TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RSVP Publications, the nation's largest luxury card pack direct mail company, announces Charles Meehan of Columbia, SC, as the winner of the company's nationwide summer sweepstakes "Win a Luxury Timepiece or $10,000 Cash."
Meehan was selected from thousands of entrants to receive the $10,000 prize. The check was awarded on Monday at a special event hosted by The Melting Pot of Columbia, SC.
"We were surprised, and of course thrilled, to find out we had won," said Meehan.
Dave Tropf, RSVP Publications president and founder, commented, "It's always a joy to notify our sweepstakes winners during the year. Mr. Meehan is a well-known Columbia resident known for his volunteer work with the Boy Scouts of America, the North Lake Sertoma Club and his church. We're proud to see such a deserving individual win."
RSVP Columbia franchise owner Greg Kilgore added, "We are delighted to have the winner come from the Columbia market, and especially delighted to see it go to someone who has given back to this community tirelessly over the years."
The event was also attended by several area businesses that advertise in RSVP mailings to affluent homeowners.
"Not only do consumers enjoy the sweepstakes promotions, they're engaging with our brand, and many of our advertisers are receiving more calls," said Tropf. "Our call tracking technology shows us that call volume is up for many of our clients compared to the period before when we did not feature a national promotion."
The sweepstakes winner for the next promotion "Win $10,000 for the Holidays" will be chosen on December 5, 2013. The sweepstakes is open to residents in participating RSVP markets. Consumers can go to www.rsvppublications.com and enter for a chance to win.
