The Wiarton BIA Gold Rush is well underway! On Thursday September 24, local real estate agent Jodie Ward of Chestnut Park Real Estate drew the name of Sam Brown of Wiarton, he is the winner of $200 in gift certificates to downtown Wiarton. Mr. Brown has been busy with his drywall business so his wife came in to pick up his prize package.

Congratulations also to the many winners of the random “Gold Nugget” draws. The Gold Rush program will be running until December, simply pick up a ballot at any participating business and have your ballot marked when you shop at three different businesses and then drop it off in a Golden Ballot Box (one located by TD Bank, the other by Town Hall). 

The bi-weekly draws for $200 in gift certificates will be taking place October 8 and 22, November 5 and 19, and December 3 and 17. There will be a Grand Prize draw for $1,000 in gift certificates held in December! The next $200 draw date is Thursday October 8th at Nicol Insurance in downtown Wiarton.

Congratulations to Tony Keeshig, winner of the October 8, Wiarton BIA Gold Rush draw! Tony won $200 in downtown Wiarton business gift certificates as well as a backpack from Nicol Insurance! Next draw date is Thursday October 22 at Royal LePage.
