 Paul Bunyan Broadcasting’s Great Gift Card Giveaway

Excitement is in the air as Paul Bunyan Broadcasting presents the Great Gift Card Giveaway, featuring a grand prize of a whopping $1000 in gift cards! But that’s not all – there are numerous additional prize packages up for grabs, with thrilling drawings scheduled for early January.

How to Participate

To be part of this fantastic giveaway, individuals can acquire tickets from sponsoring businesses listed on the official chamber website. It’s as simple as making a minimum purchase of $10 or more, and for those eager to increase their chances, there’s a maximum limit of 40 tickets per transaction. Sponsoring businesses are ready to get you in on the action, with the only restriction being a cap of 40 tickets per transaction, even if your total purchase exceeds $400.

Who Can Participate?

Participants must be 18 years of age or older to receive a ticket, and the best part is, you don’t have to be present at the drawing to win! The winning ticket numbers will be posted in early January at all participating businesses and on the official Leech Lake Area Chamber of Commerce website. Chamber members can also expect an email with the list of winning numbers, and physical copies will be available for pick up.

Eligibility for Business Owners and Employees

Sponsoring business owners and their hardworking employees are eligible to win, with a small twist – the drawn ticket must not be part of a sequence issued to their respective business or place of employment. It adds an extra layer of excitement as even those behind the counter have a chance to be on the receiving end of this giveaway. Employees can also receive credit for purchases at their store, provided they present a signed receipt from their store manager at the Chamber to obtain their contest tickets.

No Purchase Necessary

For those who wish to try their luck without making a purchase, sending a self-addressed stamped envelope to the Leech Lake Area Chamber of Commerce at the provided address is the way to go. It’s a fantastic opportunity for everyone in the community to join in on the excitement.

Gear up for a thrilling start to the new year with the Great Gift Card Giveaway! Spread the word, visit your local sponsoring businesses, and be part of the excitement. May the odds be ever in your favor! 

Please note that all decisions made by the Leech Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and Paul Bunyan Broadcasting are considered final. For any questions or inquiries, individuals may contact the Leech Lake Area Chamber of Commerce at 218-547-1313.
