The Lacombe and District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the successful wrap up of the 7th Passport to Christmas program.
Passport to Christmas is a local shopping program that runs 6 weeks leading up to the Christmas holidays.
For each $10 spent at one of the 77 participating businesses, the customers collected stamps for their Passport. Each business had a drop box where completed passports were submitted. The prize for the lucky winners are “Lacombe Bucks”, which can be spent at the participating businesses – 6 of which are located in Bentley.
This year the program ran November 13th through December 24th. The Grand Prize draw took place LIVE on Sunny 94 on December 31st, 2018. The 1st place prize is $1500 in Lacombe Bucks, 2nd place is $750 in Lacombe Bucks and 3rd place is $500 in Lacombe Bucks.
The prize for partially completed passport is $250 Lacombe Bucks.
This program continues to grow each year and we are so excited to track and be able to share the impact that it has on our local economy. This year, there were a record breaking 77 participating businesses; 12,207 passports returned and $3,662,100 tracked.
This is up ($733,500) from last year, when the program tracked $2,928,600 spent in a 6-week period between the 74 participating businesses.
