“I am thrilled to be chosen, and on the same day as my mother’s birthday,” Allen said

The 3TVPhoenix contest, conducted in partnership with Arizona Central Credit Union, encouraged viewers to watch the station’s 6:00 a.m. Good Morning Arizona program for a code word that then had to be entered on the station’s Facebook page.

Lisa Allen of Scottsdale was chosen at random from all other code-entering participants. She plans to apply the monthly $1,000 prize to her mortgage payments for the next 12 months. Allen, a stay-at-home mom, expressed her surprise and gratitude at winning, indicating that the help with her mortgage would make it easier for her to afford to deal with some other recent and unexpected expenses, such as repairing her dryer!

“I am thrilled to be chosen, and on the same day as my mother’s birthday,” Allen said – then going on to indicate that she is such a regular viewer of Good Morning Arizona, that she even records it so she can replay the morning’s program on those days when she can’t watch it live.On Monday June 1st, 3TVPhoenix and Arizona Central Credit Union officials traveled to Allen’s home to present her with a certificate representing her winnings. According to Todd Pearson, President and CEO of Arizona Central, the credit union was pleased to participate in a program that helped both organizations continue their tradition of supporting the communities they both serve. “This was a great way for us to not only help out the contest winner with a significant budget item, but to also recognize the top-notch news and information coverage that 3TVPhoenix provides the region,” Pearson said.
