Chamber’s ‘sweet deal’

Christmas Candy Guess-To-Win contest offers a first prize of two tickets to anywhere in the world WestJet flies

Four lucky entrants are going to enjoy the sweet taste of winning thanks to a fundraiser benefiting the non-profit Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber’s Christmas Candy Guess-To-Win contest offers a first prize of two tickets to anywhere in the world WestJet flies. The winner simply needs to guess the number of candies in a container, and come closest to the actual total.

Tickets cost just $20 and must be purchased by Dec. 16.

Three other prizes are also to be awarded, for trips and a holiday feast. And with a maximum of 1,000 tickets to be sold, the odds of winning could be as low as one in 250.

Second prize is a two-night vacation getaway with Oak Bay Marine Group. The package, for two people, includes a stay in a resort suite and a four-hour adventure cruise.

Third prize is a two-night stay for two at the Yellow Point Lodge penthouse suite, including meals, tea times, and full use of all recreational facilities.

The fourth place winner gets a $200 holiday feast gift certificate from 49th Parallel Grocery, to purchase holiday celebration menu items.

Contest tickets are available throughout town, including the chamber office at 33 Roberts Street, 49th Parallel Grocery, Nanaimo Airport, Ladysmith & District Credit Union,  Ladysmith Home Hardware Building Centre and Ladysmith Waterfront Art Gallery.

Winners will be announced at the chamber’s annual Christmas Social, at Cottonwood Golf Course on Dec. 16.

Proceeds from the contest will help fund chamber activities in Ladysmith.
