Two more $1,000 Winners

H&R Block in West Union topped off their tax season’s cash-give-away by issuing two $1,000 checks to another pair of lucky winners of the company’s nationwide “1,000 win $1,000 Sweepstakes”, bringing the total number of winners to six.

“Both of their names were drawn on the last day of the sweepstakes,” said H&R owner, Jeff Newman, “Last day is as good as the first, they’re both winners.”

Newman presented the first $1,000 prize to Anita Ball of Sardinia, who plans to use the extra cash for a special vacation. “I can’t tell you where I’m going,” said Ball, “but I can tell you why – we’re going to see our son, Codie, who is serving in the Navy.” Ball said this would be the first vacation she and her husband, Terry, have ever taken, “We never had a honeymoon or anything, and we’re so excited to go see our son.”

The Balls lived in West Union for 25 years before moving to Sardinia. They have been H&R Block customers for decades. “We’ve always had our taxes prepared at H&R Block,” said Ball, “My husband has been coming here since he was 16 years old.”

“We definitely appreciate customers like Terry and Anita,” said Newman.

Newman presented a second $1,000 check to Kent and Miranda Edingfield of Winchester, who said they were first-time customers at the H&R Block office. Kent is employed at Cherry Fork Farm Supply, and is also a volunteer firefighter with the Wayne Township Fire Department. Miranda works at Eagle Creek Nursing Home in West Union. “I can’t believe we won,” she said, “This is the first time I’ve ever won anything.” The Edingfields said they’ll put the money into their savings account until they need it.

Since Jan. 19, the H&R Block Sweepstakes has given away $1,000,000 a day. A total of 32,000 people have won a combined total of $32,000,000. The give-away ended on Feb. 15.
