Would-be losers win big reverse drawing


The drawing gives those who would usually finish last a chance to come in first this Christmas. And the would-be losers win big in this drawing.

Monday kicks off the first drawing for the Saratoga-Platte Valley Chamber of Commerce Reverse Drawing.

Some of the names drawn Monday have a chance to win $50 prizes. But drawings will also take place Dec. 4 and 6. Each progressing day, and with each draw, each person entered has the chance to win more money.

The grand prize, however, is reserved for the 300th name drawn, which is a Chamber certificate good for $1,000 at any chamber member business in the Valley.

Shirley Hillyard won the grand prize last year. In 2011, the $1,000 grand prize was reserved for Pam Waldner.

Waldner said she was shocked to have won in the reverse drawing.

“When they came and told me I won, I was like “What did I win?,” Waldner said.

The 50th,100th, 100th, 150th, 200th and 250th names drawn will receive $50 Chamber certificate prizes. The 299th name drawn will win a $100 Valley shopping prize. The grand-prize winner will be announced at the Festival of Trees Gala Dec. 6.

To keep track of who is left in the drawing, keep an eye on the Reverse Drawing board in the Chamber of Commerce office at the Platte Valley Community Center.
