With the threat of inclement weather on Saturday, the Main Street Altus promotion, Candy Cane Cash “Sweet”stakes, has been moved to inside the Altus City Auditorium. The new location is just a block east of the downtown square on Commerce.
Participating merchants have been giving out tickets over the past few weeks, which could be worth $12,500.
Even with a winning number, you must be present to win and claim a prize. The cash prizes will be given away beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday. Officials will be on hand to verify winning ticket. Official ruling will be final. There will be a 6 minute time limit to claim prizes.
You must also be 18 years or older to win. Picture I.D., social security number and place of employment (if applicable) will be required to claim prize.
Cash prizes of $1,000 and $10,000 will be awarded in the form of a cashier’s check. All prizes are non-transferable. Winner is responsible for all applicable taxes.
At 10 a.m. the first drawing for $1,000 will be drawn. At 10:10 a.m. and thereafter every 10 minutes a ticket will be drawn for a $100 ticket winner with the last $100 ticket being drawn at 10:50 a.m. If you are a winner of the $1,000 or the $100 drawings your winning ticket will be placed back into the hopper for chance to win the $10,000. If no winner comes forward during the $1,000 or $100 drawings prior to the $10,000 drawing, each amount will be tacked on the next drawing until awarded.
At 11 a.m. the grand prize ticket will be drawn for $10,000. Again, the ticket winner will have 6 minutes to report to the stage. If no winner comes forward another ticket will be drawn.
