SOUTH GLENGARRY, Ontario – The Township of South Glengarry is encouraging residents of the region to discover and enjoy restaurants across the municipality as a part of the March Meal Ticket contest.
“It’s meant to get people out and about and seeing different (community opportunities),” said Shauna Baggs, Economic Development and Tourism Coordinator in South Glengarry.
With a minimum purchase of $15 at at least three of 10 participating restaurants, participants can enter into a draw to win a $300 gift card, which can be used towards any Meal Ticket restaurant of choice. Each location must stamp the individual’s meal ticket prior to entering in the final draw, which will close on March 31.
Participating restaurants include Mama Sue’s Diner, Lancaster Restaurant and Pizzeria, Bourdeau Restaurant, The South Glengarry Restaurant, Ye Old Bridge Café, Jack’s Pub, The Grant Hotel, The Blue Anchor, Sheep’s Head Bistro and Papa’s Perfect Pizza.
“It really covers everything and there’s an assortment of different kinds of foods with a chance to win,” said Baggs.
Baggs said she has already received positive feedback. The contest was largely inspired by the gingerbread municipality map that appeared in the 2018 Holiday Tymes, in which shoppers were eligible to win a $500 shopping spree.
“Even if we don’t get a ton of ballots…just to get the idea of this, and that this is going on (out in the community)…is exciting,” said Baggs. “I’d really like to stress the community involvement and everyone working as a team…supporting each other and promoting each other and I think that’s going to go a long way in the future.”
Baggs is reminding participants that they must be 18-years-old to participate, and contact information is required
Meal tickets can be found on the Township’s website www.southglengarry.com or in the Cornwall Seaway News Feb. 27, March 6, March 13 and March 20 edition.
