Win Santa Cash for shopping locally this Christmas


Claremore Progress

CLAREMORE —  

The Claremore Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Santa Cash promotion is underway.  
The Santa Cash shop local event runs through noon on Dec. 21. 
Two cash prizes will be awarded to shoppers on Dec. 22 at 11 a.m. at the Will Rogers Downs Grandstands: the Grand Prize of $10,000 cash and a second prize of $2,500.  
The need-not-be-present to win $1,500 cash prize via the Internet will have the first ticket posted on Sunday,  Dec. 23 on the Chamber web site and in the Daily Progress on Wednesday, Dec. 25. If the ticket is not presented at the Chamber office for that particular week by Wednesday, Jan. 2 at the noon deadline, a new number will be posted. The final weekly ticket posting if no winning ticket has been presented will be on Jan. 23 with a deadline of Jan. 30 at noon to claim the prize.  
“So even if you are out of town or unable to attend the ‘live’ drawing, you still have the opportunity to win $1,500,” said Julie Adams-Simmons, Santa Cash chairman. “The Santa Cash promotion is two-fold: it rewards shoppers and is a boost to local retail and service participants during the holiday season.”  
Sponsors include: Santa Claus Sponsor and host facility, Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs (not a ticket outlet); Mrs. Claus Sponsor, Suburban Chevrolet; Candy Cane Ticket sponsor, Tulsa Federal Credit Union; Reindeer sponsors,  RCB Bank, BancFirst, Claremore Daily Progress, Grand Bank, TTCU The Credit Union, Wal-Mart (not a ticket outlet) and the Claremore Chamber.
