ST. MARYS — The Evening Leader and the Wapakoneta Daily News will again have a $10,000 cash giveaway as a promotion for participating sponsors. The event, The $10,000 Dash for Cash, is being held after the success of previous giveaways.
This is the sixth time the newspapers have held a big-prize giveaway. Previously cars and gas cards have been given away.
Patrons can visit any of the 72 participating sponsors in The Evening Leader and Wapakoneta Daily News coverage area to enter.
“This is our way of rewarding our loyal readers and subscribers,” The Evening Leader Publisher Gayle Masonbrink said. “It’s a lot of fun and everyone seems to enjoy the contest so we thought we’d do it again.”
Winners at each of the participating businesses will each offer a door prize for one lucky winner. Each of those 72 winners are then eligible for the grand prize drawing of $10,000 on Sept. 18 at a location to be determined at a later day.
No purchase is necessary to enter. Participants must be 18 to enter and participants can enter one time per person, per business, per day.
The winner will be drawn by a reverse drawing, with the last name drawn being the $10,000 winner. The winner will be given a 1099 form and will be responsible for all taxes related to the prize money. The deadline to enter is Sept. 12, and entries are available every Tuesday in each newspaper starting today.
