(KUTV) - As promised, we sent our 2News in the Morning Anchors to surprise a lucky woman in a local Big Lots! store with a spontaneous $500 shopping spree.
Anchors Ron Bird and Mary Nickles took Mirela Avdovic off guard as she shopped with her husband and young daughter Thursday at the Big Lots! store in Murray. Avdovic is a new homeowner and was perusing the furniture section when 2News informed her she had won a $500 gift card.
"This is like a miracle. I don't know. It's unexplainable," she said in disbelief.
Watch the video to find out more about her reaction to receiving an unexpected $500 boost to her shopping budget.
KUTV is choosing a winner from submitted nominations to a deserving woman who has been identified as making a positive difference in her community. The winner chosen is allowed to pick a local charity close to her heart to receive a $500 gift card from Big Lots!
