TIM and Tracy Seears had 10,000 reasons to smile on Monday, winning $10,000 courtesy of High Country Automotive Group.

While many were wrapping up their long weekend activities and preparing themselves for a return to work, Tim and Tracy received a lovely Monday afternoon surprise.

In a phone call they never expected to receive, the couple at 5.30pm on Monday, answered the phone to be told they were the winners of High Country Automotive Group's $10,000 give away.

"We are very excited, it was such a shock," Mrs Seears said.

"The phone rang at 5.31pm, I couldn't believe it."

The long weekend bonanza, saw those who purchased a car from High Country over the long weekend, placed in a draw for the prize.

Steve Ganitis is the owner of High Country and says its was a fun weekend for all involved.

"It was a good little campaign run over the three days," Mr Ganitis said.

"We tried something different and it turned out a success. "

Jason Kilpatrick, sales manager at High Country, joined Mr Ganitis to present the Sears with their cheque.

With so many different ways to spend the money, Tim Seears already knows where the cash is headed.

"We'll put it towards the car we purchased, it is now a lot cheaper," Mr Seears said.

Mr Seears is no stranger to winning prizes, a few years back he won a trip to Whistler, Canada.
