We're happy to announce the winner of our "Home Free For A Year" Sweepstakes from 7NEWS and First Option Lending.
Michelle Bowles, of Greeley, is the lucky winner of the "Home Free For A Year" contest and will get a $1,500 check every month for 12 months, starting May 1 to help pay her monthly mortgage.
"I feel truly blessed that this has come our way and it's just been a great burden lifted from our family and will help us with home repairs and some extra breathing room for our family," Bowles said as she accepted the check.
She said the contest on the 7NEWS Facebook page was "simple and easy and I just thought, 'Why not?'"
Michelle said the money will really help because her mother, who is battling cancer, has moved in with her.
The check was presented Wednesday evening by First Option Lending Branch Manager Michael Scherer at their branch office at 2000 S. Colorado Blvd.
