To support local restaurants, we’re doing a giveaway of $500 in local restaurant gift certificates!
Post a photo of your takeout or delivery from any restaurant in the Newport area using the hashtag #newporttakeout on Facebook and be automatically entered in to win one of many gift cards we have! Be sure to join Newport Area Takeout Facebook group too! Take a picture of food from Chamber member restaurants and you will get a double entry for that post.
To be entered in the giveaway, the entrant must post on Facebook with:
A photo of their takeout food
The name of the Newport area restaurant
We will select random winners for this giveaway. Each photo counts as one "entry". All entrants who take a photo of takeout or delivery from a Chamber Member restaurant will be entered twice on the list.
We will choose 20 winners, 10 on April 1 and 10 on April 8, for a $25 gift card from various restaurants in the Newport area. "Newport area” includes any restaurants in or immediately surrounding the Newport city limits. The promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by or associated with Facebook.
Rather than holding this event in person, the Chamber has elected to try a new method of fundraising and will implement an online auction. We truly appreciate all the wonderful donations we've received to date and will continue to procure items for this online fundraiser. Your ongoing support is invaluable to us, especially during this tumultuous time. Details about the online auction will be available soon.
