Dubai: Lady Luck has smiled for the third time on Julietta Encarnacion who won a grand cash prize of Dh350,000 in the Nissan Grand Raffle during the 25th edition of the Dubai Shopping Festival.
Encarnacion, a 46-year old Filipina Account Manager and Dubai expatriate who is a mother of two kids was thrilled beyond words.
“I was asleep, and I heard my phone ring at night and a man said I had won. My heart was racing and of course, I couldn’t go back to bed. I emptied my bag and went through all my raffle tickets – I had bought around 15 of them this year knowing my luck and hoping to win big. When I found the winning ticket, reality finally hit home.”
“I am truly grateful. I can now secure my son’s future education and buy farmland back home in the Philippines,” she said.
Encarnacion who has daughter pursuing her masters in South Korea and a son in grade 9 has been lucky earlier winning an iPad and tablet in other raffle draws. This is her first win in DSF.
