(Williamsville, NY) - Today, Tops Friendly Markets awarded David Cooke of Ransomville, NY with the Tops Aloha Healthy Prize valued at $5,000! Cooke, a local school bus driver, won the prize by taking better care of his and his family’s health by purchasing more fruits and vegetables during the Tops Aloha Healthy campaign which kicked off during the first quarter of 2019 and wrapped up March 23, 2019.

Shoppers could enter online or increase their chances of enjoying all the sun and fun by starting to eat healthier! Participants received an extra chance to win the tropical getaway vacation when they shopped in-store or on-line!

“I’ve never won anything like this before,” David told Tops executives when asked of what he thought of his prize. “I’ve won a few coffees at Timmy’s, but this is really amazing.” The prize, which is valued at $5,000 can be used toward anything the winner choses, including, but not limited to a tropical vacation. While a tropical vacation would be nice, David and his wife, Melody, recently bought a new home and this prize will certainly help him put on a much needed roof. “The timing of this is perfect,” David said.

David was joined today at the Tops located at 5827 S. Transit Road in Lockport, NY with his wife Melody, great grand-daughter Eleanor, and Tops store team members including Tops store manager, Mike Shanahan, for a check presentation and reception.
