Magnificent sunrise for cash cow winner

AN ALBANY woman has taken out a national prize with the Sunrise Cash Cow competition, winning $10,000 before breakfast.

Amy Roggio has been entering the competition on and off for the past few years, but never imagined that she would be the one to receive the winning call.

“I’ve been home so much lately because of all the drama in the world so I’ve been seeing the code words coming up more over the past few weeks, but I never thought I would win,” she said.

“They give you a call and you have to answer within three rings.

“For WA people it’s usually pretty early in the morning so I’d just woken up to my phone flashing with a Sydney number, and I thought it was either them or probably Telstra telling me to pay my bill.”

The win couldn’t have come at a better time.

Like many Australians, Ms Roggio had lost her casual job due to the pandemic.

“I felt amazing when they called me, I didn’t quite believe, I thought I was dreaming,” she said.

“I’m a uni student and I lost my casual job at the start of all of this so it will definitely help me out.

“It’s come at the perfect time.”
