The promotion is offering up a grand prize of $200,000. In the event she wins, Sonya has pledged her winnings to the school’s fundraising.
 
Sonya commented, “I started the Anchor Milk Family because I want to help our school with funds. If we were lucky enough to win, it would take away the constant fundraising worries and allow the children to reap the rewards within their curriculum learning and outdoor play.  All children drink milk at School and it is a wonderful promotion to get in behind. “
