Price Chopper launched Bags 2 Riches this month, and it will continue through mid-March. Millions in prizes will be given away to shoppers.
In addition to prizes for shoppers, the company has set aside $25,000 to be shared among five charities, with the actual amounts determined by “votes” from game participants.
Customers receive a game ticket for every $25 spent at Price Chopper or Market Bistro. One in three tickets will reveal a food prize or discount, while other tickets will be part of a collect-and-win game. Finally, some tickets will reveal PINs (Personal Identification Numbers), which can be used to enter to win at the game’s web site.
Participants who enter their PINs will have the opportunity to cast votes for one of five charity organizations, who will share $25,000, based on the percentage of votes received. The voting progress and current percentages can be viewed in real time at the web page.
This donation opportunity will help make a difference in making wishes a reality for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Michael Dominick of Make-A-Wish Connecticut said, “We encourage players to select Make-A- Wish to support through this game. With your help, we can make wishes come true, and spread the power of a wish together.”
