Community-wide Holiday Giveaway Changes

Ponca City Now - September 18, 2013 10:23 am

Halloween hasn’t even passed, but the Christmas bells are already ringing at the Chamber of Commerce.

Ponca City has made a change to the Community-wide Holiday Giveaway.

For every $10 you spend at participating stores you will receive a ticket for a chance to win cash.

In previous years stores have had to keep the other ticket, but now they are switching to a lottery style process.

“A lot of them were keeping them in garage bags and bringing them in," said Rich Cantillion, Chamber of Commerce president. "Than we were having to haul them down to were we kept the wheel, take a long time to put them in the wheel, it’s going to eliminate every bit of that.”

Cantillion said even though Ponca City is the leader in retail promotion they took the lottery style approach from Broken Arrow.

The holiday giveaway begins Nov. 2 and runs through Dec. 19 when the winners will be annouced on KPNC and KLOR.
