Gimme 5 – Daughter Accepts Mom’s Grand Prize

Channel Five’s twenty-fifth anniversary as a television station came last year. But last week our longest-running program other than this newscast marked a similar anniversary too. That’s right; it has been twenty-five years since Gimme 5 first premiered on this station in 1992. And while it’s always fun to win prizes – and in our case to give them away – the drama of the final prize package giveaway just can’t be beat. This year’s winner is Althea Carr of Lindo’s Alley in Belize City. While her medical problems kept her away from our Coney Drive studios today, she sent her daughter Sherilyn Foster and other family members to collect in her place. Sherilyn told News Five that her mom is over the moon after finally claiming a Gimme Five prize – and the big one, no less.

“On her behalf, anything you’d like to say to Channel Five in terms of winning the grand prize?”

 

Sherilyn Foster

“Thanks for everything, and I am glad my mom wins, because she’s so excited and happy. [It’s] the first time ih win and she always buys tickets.”

 

Aaron Humes

“How long has she been buying tickets?”

 

Sherilyn Foster

“I don’t know how long and how much she buys but she always buys and she always listens.”

 

The prizes range from airline tickets to Christmas hampers and electronics as well as a mattress and a photo shoot.
