Housewife wins million in San Miguel Beer On-Air promo

Bacolod City, Negros Occidental-- Answered prayers. That was the reaction of 53-year-old housewife from Bacolod City when she won P1 million in San Miguel Brewery's On-Air Millionaire promo at Aksyon Radyo.

Ma. Victoria Cortez and her family will soon realize their dream of acquiring their own house and lot as she intends to spend her winnings in this investment.

"Sobra guid ang kalipay ko sang gin pabalo ko sang taga Love Radio nga ako ang nagdaug (I was so happy when I was informed by a staff from Love Radio that I won)," Cortez said. Love Radio is the FM station of MBC Aksyon Radio in Bacolod City.

She said she wasn't able to listen to the draw as she was visiting relatives in Isabela town in southern Negros Occidental. When she was informed of her good fortune, she added that she cannot explain her feelings. "Thank you, Lord. Thank you, SMB."

She said she gathered crowns of various SMB brands every time she and her husband go for a drink either in nearby sari-sari stores or just at home. Every night, she said, she would patiently fill up entries and dropped them in the station's box.

Dependent on her husband's meager income from contractual jobs, she said, she would enter various radio promos. Sometimes, she would win P1,500 from weekly draws and this will augment her family's basic needs.

Cortez, her carpenter-husband Jeffrey and son John Mari, 16, are informal settlers in Purok Cereza South, Northdrive in Bacolod. With her winnings, she said they will purchase their dream home. Portion of it will also finance her son's education. John Mari is an incoming freshman at the La Consolacion College-Isabela, who will take Hotel and Restaurant Management.

In partnership with MBC radio stations nationwide, the promo started January 19 until April 19, 2014. For more delightful treats and promos, visit the San Miguel Beer Official Facebook fan pages.
