Every so often, I decided to have a cheap-cheap, fun-fun contest for my incredible customers and supporters. People tell me I have a heart of gold. Trust me, I resist the praise, but it is good to hear that my fans appreciate my giveaways. Last month the holiday spirit (and the fire-hot record of the St. Louis Blues) moved me to initiate a Top Shelf Promotional Giveaway! With the help of Fox Sports Midwest, I invited all of my fans to stop into a Dirt Cheap location and enter to win a grand prize, consisting of FOUR all-inclusive tickets to January 3rd’s St. Louis Blues Hockey game against the Phoenix Coyotes. That’s not all. The winner (and the three friends invited) would also be driven to and from the game in a swanky limo, courtesy of JED Limousines.
The contest was open for a couple weeks, and the entries poured in from all over St. Louis. We then waited a few days before announcing the winner (hey, it was Christmas, after all). On the 29th of December, we proclaimed the winner to be Beckie S., who entered at the Hazelwood Store. I’m not sure who was more excited, Beckie or I! On the 3rd of January, I picked up her and a few friends on the way to the game. We arrived in time to watch the Fox Sports Midwest Pregame show (and sip on a few tasty beverages).
Before long, the Blues entered the arena to practice some techniques. We had a fantastic time watching our favorite hockey players destroy the Coyotes on the ice. The all-inclusive tickets were quite a luxury, and I enjoyed filling up on great food and drinks. I think Beckie and her friends enjoyed it as well. Thank you to all of my Facebook fans and Twitter followers. It’s always a blast to connect with you on the social networks. Stay tuned for more promotions to come – and as always, Go Blues!
