An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until December 25, 2018
The Darlington Downtown Revitalization Association will hold a contest to encourage people to shop in Darlington this holiday season by giving them a chance to win one of three $100 fuel cards.
Between now and Christmas, shop at five different Darlington businesses; mail the DDRA copies of your receipts with an entry form, and then you will be entered into the drawing.
While you are out shopping, take a break to stop into one of Darlington’s restaurants for another receipt to add to your entry, as restaurant purchases during this time period will qualify as part of an entry. Gift cards or gift certificates at local eateries or at other service-based shops like salons or gyms qualify too.
You may make multiple entries to increase your odds of winning, just keep shopping in town. Multiple entries must include different purchases and different purchase dates than previous entries. So, if you make 10 purchases at different Darlington businesses, you could enter twice. Fifteen purchases would let you have three chances to win, and so on.
Receipts, either the originals or copies, must be dated November 22, 2018, to December 25, 2018, to qualify, and each entry must include purchases made at five different businesses. Purchases of tobacco, prescriptions, and fuel do not qualify for entry into the contest, and neither do purchases at fueling stations since the group is trying to encourage folks to stay in town to shop.
Entry forms will be located at area businesses, the Greater Darlington Chamber of Commerce, and City Hall. The form includes your name, phone number, and email address, and needs to be mailed to DDRA, P.O. Box 57, Darlington, SC 29540, by December 31. You must be age 18 and older to enter.
A drawing of all the qualifying entry forms received will be held by January 7. The winners will be contacted by phone and by email. Gift cards will be presented in person at a location to be determined by the DDRA for a publicity photograph.
