A Filipina working in Abu Dhabi was one of the ten lucky winners of 1 million dirhams in the latest monthly draw of Big Ticket raffles held on October 5, 2017 at the Arrivals Hall of the Abu Dhabi International Airport.
According to Expat Media, 47-year-old Leilani Quijano del Rosario was the only woman among the 10 lucky winners, which was dominated by Indian nationals.
Del Rosario, who is working as a nurse in Abu Dhabi for 14 years now, said she shared the cost of the ticket with 15 friends and that her share of the prize is 200,000 Dirhams (around P2.7 million). The money would be used to pay her loans in the Philippines and for the education and living expenses of her three children, she said.
This is not her first time to get lucky in a raffle draw, shared Del Rosario. Two years ago, she said she won a car – a Volkswagen Touareg – in a mall raffle draw.
