The holidays aren't always easy for many trying to celebrate, like for Dededo resident Joni White. But, her family received a little something special just two weeks shy of Christmas.

White and her family are the winners of Hit Radio 100 and GPO's $1,000 Black Friday giveaway.

The mother of five said her 10-year-old daughter decided to spend her day off school on Black Friday tuned in to the radio station to get the three Christmas songs played on the air so they could be caller 100 to win the money.

‘If it wasn't for her I would have never gotten this’

"So, thanks to my 10-year-old, she is the one that pulled through and got through on the (phone) line. So if it wasn't for her I would have never gotten this," said White.

White was given the check during a special presentation at Guam Premier Outlets on Tuesday with radio DJs Ronnie Perez and Bobby Wang and GPO marketing and social media coordinator Bingle Joy Pizarro.

"It's going to help a lot. To win this money is an awesome feeling. At least we can get last minute gifts for my kids. Usually, Christmas we don't really do much," she said.
