SMITHFIELD resident Cathi Murphy is putting her recent good fortune down to karma.
Late last month Mrs Murphy was named the winner of a new Alfa Romeo Giulietta as part of Stockland Wetherill Park's 30th birthday promotional prize give away.
Had it not been for her sense of community, her winning ticket would never have made it to the entry barrel.
Mrs Murphy had finished her shopping at Woolworths and before leaving the centre visited the ATM.
The woman before her left her card in the machine so Mrs Murphy did the right thing and took it to the Stockland customer care desk.
It was the customer care team member who asked if Mrs Murphy had spent more than $100 and subsequently handed her an entry.
It was her only entry in the 30 day promotion.
On the night of the draw, Thursday, August 22, Mrs Murphy's ticket was the first drawn from the barrel. She and seven other finalists were handed an envelope containing a number plate.
The finalist with the plate matching the car, WIN ALFA, was declared the winner.
Needless to say, Mrs Murphy was overwhelmed when she opened her envelope.
The car was provided by Peter Warren Fiat Alfa.
