November 2015: The Claremore Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Santa Cash promotion is just around the corner. The Santa Cash shop local event begins at noon on Friday, November 6 and will run through noon on December 18. Two cash prizes will be awarded to shoppers on December 19 at 11 a.m. at the Will Rogers Downs Grandstands: the Grand Prize of $10,000 cash and a 2nd prize of $2,500. The need not be present to win $1,000 cash prize via the Internet will have the first ticket posted on Sunday, December 20 on the Chamber website and in the Claremore Daily Progress. If the Santa Cash ticket is not presented at the Chamber office for that particular week by Tuesday, December 29, 2015 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 January 17, with a deadline of January 26 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 $1,000.
“The Santa Cash promotion is two-fold; it rewards shoppers and is a boost to local retail and service participants during the holiday season,” reports Julie Simmons, committee chair. Per Chamber President Dell Davis, “This shop local promotion is a tremendous opportunity to keep holiday sales in our community. Every dollar spent in our community can re-circulate up to seven times, not to mention the clear benefits of the sales tax dollars working in and for Claremore.”
