Free gas AND a chance to grab up some free cash along the way will be the subject of a raffle being sponsored by the Albany – Clinton County Chamber of Commerce that will center around a Saturday, October 20 giveaway during the upcoming Foothills Festival.

Albany – Clinton County Chamber of Commerce President J.W. Collins released information recently that gives the details of the upcoming raffle, and noted that tickets would be available from member businesses, as well as from individual chamber members.

The Free Gas/Free Cash raffle will feature chances being sold for $5 each, with five chances at the giveaway being sold for $20.

The Saturday drawing for free gasoline cards will include a chance at one of five separate gas cards being given away ranging in value from $100 to $350.

Collins noted that a Marathon Card from Super City Mart would be awarded to a lucky winner and would be in the amount of $350, with a $250 gas card from Shell Quick Mart also being awarded to a winner while three separate cards worth $100 each from BP Distributor George Wilson would also be included in the giveaway.

Winners do not have to be present to win the gasoline cards, Collins pointed out, adding that raffle tickets would also be available during the Foothills Festival at the Albany – Clinton County Chamber of Commerce booth that would be located on the courthouse square.

In addition, Collins noted that on Saturday, October 20, a ticket would be drawn out on the hour, every hour, giving a winner a chance to spend 30 seconds inside the “cash grab” booth that will be located at the Chamber booth.

Winners of the cash grab chances will have to be at the Chamber booth when the drawing is held each hour in order to take their turn inside the booth.

Cash grab winning tickets will be placed back inside the gas giveaway tickets, remaining eligible for the grand prize drawings that are to be held Saturday evening.

The Albany – Clinton County Chamber of Commerce Free Gas/Free Cash giveaway is directly tied into the Chamber’s “Shop At Home” program and is also being conducted in a manner to show the organization’s support of the annual Foothills Festival.

Additional information may be obtained, or raffle tickets may be purchased by contacting any participating Albany – Clinton County Chamber of Commerce member.
