Winners need not be present to win.
The weekly promotion, which highlights the holiday shopping season in Windom, features drawings on each of the next three Monday nights. Like this Monday, drawings will be held for $100 and $200 each of the next two Mondays.
However, any unclaimed prizes from the first three weekly drawings will be added to a $100 Jackpot Drawing on the final Monday of the promotion, Dec. 10.
How can you secure a chance to win? By shopping Windom businesses.
Anyone shopping at Windom businesses will receive a ticket for the drawing. Those receiving a ticket should hold on to all tickets during the promotion. Not only do you have a chance to win the weekly drawings, but all non-winning tickets are eligible for the final jackpot drawing on Dec. 10.
Participating businesses will be handing out new green tickets this week which will be used in the next weekly drawing at 5 p.m., on Monday. That drawing as well as the Dec. 3 drawing, again, will each be for $200 and $100 in Windom Chamber Bucks.
Area residents are encouraged to "Shop Windom" to get your tickets and be entered in the weekly drawings.
Winning numbers are posted in participating businesses.
