Mail Center Okinawa Market Raffle winners

Date Posted: 2009-10-15

The new Kadena BX complex had it’s grand opening on Oct 2 through 5, and a raffle for customers was among the promotional events of the occasion. The new Mail Center and Okinawa Market Concession raffled away three prizes.

Medina Edjoanet won the grand prize of an Okinawa Sanshin. Edjoanet is originally from Puerto Rico, came to Okinawa through North Carolina, and has been here almost one and half years. She says that this is her and her husband’s first tour to overseas. She also gives special thanks to “My good friend Tiffany Biardino, as she’s the one who got me to participate in this raffle in the first place.”

Andre A. Bailey and Kim Bailey won a bottle of Okinawan Habu Sake with the snake in the bottle and all. They have been on Okinawa two years. “I’m really happy with my prize, and am looking forward for a great party to celebrate my winning,” Andre says, adding that he’s “not so sure about opening the snake bottle though.”

Charissa Cash from San Diego, CA, won a Dragon Vase, and said winning the prize feels great “as I usually don’t win anything in these contests.” She has been here two and half years, and her favorite pastime is to go to various festivals and other cultural events on the island.
