Aaron's and "The Wendy Williams Show" Give Away New Dining, Kitchen, Laundry Room to Third "Win a Room in June" Winner
ATLANTA - June 19, 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," surprised its third "Win a Room in June" contestant, Jacqueline Wilson, from Otisville, NY, with a new dining, kitchen and laundry room set as a part of the "Win a Room in June" contest.
With three men in her home –her husband of 26 years and two adult sons – Wilson is in desperate need of new appliances. She's attempted to cook meals on an outdated stove that has only three burners, broken knobs and an oven door that sticks. Currently without a dining room table, her family cannot share meals comfortably together. The new dining, kitchen, laundry room set includes a Frigidaire® Stainless Steel Range, Maytag® 22 cu. ft. French Door Stainless Steel Refrigerator and a five-piece Avenue Dining Room Set, crafted with design and dining comfort. To complete the full dining, kitchen and laundry room set, Wilson will also receive a, high-efficiency Samsung® Top Load Washer and a Samsung® Dryer.
"It's been such a rewarding experience to be able to give these winners and their families a fresh, new home environment," said Andrea Freeman, Aaron's Vice President of Marketing. "We're so happy we can be a part of helping Jacqueline and her family create new memories around the dinner table. We wouldn't be able to do this without our partnership with 'The Wendy Williams Show,' which represents the Aaron's promise to help families own the life they want."
In addition to the room makeovers, Wilson 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.
Prior to awarding Wilson the new dining, kitchen and laundry room set, Aaron's gave away a tech-ready bedroom and a living room set with an electronics entertainment package to two other winners on "The Wendy Williams Show." The last winner will receive new furniture and electronics for two kids' bedrooms provided by Aaron's.
Wilson was chosen out of more than 16,500 families who entered the contest at http://community.wendyshow.com/aarons.
Karen Bonck, Senior Vice President of Branded Partnerships for Debmar-Mercury, which syndicates and distributes "The Wendy Williams Show," added, "The show reviewed thousands of entrants for this week's giveaway and choosing a winner was no simple task, but the heartwarming Wilson entry rose to the top. I can't believe we only have one more room giveaway - it's been an exciting June thanks to our friends at Aaron's!"
Aaron's makes owning easy through lease ownership and the room makeovers will enable the deserving weekly winners to own the life they want.
