STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 26, 2012 -- Stamford resident Magda Bayoneta, a registered nurse in Stamford Hospital’s emergency department, was this year’s First County Bank Facebook Sweepstakes winner. Bayoneta won an Apple iPad 3 for liking First County Bank on its Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/firstcountybank.
“I only go to Facebook to post things. I’m not very techie,” explained Bayoneta. “Although, now that I own an iPad that might change. In fact, I plan on using the iPad for online banking, emailing, shopping and posting to Facebook, as well as accessing other social media Websites.”
Bayoneta has been a First County Bank customer for 10 years, ever since arriving here from the Philippines. “Because of its proximity to work, I opened my first bank account at the (160) Atlantic Street branch and have been banking with First County ever since.”
Pictured with Bayoneta is First County Bank Chairman and CEO Rey Giallongo who presented the iPad at the bank’s administrative offices, located at 117 Prospect St. in Stamford.
The First County Bank Facebook Sweepstakes began on Sept. 17, 2012 and ended on Oct. 31, 2012. It was promoted on the company's Website, www.firstcountybank.com, on in-branch flyers, customer communications and through social media.
