Chicago, IL., Aug. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guaranteed Rate, one of the nation’s largest retail mortgage lenders, today announced the first winner of its “Sweep Your Mortgage” giveaway. Meghann Buresh of Norfolk, Nebraska, was randomly drawn for the prize of receiving one month’s mortgage (a $2,000 award) because of the Chicago White Sox sweeping an opponent during the 2018 regular season.
From more than 10,000 sweepstake entries, Mrs. Buresh was randomly selected after the White Sox swept the Tampa Bay Rays series in August. In addition to receiving a mortgage payment for one month, Mrs. Buresh will receive two tickets to a White Sox regular season game and one autographed item by a current or former White Sox player.
“As the official mortgage provider of the Chicago White Sox, it was a home run to reward a baseball fan with something they can use towards their mortgage,” says Stephen Moffat, Chief Marketing Officer at Guaranteed Rate. “I’m especially excited to see that the cash prize will help to make some home updates for Meghann and her family.”
Mrs. Buresh said the timing couldn’t be more perfect. “We’ve been in our home for seven years and postponed some much-needed home improvements. Now I can tackle that flooring project, say good-bye to the old tile and install beautiful hardwood floors throughout the house.”
While searching for holiday gifts for her dad and brother, the avid baseball fans, she decided to enter the Sweepstakes. “Most Nebraskans are Cornhusker fans. But today I’m officially a fan of baseball and the Chicago White Sox. We’re hoping to take a family vacation trip next year, with my parents and siblings’ families to watch the Sox play against the Cubs.”
“There’s plenty of baseball left, which means there is still time to enter the Sweep Your Mortgage giveaway,” added Moffat. The giveaway is open to baseball fans across the country, except for those living in Florida, New York and Rhode Island.
