This prize from Foundation Financial Group is a big help to my family, may God bless those less fortunate than myself.
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) February 10, 2012
William Lucas breathed a sigh of relief last week when executives from Foundation Financial Group presented him with the $15,000 Funding Your Finances grand prize at the John Hancock Observatory in Chicago.
For Lucas, the check couldn’t have come at a better time. Today, he works as a pipe fitter for the local 597 union. Yet for six months in 2011, Lucas was unemployed. At home, Lucas and his schoolteacher wife of 20 years have twin 19-year-old daughters, whom they are putting through college, and a 3-year-old daughter.
“This prize from Foundation Financial Group is a big help to my family,” said Lucas. “May God bless those less fortunate than myself.”
With the grand-prize money, Lucas plans to enjoy a little financial stability and put some money toward his South Chicago home’s mortgage, where he has lived for 15 years, enhance his credit score by paying off some bills and help pay college tuition for his daughters.
“Foundation Financial Group’s goal for Funding Your Finances was to help lessen the financial burdens of American families,” said Foundation Financial Group’s Subsidiaries COO, David Gueterman. “We want to make a positive impact in someone’s life and we believe we have done this twice with the Funding Your Finances giveaway.”
Foundation Financial Group launched the sweepstakes in Feb. 2011 to thank families for helping make the company succeed as one of the fastest-growing financial services firms in the U.S. Foundation Financial Group awarded its first $15,000 grand prize in Aug. 2011 to a Minnesota woman.
In Jan. 2012, Foundation Financial Group announced its new “Start Living” sweepstakes, where individuals can enter to win a trip for two to their dream Southwest Airlines Vacation destination.
