Double Cola Awards Local Residents For Winning Great Outdoor Sweepstakes

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

The Double Cola Company has awarded the grand prize and first prize winners of The Great Outdoor Sweepstakes, a promotion with L2 Boards held at participating Bi Lo stores in October.  Double Cola and local board company L2 Boards partnered to bring Chattanooga area residents the chance to win a paddle board and group excursion, as well as Double-Cola products, Double-Cola merchandise and a $100 Bi Lo gift card.  

 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.”   

Throughout the sweepstakes, Chattanooga area residents were exposed to two local brands that aim to make an impact in the Chattanooga community. Double Cola and L2 Boards want to not only increase locals’ enthusiasm for the outdoors, but increase locals’ desire to buy and shop local, officials said.
