Good news travels fast, and five families living hundreds of kilometers apart were celebrating their good fortune this week when they learnt that they are the first winners of a fully-paid-for holiday in Singapore, courtesy of Ceylinco Life.
The five families from Beliatta, Dambulla, Badulla, Wennappuwa and Pilimatalawa will be joined by 45 others selected through a series of monthly draws which will culminate in the fifth Ceylinco Life Family Savari, comprising of visits to China, Singapore and a day’s outing at Leisure World, in 2012.
The first draw for this latest edition of the life insurance leader’s grand annual promotion was conducted on Friday 9 September and also involved the selection of the first 20 families that will be invited to spend a day at the Leisure World theme park in Avissawella.
In all, 60 people from 15 policyholder families will be rewarded with an all-expenses-paid holiday in China, while 200 people representing 50 policyholder families will win a holiday in Singapore, and 2,000 others from 500 policyholder families will spend a day at Leisure World at ‘Family Savari 5.’
