The credit union leader offered an opportunity for two members who either referred a friend or opened a new Go Premium Checking Account to enter for an entertaining chance to win up to $200k. GTE then added a third way to win as a creative musical submission via YouTube. The Tampa-based credit union selected three lucky individuals for the opportunity at a life-changing experience.
The contestants will gather on Friday, June 15 at Rock Brothers Brewing, located at 1901 N. 15th Street in Ybor. Each contestant will receive a series of envelopes with varying amounts: $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $200,000. The first five matching envelopes will be the amount the participant will take home. The minimum that anyone will walk away with will be at least $500.
The event will have music by the band, Have Gun Will Travel, in conjunction with updates from the credit union’s President and CEO, Brian Best. There will also be a performance by Sarah Morey, an 18-year-old musician who submitted via YouTube, followed by the exciting main event of three people’s lives potentially being forever changed.
“We’re always thinking of innovative ways to impact our community and give back to our members,” says Mandy Zurbrick, SVP Chief Marketing Officer of GTE Financial. “This event will reward three hard-working members in a meaningful and memorable way,” Zurbrick added.
