r Nine-year-old Braden Behrend of Santaquin was one of three winners of a recent Facebook contest hosted by Zions Bank and Real Salt Lake. Brehend received free RSL game tickets for his family and a $400 shopping spree at the new RSL store in downtown Salt Lake City.
When at the store, Behrend was only given 30 seconds to storm through all the racks and shelves and collected as much merchandise as he could. “I grabbed a jersey, I grabbed two warm-up jackets, I got a soccer ball and I grabbed a hat … there were a lot of things,” he said.
Though Behrend walked away with $400 worth of RSL merchandise, he was mostly excited to share the winnings with his family. “When I found out I won, I was excited because I got six tickets to the game … me and all of my family are going. It’s going to be my first game,” he said.
When at the game July 16, Behrend and the other winners were escorted onto to RSL’s soccer field and a special video recording of each of their successful shopping sprees was presented on the stadium’s Jumbotron.
