On Thursday the 5th of November, Christmas came early for one lucky family on the Northern Beaches. The Lau Family won a major prize from Sunbeam, receiving $10,000 from a National Father's Day competition based around Sunbeam Blenders.

Awarded at Harvey Norman, Balgowlah, where the family had purchased their Sunbeam blender, the $10,000 prize was given to the entrant that showed exceptional creativity and flair while answering the question, "How would you spoil your Dad with $10,000 this Fathers Day?"

The Lau family submitted a heart-warming poem, which described how they would love to treat their father to much needed dental work.

According to Friederike Bohlen, Product Manager for Food Preparation &Novelty, "It was a tough task to choose from the numerous entries as many were very original and creative."

"All of the team here at Sunbeam agreed that the poem was a beautiful way for the Lau family to show their love and appreciation for their father. It was very refreshing to read and really captured the spirit of Father's Day," she continued. The Lau family was grateful to receive their prize money and plan on organising for their Dad to receive the necessary medical attention.
