GreenevilleMarketplace.com has announced winners in their “text to win” contest, held in conjunction with the website’s “Christmas in July” sponsorship at the Greeneville Astros ballpark on July 17-18.
The winners of three grand prize packages were Nannie Johnson, David Painter and Dakota Dean, all of Greeneville.
Each winner received four tickets to see Disney Live Junior at Freedom Hall in Johnson City on Aug. 4, four Blizzard ice cream treats from Dairy Queen of Greeneville and eight passes to see home games of the Greeneville Astros.
Their names were drawn after they used their mobile phones to text a special key code to Marketplace.
“Despite rain, Christmas in July was a success, and everybody seemed to have a good time,” said Brian Cutshall, director of online operations of The Greeneville Sun.
For the promotion, the Astros organization decorated Pioneer Park for “Christmas in July,” played Christmas music and had other activities.
An online service of The Greeneville Sun, GreenevilleMarketplace.com features local business information on more than 2,000 local businesses, including addresses, phone numbers, photos and other details.
More than a million people visit GreenevilleMarketplace.com and GreenevilleSun.com each month, Cutshall said.
