19 Dec Holiday Shopping Giveaway hits record receipts
A record number of receipts were collected during the 2016 Holiday Shopping Giveaway, making it an overwhelming success this year. The contest started the day after Thanksgiving until December 16 . During that period, more than $170,000 in receipts was turned into the Chamber office, doubling the amount turned in last season. Those shoppers turning in receipts from participating businesses became eligible to win the three prize drawings that were held on Fridays during the contest.
Congratulations goes out to the three 2016 prize winners: $100 in Portage Green Gift Certificates to the winner of the December 2 drawing, Laurie Marish of Wisconsin Dells; $100 in Portage Green to the winner of the December 9 drawing, Dennis Daniels of Montello; and the winner of the $500 in Portage Green Grand Prize drawing held on December 16, Cherie Meyer from the Mauston area.
The Portage Area Chamber of Commerce thanks all the businesses and individuals who participated in the 2016 Holiday Shopping Giveaway for helping to make the contest a huge success.
