ATLANTA - June 12, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Aaron's, Inc., (NYSE: AAN), a leading lease-to-own specialty retailer that offers flexible payment options for furniture, electronics and appliances, in partnership with "The Wendy Williams Show," presented Rosa Serna, the second winner of the "Win a Room in June" contest, with a brand new living room group on the set of The Wendy Williams Show this week.
Aaron's and The Wendy Williams Show surprised San Antonio resident Rosa Serna and her family with a brand new living room group and electronics entertainment package as a part of the 'Win a Room in June' contest.
Rosa Serna and her husband received round-trip air transportation to New York to attend a taping of "The Wendy Williams Show," hotel accommodations for one night and ground transportation to the show. Serna was thrilled when Wendy Williams announced on the show that she was the winner of the "Win a Room in June" Living Room group. Wendy Williams invited Serna onstage to see her brand new living room group featuring a Woodhaven Central Park Living Room Furniture Collection and an electronics entertainment package.
Serna, a San Antonio resident, and her husband have been married for almost six years and have three young boys all under the age of 5. The couple moved into their new home a year ago but has been unable to furnish it due to raising three children on a tight budget. Serna and her husband will be able to relax and spend time with their children on their new eight-piece Woodhaven Central Park Living Room Collection which includes a sofa, loveseat, cocktail table, two end tables, a decorative rug and lamps.
The new living room will be entertainment-ready with a new RCA® 65" Smart LED TV complete with 65" TV Stand, Philips® 1000 Watt 3D Blu Ray Smart Home Theater System, Samsung® 3400W Giga System, and a Samsung® Galaxy Note 10" Wifi Tablet. The family will also receive a Recliner Rocker with Frosty Fridge. The Recliner Rocker features a massage function, adding an additional level of comfort, alongside a frosty fridge that keeps up to four drinks cool for hours.
"We're so excited to present the Serna family with this amazing new living room group that will provide both a comfortable and entertaining atmosphere for Rosa and her family," said Andrea Freeman, Aaron's Vice President of Marketing. "We have a great partnership with 'The Wendy Williams Show' and are thrilled to bring these four room giveaway opportunities to thousands of the show's fans across the country. As we give away a new room each week in June, we're helping others own the life they want."
