Update: 1:00PM LABASA programmer Ajeshni Chand was all smiles when she received the keys to her brand new 2013 Santa Fe SUV this week for winning the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus text promotion.
The Westpac Banking Corporation staff member, who is based in Suva, said she did not expect to win the main prize worth $79,000 and participated in the competition five times.
Vodafone Fiji sponsorship and public relations manager Liga Gukisuva said the Hibiscus Festival continued to grow each year with more companies participating, new rides and exhibitors coming on board.
"New programs such financial inclusion and financial literacy, food security awareness campaigns, campaigns against non-communicable diseases for healthy living and micro-enterprise initiatives were all part of week-long Vodafone Hibiscus carnival," he said today.
He said 200,000 people participated in the joint text promotion between Vodafone Fiji and the Hibiscus Event Group.
