Residents win big at World Market Center
Three Las Vegas Valley residents were among the lucky winners in The Fashion 500 Runway Rewards promotion held during the winter home-furnishings trade show at the World Market Center earlier this month.
Ten buyers and designers were selected randomly to win $5,000 during the first four days of the five-day market.
Adam Gordon of Las Vegas was a Tuesday winner, while Russ Smelser, Dorothy Robinson, both of Las Vegas, and Kelly Cozzolino of Henderson were Thursday winners.
The promotion also included a $250,000 grand prize, which was won by Tim Koerner of Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. Celebrity host Robin Leach was on hand to announce the winner and present a check to Koerner.
Registered buyers and designers who attended the market were automatically entered into the drawings when their badges were scanned by special radio frequency units that were placed at the entrances of each building at the World Market Center and the MGM Grand Exhibition Hall, where temporary exhibits were displayed.
