Two Neligh residents recently cashed in on the Neligh Chamber of Comerce's Business Bingo event.
This program rewards people for using local service and retail businesses. Every receipt for $20 or more spent at a Chamber business is worth a spot on a bingo card.
Julie Tschirren won in the first week and Sara Allen won the second week. They each received $100 in Neligh Big Bucks and will be entered into a drawing for $1000 in Neligh Big Bucks.
Assistant Economic Development Director Lauren Sheridan-Simonsen said bingo cards are available at various businesses throughout town, as well as the Chamber office along Highway 275 near the entrance to Riverside Park.
Receipts should be taken to the Chamber office, where they will be validated. Participants will then draw for their space. She said $100 will be given away every week with a $1,000 grand prize drawing on Dec. 23.
She said everything from city water bills and chiropractor receipts to haircuts and prescriptions are eligible as long as there is a receipt for at least $20 and the businesses is a Chamber member.
The event will continue until December 23.
