Carriage House partners with newspaper for Christmas Lights contest
Do you love free stuff — lots of free stuff? Who doesn’t, right?
Do you love Christmas lights? We all do.
Keeping that in mind, the Sulphur Springs News-Telegram announces two new contests for the holiday season — one in which 10 local retailers are giving away free gifts, and another to recognize the best Christmas lights in the city and county.
Christmas Wish List
The News-Telegram has partnered with 10 local retailers for an exciting give-away that will put 10 gifts each in the hands of three lucky shoppers.
For three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the name of a shopper will be drawn from those who enter the Christmas Wish List contest. That person will win all 10 prizes (a total value of $200) donated by the 10 retailers that week.
To enter the contest, watch for the entry form in the News-Telegram on Tuesdays (Dec. 1, Dec. 8 and Dec. 15) between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Winners will be drawn on Dec. 8, Dec. 15 and Dec. 22.
Entry forms must be turned in at the retailers (forms will NOT be accepted at the News-Telegram) each week, beginning Tuesday. Dec. 1. The retailers participating are Big Smith’s restaurant, Circle E Western Wear, Grape Bistro and Wine Bar, Flowerland Florist, Marlene’s Sass and Class, Northeast Texas Farmers Co-op, Sears, Shoe Inn, Sister Babyz and Tangled Salon.
Entry forms must be originals from the News-Telelgram. No photocopies will be accepted.
Each week, one lucky person will win all 10 gifts donated by the retailers — just in time for Christmas!
Christmas Lights Contest
Carriage House Manor is sponsoring the News-Telegram’s Christmas Lights Contest, which will recognize the best lighting in three categories — city residential, county residential and businesses.
