LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Reed’s, Inc. (NYSE MKT: REED) today announces the three winners of its “25 Years of Ginger Love” contest who will receive company common stock, cases of Reed’s Ginger Brews, T-shirts and Reed’s Moscow Mule mugs – all prizes worth nearly $24,000.
The grand prize winner, Jennifer Rawlins, of Fairfield, Ohio, won shares of Reed’s common stock (NYSE MKT: REED) just by entering the sweepstakes on Reed’s Facebook page at some point over the last six months. The prize pack is valued at approximately $15,0001, and includes 2,500 shares of stock, a case of Reed’s Ginger Brew, Reed’s Moscow Mule mugs and other company swag. Lawrence Lampron, of Livonia, Mich., won 1,000 Reed’s shares; and Daniel French, of Greeley, Colo., won 500 shares. Both also won a case of Reed’s Ginger Brew and other company swag.
“I had actually learned of (Reed’s) when my daughter was pregnant with her baby, and she was nauseated,” said Rawlins. “I … found your soda with ginger in it as I thought it would help her belly, and it was a more natural solution. I started reading more and more of the health benefits (of) ginger. I just find it so fitting!”
Chris Reed, founder and CEO of Reed’s, Inc. started the beverage company to share his passion about ginger’s incredible flavor and healthy properties.
“I wanted to increase the use of ginger in the U.S. diet,” said Reed. “It’s exciting to see a real shift in how people are thinking about what they put in their bodies. We’re proud of our first 25 years.”
Everyone who entered the sweepstakes will receive a $5 off coupon for the Reed’s online e-commerce. For the remainder of the year, Reed’s will host other contests and giveaways as a way to continue to thank its customers.
