WINDSOR, Conn., May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced today the winner of its Orange House Sweepstakes™, a national promotion offering one individual the chance to take home $300,000 for retirement. After a random drawing, Kevin Martin of Ohio was selected as the winner of the promotion — providing a solid foundation for his future retirement. The sweepstakes, which was open to eligible entrants1 April 4 through April 24, 2016, encouraged all Americans to get their financial house in order so they can achieve their retirement goals.
The Orange House Sweepstakes was introduced to reinforce the importance of holistic planning. This includes preparing for one of the largest needs and expenses in retirement — a house.
"At Voya, we understand that housing costs account for one of the largest categories of spending in retirement. With the Orange House Sweepstakes, we are thrilled to be able to support Mr. Martin and his family as they work toward their retirement dreams," said Alain Karaoglan, COO, and CEO of Retirement and Investment Solutions, at Voya Financial. "We encourage all Americans to start planning and organizing for retirement today, so they can be in a better position to address these needs in the future. This sweepstakes has allowed us to help one fortunate individual get a head start on that journey today."
A walk down the 'orange carpet'
Disbelief and joy were Martin's reactions when he received the phone call from Voya that he had won the $300,000 windfall. To help add to the excitement, Martin was invited to Voya's corporate headquarters in New York City to claim his winning prize, where he was welcomed with a surprise check presentation and received the "orange carpet" treatment from Voya staff and business leaders. "Winning the Orange House Sweepstakes has been an experience I could have never imagined," noted Martin. "I am so thankful to Voya for this opportunity. The prize money will be extremely helpful for my family on our road to retirement."
Martin plans on using the winnings to help reach his future goals by saving a large portion toward his retirement. While he and his family are currently on the right savings track, the Voya Orange House Sweepstakes will help them get there even faster.
