Manchester, N.H. (Jan. 24, 2012) - Robin Kloos of Enfield, N.H. has received a complete digital home makeover valued at more than $2,100 courtesy of FairPoint Communications. Her name was selected from more than 11,000 entries in FairPoint's Connect Your Home Sweepstakes.
On Saturday, Kloos received the grand prize, which included a 47-inch, Internet-ready HDTV, surround-sound speaker system, Internet-ready game console, a family-rated sports game and pre-paid FairPoint Internet Service for six months.
For Kloos, a speech-language pathologist at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital and Genesis Lebanon Center, the prize couldn't have come at a better time as her family's 15-year-old television is on its last leg.
"This is a fabulous entertainment upgrade for our family that we couldn't have put together on our own, especially given the current economy," said Kloos. "Our two children will love playing games on the big screen and I can also work with clients over the Internet remotely via video chat, which works great on FairPoint's high-speed DSL."
FairPoint's Connect Your Home Sweepstakes launched in August 2011 and offered contestants an opportunity to win a home entertainment package and six months of FairPoint Internet Service.
"Nowhere are your connections to friends and family more important than at home," said Pat McHugh, New Hampshire state president of FairPoint Communications. "FairPoint is committed to providing fast, reliable service so you can confidently bring together your friends, family and favorites, transforming your home connection experience."
