Sharjah school staff celebrate after winning cars, Dh100,000 in raffle

Preeja Arun, a social studies teacher at New Indian Model School in Sharjah, has been named the winner of an Infiniti mega raffle, held daily at the Dubai Shopping Festival.

A group of school staff are celebrating after winning two vehicles and Dh100,000 in cash in a raffle.

Preeja Arun, a social studies teacher at New Indian Model School in Sharjah, has been named the winner of an Infiniti mega raffle, held daily at Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF).

But her prize of two Infiniti models and Dh100,000 in cash will be shared with her husband and 10 of his colleagues at Our Own English High School, Sharjah, as they had all contributed to buying the winning ticket.

We are all so happy, as we have been pooling our money this way for so many years during DSF and did not win. Our strong belief in winning one day has come true. I am not sure what the others plan to do but my husband and I are thinking of investing our share of the money in a property back home, said Preeja, who comes from India.
