WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Our country took home the most gold at the summer Olympics, and thanks to WWAY’s partnership with Perry’s Emporium, some of our viewers got some gold of their own.
Robert Harris was the big winner in our ‘Go for the Gold’ contest… Or maybe you could say his wife Shirley was the real winner. The Harrises spent their $3,333 on a pair of diamond earrings and a diamond ring. Robert and Shirley say they still can’t hardly believe they won.
“Shocked,” Robert said.
“Surprised. We didn’t imagine that he would win,” Shirley said.
“We got in on the last call-in which was that night,” Robert said. “Just surprised. It was fun.”
The Harrises sure had fun buying their bling.
The second and third place contest winners went home with pieces of actual gold.
