 The grand prize winner was Brittannie Smith of East Ridge, and she won the paddle board ($899 retail), group excursion and Double-Cola products. “I was just excited to have gotten it,” said Ms. Smith.  “I didn’t think I was going to win the contest, but I put in for it, and I won it.” 

First prize winner Doris Truss of Chattanooga won a $100 Bi Lo gift card, eight 12 packs of Double-Cola and Double-Cola merchandise ($75 retail). “I was surprised and happy because I love Double-Cola,” said Ms. Truss.  “It made my Thanksgiving happier.”
