The winner of the “Pittsburgh's Ugliest Bathroom” contest visited WPXI-TV on Thursday.
Susan Behr and 6-year-old daughter Darrien of Hampton Township were excited to receive the first-place prize, a $5,000 bathroom makeover from Bath Fitter and Riverset Credit Union.
“It really means a lot to win this contest. I am a single mom raising four kids in a two-bedroom house with one functioning bathroom. I have 11-year-old twin boys, sharing one bathroom is difficult, the makeover will allow us to have a second bathroom and make things a lot easier,” said Behr.
Bath Fitter will be doing the bathroom makeover and owner, Frank Witkowski is pleased to be presenting the opportunity to such a deserving family.
“It’s good to see that someone who can really use what we are going to do is the winner. We are going to go in and hopefully fulfill their dreams for them. We are excited to work with Sue, picking out the various colors and products that will be in the new bathroom, ” said Witkowski.
Patrick Flynn, community relations manager of Riverset Credit Union, presented Behr with a $250 gift card as part of the first-place prize.
“It is great to be a part of a contest like this. At Riverset, we care a lot about community and helping people in need. There were a lot of great submissions, and it was nice to see how hard this family and its friends worked to receive the votes needed to win this competition,” said Flynn.
