The Golden Chamber of Commerce has created a new incentive, especially geared towards Mines’ students, to keep local businesses in town. Students can now receive a “Golden Ticket” after taking the Coors Brewery tour.
Take the ticket around downtown Golden for a chance to win cash, usually between five and ten dollars, or a discount off purchases. Each store will scratch off a portion of the ticket when students come into their shop or restaurant. If that’s not incentive enough, there are also $500 grand prizes.
Mines juniors, Dayne Luekenga and Brittany Bittner are the first lucky winners to find the $500 prize. The couple took their ticket to Anthony’s Pizza after attending the tour and were delighted to see the $500 dollars scratched off their ticket.
The Golden Tickets are a great way to stimulate local businesses and provide students with discounts and possible cash prizes. There is no reason not to take advantage of this win-win situation, so stop by the Coors tour and grab your golden ticket!
