BUCKHANNON -

WBOY hosts contests every week, for prizes ranging from tickets to an amusement park to gift certificates for back to school.

But one prize is making a difference in someone's life.

Pam Chidester won an Audibel wireless hearing aid from Advanced Hearing Solutions a few weeks back.

Chidester gave the prize to her boyfriend, Kenneth Stier, who said he is very grateful.

"Its actually really nice...wouldn't be able to hear the rest of my life if she hadn't won, so it's really nice," said Stier, who is from Lumberport.

Chidester said she wanted to win the prize for Stier, since he needs the hearing aids.

"I was thinking of Kenny when I entered, he runs heavy equipment at work, and seems to have trouble hearing at home. It's something we probably wouldn't be able to afford otherwise," explained Chidester, who is also from Lumberport.

The prize was valued at just less than $10,000.

It includes one set of Audibel wireless hearing aids, a Surflink mobile device, and a Surflink media device.

The hearing aids will be able to connect with Stier's television and cell phone so he can hear them directly.

The aids will also be used as a Bluetooth device, for safe driving.
