The new-look 2012 Finley Christmas Shopping Bonanza’s first weekly draw saw one lucky shopper take home $500 in shopping vouchers.December 6, 2012 4:18am
The first draw, which was held at Murray Hut Clothing at 11am on Saturday morning, saw Finley’s Sarah Richardson automatically win $250 worth of vouchers by shopping at Finley IGA.
But because Sarah was at the draw with a receipt for spending $20 or more that morning at a participating business, her prize was doubled to a $500 voucher.
Finley Christmas Shopping Bonanza rewards people for shopping locally in the lead up to Christmas.
A total prize pool of $3500 in shopping vouchers is up for grabs from participating businesses, with a draw each Saturday in December right up until Christmas.
All you need to do is spend $20 or more at a participating business to receive an entry ticket in the draw. All entries will remain in the running for the major prize draw.
The grand prize draw will be held at Finley Christmas Market Day on Saturday, December 22.
The remaining weekly prize draws will be held at 11am at Murray Hut Clothing on December 8 and 15.
The Finley Christmas Shopping Bonanza is a Finley Chamber of Commerce promotion supported by the Southern Riverina News.
Shoppers can enter their tickets at any of the participating businesses. Full terms and conditions of entry will be attached to entry boxes.
