Published on Sep 23, 2015

With the Dream Big Lottery, Aegis Living CEO Dwayne Clark has found a new way to reward employee loyalty. On September 15, 2015, Clark (pictured left) gave away $50,000 to several long-term employees, one in particular. 45-year-old Aegis of Aptos (California) care manager Irene won the Grand Prize and a check for $35,000. In this video you’ll see her reaction. Company President Judy Meleliat (right) served as emcee. Aegis Living operates assisted living communities in the Western United States.
