Summer Vacation Surprise for Local Teacher -- $20k Home Theater Prize from Bassett

Summer vacation just got sweeter for lucky seventh grade teacher, Kathy Corder, of Marietta. Ms. Corder is the proud new owner of a $20,000 Bassett Ultimate Home Theatre sweepstakes prize package that includes home theater seating by John Elway Home. Sony large screen TV, customized entertainment center and customized reclining seating – all inspired by the lifestyle of Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway. Michael Satterfield, vice president of marketing made the announcement.

"It doesn't get any better than enjoying an evening with friends in a room full of furniture by John Elway, one of football's greatest quarterbacks," said Satterfield. "Our Bassett store is thrilled for Kathy."

Twenty- year teacher Ms. Corder is a mother of three, grandmother of two, and avid sports fan. "I was squealing with delight when I was informed that I won the Elway Home by Bassett sweepstakes," said Ms. Corder. "John Elway is one of my favorites. When I wasn't watching the local football teams, I watched John Elway and the Broncos."

Now that she owns the new Elway Home by Bassett furniture, Ms. Corder says that she and members of her book club, many of whom are also teachers, plan to gather at her home to discuss books, play bridge, and watch movies. "We like romantic comedies best," said Ms. Corder.

Bassett Furniture Direct stores across the country invited shoppers to stop by stores to enter or online at to win the sweeps from December 26, 2005, through February 28, 2006.
