A merry Christmas for an El Dorado resident
El Dorado - Walnut Valley Packing, Charley’s Appliance, WheatLand Construction and Sutherlands announce a free-to-enter cooperative effort to give away a grand prize valued at $7,500.
The winner will receive a custom-built deck from Sutherlands, installed by WheatLand Construction, a Traeger grill from Charley’s Appliance, and a year’s supply of meat from Walnut Valley Packing.
“In September my brother Ryan and I came up with an idea to do a cross-promotion with Walnut Valley Packing,” said Jonathan Brickley, co-owner of WheatLand Construction. “They could give away some meat, and WheatLand would build a deck to grill it on.”
Matt Carselowey of Walnut Valley Packing was happy to pitch in for the giveaway, but suggested they get more businesses involved.
“I thought it would be even more fun to incorporate other local business owners,” said Carselowey.
“We called Samuel McVay (co-owner of Charley’s Appliance) to see if he’d want to donate the grill,” said Brickley, “He came over in 5 minutes, was really excited about the idea, and suggested that we invite Sutherlands to donate the wood for the deck.”
Sutherlands, another local, family-owned business, was happy to do so.
“I’m excited about how much traffic a big giveaway like this will mean for our social media presence,” said Carselowey, “but even more excited by the cooperation. It’s very refreshing to see businesses giving back and not just trying to take.”
This event isn’t the first time some of these companies have worked together.
A chest freezer from Charleys was filled with meat from Walnut Valley and given away earlier this year. That raffle was a commercial and community success, getting over 60,000 views on Facebook and promoting values like shopping small and shopping local.
These four companies are hoping that this giveaway at least doubles those results, and are excited to give one El Dorado area resident a very merry Christmas.
