Forbes Foundation selects Hawaii family for interior home makeover

Advertiser Staff

Puanani and Todd Wataoka have been selected for an interior home makeover by the Forbes Foundation.

The Wataokas will be contacted first by phone and later by certified mail. The winning ticket number also will be posted on Facebook and Twitter. The winner must present their ticket stub or computerized ticket printout.

The Forbes Foundation was not able to raise the $750,000 needed to give away a new home and instead offered an interior home makeover. Suzan Forbes, president of The Forbes Foundation, said that everyone should keep their tickets even if they have not been selected.

"This is a fundraiser and we are continuing until we reach our goal and give away a new home," she said in a prepared statement. "We are going to do it again. Every entry is good for one year."
