When we first notified Brian G. that he was the $50,000 grand prize winner of ditech’s “Loans That Take You Home” summer sweepstakes, he didn’t believe us.
“The lawyer’s office called me at work and left a message,” Brian explained. “Also, I saw an email that said, ‘ditech Sweepstakes,’ and I thought, what is this all about? Then I remembered that while I was on the phone to ditech with a question about my mortgage, the agent asked if I wanted to enter the ’Loans That Take You Home’ sweepstakes. Of course, I said yes!”
Even after another phone call, reassuring him that he’d won, Brian still had his doubts. It wasn’t until he had spoken with the supervisor for the sweepstakes that he began to believe he had actually won the $50,000 grand prize. And according to Brian, until he and his family were in the limo on the way to the hotel for the check presentation, “my wife didn’t believe it either.”
For Brian’s family, winning this sweepstakes means a lot. Brian explained, “We’re a Christian family and we believe in the idea of tithing. We’ve done it for the past four or five years. Before we learned that I had won the sweepstakes, my wife and I decided to do it again this year. We believe that when we give, it will come back to us in some way. It always does.”
When asked how he would spend the $50,000, he said the first thing he looked forward to spending was more time with his family. “The winnings provide us with some security. Sometimes it seems like we just make ends meet, especially with two small kids and a teenage boy.”
Brian’s plans include paying bills and clothes shopping for his girls in particular, but “we also had the chance to do a few things we couldn’t without a little extra money.” He said, “My father-in-law is a big-time Alabama football fan, so my wife and I took him to the Alabama and Texas A&M game!”
