FIRST PASSPORT WINNER DRAWN
Peterborough’s Pat McCardle is the first Holiday Shopping Passport winner, Peterborough DBIA officials announced Thursday. She picked up her $500 prize in downtown money for winning the early bird draw at Charlotte’s Web after her passport was drawn Wednesday at Mercado La Hacienda, officials stated.
A box on the passport can be stamped any time bearers spend $10 or more at more than 100 participating businesses. When the passport is full and its form is filled out (20 stamps), it can be dropped off at a ballot box at any of the same businesses.
The passports feature three early bird prizes - two more will be drawn Dec. 2 and 19 with the grand prize of $1,500 in downtown money to be drawn Jan. 9. The second early bird draw takes place at Lift Lock Escape, the third at Cute as a Button and the grand prize will be drawn at Hello Baby! Each takes place at 2 p.m.
