George Kordahi announces Zeinab Yusef Abdalla Kamal, as the 2010 winner of the Al Danah Prize Draw of 1 Million Kuwaiti Dinars!
Kuwait – 6 January 2011: Gulf Bank today announced the long awaited and much anticipated winner of its latest Million Dinar Al Danah prize draw. Zeinab Yusef Abdalla Kamal’s name was drawn during a special live event hosted by George Kordahi, host of ‘Man Sa Yarbah Al Malyoon’ at The Avenues Mall, in front of a massive cheering and enthusiastic crowd.
The event started with Al Watan TV filming live, and with Gulf Bank’s Hadeel Al Fadhli introducing the “celebrity host” of the evening to a pensive crowd. The event was also streamed live through the Bank’s website, making Gulf Bank the first bank to offer this service to its customers. The ten weekly winners were announced, leading to the much awaited 1 Million Kuwaiti Dinar Draw. Mr. Kordahi tried to make contact with the winner to tell her the great news, but unfortunately she could not be reached. The Bank was told by family members that the winner was not in Kuwait as she was at Omra.
Aly Shalaby, Gulf Bank’s General Manager, Consumer Banking Group, said: “We are delighted to have made Ms. Zeinab Yusef Abdalla Kamal the 2010 Al Danah millionaire and we warmly congratulate her. It is also very special to hear that she is at Omra, and will return to Kuwait with 1 Million Dinars in her bank account. The Al Danah account has rapidly become one of the most popular accounts in Kuwait and we are very pleased that so many people are now able to benefit from it. No other bank in Kuwait or across the Middle East is offering its customers the opportunity to win 1 Million Dinars equivalent in one single draw prize and the Bank is delighted to continue with Al Danah in 2011.”
The Al Danah account is the ideal and most practical account for people that want to save money and at the same time, as has happened to our winner today, have the opportunity to win a prize which is truly life changing.
The event, which was organised to celebrate the winner of the one million dinars, and to announce the 2011 Al Danah draw line up, also featured a pearl that appeared on stage prior to the announcement of the upcoming Al Danah 2011 draw line up. In addition, fans enjoyed Arabic coffee and pearl chocolates as they crowded around George Kordahi to get his autograph and take pictures.
In closing, Aly Shalaby said: “Gulf Bank would also like to place on record its thanks and appreciation to Mr. George Kordahi for being with us at this year’s Al Danah millionaire draw. His presence has helped to make today special as many people in Kuwait enjoyed the show with us.”
The winner of the single biggest prize draw ever offered to account holders in Kuwait was announced following a series of events building up to the draw date, including a press conference at the Sheraton Hotel, where senior executives from the Bank’s management highlighted key features about the Al Danah account.
