Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 January 2020: An eight-year old girl, Fatima has won a Nissan Sentra in the Nissan Grand Raffle, part of the 25th edition of the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) taking place all across the emirate, thanks to the open-hearted gesture of her 67-year old grandfather, who filled in raffle coupons with the names of his granddaughters.
“I was changing my car oil at the petrol station near City Centre Mirdif and got several raffles coupons for a Nissan car, not for myself, but for my loving grandchildren. I put down each of their names, but I knew if I won, the prize would go to my sweet Fatima,” said the grandfather, Ahmed Al Ali.
“I don’t have favourites among my grandchildren, and I love them all, but Fatima is the sweetest child, and also she is feeling unwell now. She truly deserves this win,” he continued.
“I received a call on 8 January and as luck would have it, Fatima’s name won. I was so excited to break the news to my son about the win. We have decided that it would be best to sell the car and put the funds into a bank account to secure Fatima’s future,” he said.
The Nissan Grand Raffle will give away one of five car models every day–the Nissan Patrol 2020, Nissan Pathfinder 2019, Nissan X-TRAIL 2020, Nissan Kicks 2020 and Nissan Sentra 2020. The raffle can be entered upon a purchase of items worth a minimum of AED 25 from any EPCO or ENOC station. In total, 37 cars will be given away during DSF and a grand prize of AED 350,000 will be awarded on the last day of DSF.
