Each winning certificate is for $50 worth of merchandise at a participating Chamber of Commerce business. Parsons said each week the Chamber will give away 20 of the $50 certificates. A list of participating merchants will be provided to the winners. Entrants can win only once.

Parsons said she is still looking for local businesses to participate in the program and is asking people to register to win on the chamber’s Web site.

Drawings for winners will be held on Nov. 23, Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14, Parsons said. Winners will be notified by phone and e-mail. Winners should use their certificates by Christmas Eve.

Winner’s will be able to use the certificate only at one participating merchant and change will not be provided for purchases of less than $50.
