BrandSource member Ken’s Appliance and Mattress in Grand Island, Neb., conducted a National Nurse’s Day giveaway that culminated this week with the winners announced in a drawing on Facebook Live.

General Manager Meridith Turner conducted the contest and proclaimed that the response was overwhelming. “We had a ton of entries and were amazed at the fact that they came from all over the state,” she told YSN. “Each of them go above and beyond the call of duty every day and all of them are deserving of recognition.”

The store really wanted to accomplish three things, Turner explained. “First and foremost, we wanted to honor the nurses. Second, we wanted to purchase the gift cards from our local business friends in the community to help support them. And lastly, we wanted to help drive traffic to our website to put our name in front of more potential customers and let them know we are open for business.”

The three contest winners were… Nurses Toni Nielson, Rebecca Hadenfeldt and Peggy Hemmer.

Each received $100 gift cards from local merchants and the thanks and praise of Meridith and the entire staff at Ken’s. Keep up the good work!
