast.

Fantastic Fridays is a customer loyalty initiative that rewards and thanks customers for choosing Vodafone – and connects them to the things they love. Vodafone Fantastic Fridays includes:
