Rosalie Marin Wins $10,000 From Courts Raffle

A Belize City mother of three is tonight the winner of ten thousand dollars courtesy of Courts Belize Limited. On Friday, Rosalie Marin’s name was chosen as the winner of a suppliers’ raffle after she bought a Whirlpool dryer in October of this year. It’s one of many ways in which the company is giving back to its customers says Senior Marketing Officer Kovenka Rodriguez James. For Marin, she thought it was a prank when she first got the call, but later realized that she was indeed that lucky. Today, we caught up with Marin when she received the big cheque at Courts.

“I couldn’t believe it. Well in one way I believed it, but like it didn’t register. So I thought it was a prank. At first I thought it was prank.”

“Now that it is confirmed; you have your ten thousand dollars in hand, what are you going to do with it, your plans?”


Rosalie Marin

“Well I am going to put it in my credit union. Yes.”


Duane Moody

“Only that? No idea as to what you are going to do with it? Buy a car; continue shopping at Courts?”


Rosalie Marin

“Of course. It is going to be put to good use; that’s why I am putting it in the credit union until I decide what’s the best use I have for it.”

“She’s definitely one of our regular customers and she purchased a whirlpool dryer. So with one whirlpool dryer she won ten thousand dollars. I know this is exciting right? Ten thousand dollars. With every whirlpool purchase, customers got a chance to win ten thousand dollars. How we chose it? We selected from each branch a winner and overall, we selected from the seven winners, one winner. And the person was from Belize so ten thousand dollars to this lucky winner. We have many raffles. And this is a supplier funding and we have many supplier funding over the year and this is just one of them. We have Frigidaire, we have Whirlpool, we have Mabe and now we have our grand prize which is the vehicle—a 2015 Eco Sport which is with one year gas from Puma Energy and one year free comprehensive insurance from RF&G. So with Courts you can’t lose.”
