Holiday Shopping Passport Early Bird Winner #1

Congratulations to Pat McCardle of Peterborough on winning the first Holiday Shopping Passport early bird draw of the season.

Pat’s completed Holiday Shopping Passport was drawn Dec. 5 at Mercado La Hacienda. Pat picked up her prize of $500 in downtown money at Charlotte’s Web at 180 Charlotte St.

Here’s how it works: every time you spend $10 at a participating business, a box on your passport will be stamped. When your passport is filled (20 stamps), complete the form and drop it off at a ballot box at one of the participating businesses. Each completed passport is a ballot for a draw to win downtown money. There are more than 100 participating businesses downtown.

There are still two more $500 early bird draws as well as the $1,500 grand prize:
