Countdown to a winner

Chamber begins selling reverse drawing tickets


The Saratoga/Platte Valley Chamber of Commerce has started selling tickets for the annual Reverse Drawing. Tickets are $10 each and only 300 are sold. Unlike the usual raffle procedure, the very last ticket drawn is the grand prize winner in this drawing. “The winner receives a $1,000 chamber gift certificate which can be redeemed at chamber member businesses only,” said chamber director Stacy Crimmins. “You could go out to dinner, buy toys for the kids, and have your car serviced,” she added.

Every 50th ticket drawn will also win a $50 certificate while the owner of the 299th ticket drawn will win a $100 certificate. The first 150 names will be drawn Wednesday, Dec. 7 at the chamber office. The second of the progressive drawings will be held on Dec. 8, when another 100 names are drawn. The last 50 names will be drawn on Friday, Dec. 9, and the lucky winner will be announced during the “Festival of Trees Gala” which begins at 6 pm that evening.

The chamber shopping spree gift certificates will expire on Dec. 31 of this year, so the winners have plenty of time to check out the local possibilities for their seasonal shopping. “In this economy, it is even more important to shop locally and support our neighbors. Our sales tax dollars stay in Carbon County where they are needed. Plus, it is fun to discover such a wide array of inventory available in our retail stores. Our small business community is able to be flexible with their supply in order to withstand the twists and turns of demand,” says Crimmins.

The Reverse Drawing board will be on display at the chamber office until December 9 if you wish to track your tickets. Tickets can be purchased at the chamber office (210 W. Elm Street) or by calling the chamber office at 326-8855. Tickets are also available from Chamber Board members and The Flower Pot in downtown Saratoga.
