Fernie Chrysler wins Chamber of Commerce Summer Draw

Fernie Chrysler was awarded the Chamber of Commerce's grand prize for their Summer Draw.

Shawn Potyok was greeted with a handful of balloons on September 26 as the Fernie Chamber of Commerce awarded the general manager and Fernie Chrysler with their summer draw grand prize.

The grand prize includes free radio advertising with The Drive 99.1 and B-104, advertising online at the Fernie Chamber of Commerce website and in publications with The Fernie Fix and The Free Press.

Movie passes, a tour of the Fernie Brewery and tickets to the Fernie Chamber Community and Business Excellence Awards were also included in the grand prize package, which totaled almost $2,500.

New members of the Chamber of Commerce and pre-registered members who referred a new business to the Chamber were eligible for the draw, which ran from April until September.

“I really want people to know that the Chamber of Commerce is there to help established businesses or, if new businesses need assistance, we can provide services for them too,” said Corien Sieders, executive director for the Chamber of Commerce.

Next year, Sieders said, the Chamber of Commerce hopes to do a yearly draw spanning the whole calendar year so that more people can enter.
