Pigs in Paradise

Win $2,500 for your own personal paradise or $400 to pay it forward

Congratulations to our grand prize winner: Bekki Weston

On August 1st, 2019, Peoples Bank released two hundred piggy banks near our branches throughout Washington State in an attempt to pay it forward. Each hidden piggy bank held $30 in cash, $15 for the finder and $15 to be paid forward in whatever way the finder saw fit.

Anyone who shared their story about paying it forward was entered into a drawing to win $2,500 for their own personal paradise. Participants did not have to find a hidden piggy bank to win. Instead, they just had to share their story of paying it forward in-person at any Peoples Bank branch or via social media on the Peoples Bank Facebook and Instagram pages.

Pigs in Parks - Have you seen me?Participants who entered in-person at one of our 23 branch locations were also entered to win a secondary prize of $400, $200 for them and $200 to be paid forward to the charity of their choice.

This year's Pigs in Paradise winner was Bekki Weston. Bekki made a generous donation to the Kiwanis Club PNW District Convention auction. Kiwanis International is a global community of clubs, members and partners dedicated to improving the lives of children one community at a time.

Our secondary winner, Fritz Anderson, paid it forward by purchasing a new pair of shoes for a neighbor who hadn't had a new pair in three years.

Thank you to all of our participants for paying it forward.
