The Osage County Herald-Chronicle and 30 local businesses are joining together to sponsor Christmas on Us, an exciting promotion that will award prizes totaling $3,000 to people who shop locally at participating businesses.
The contest features 30 area businesses from Burlingame, Carbondale, Lyndon, Osage City, Overbrook and Scranton, along with The Herald-Chronicle. For each $10 spent at participating businesses, shoppers will receive a ticket. A corresponding ticket will go into a hopper at The Herald-Chronicle office. The tickets could be worth scrip money, if the ticket number is drawn during one of four weekly drawings, or during the grand prize drawing set for 6:30 p.m. Dec. 18 at the Osage City High School Auditorium.
Scrip money can be spent at any business participating in the Christmas on Us promotion. See pages 13 and 16 in this week’s Herald-Chronicle, where sponsoring businesses are featured.
“The contest rewards people for spending their money locally,” said Chris Faimon, co-publisher of The Herald-Chronicle. “Sponsoring businesses also benefit from the contest, since winners can spend the scrip only at participating businesses.”
Each week, several $50 winners will be selected and announced in the Christmas on Us advertising section of the newspaper.
In addition to the 10 weekly winners, two $250 and two $1,000 prizes will be given away at the grand prize drawing. Any unclaimed $50 prizes will awarded at the grand prize drawing.
To participate, start shopping and collecting tickets from the participating businesses. Participants may also claim one free ticket each week by stopping by The Herald-Chronicle office at 527 Market Street, in Osage City.
