Ten Grand in the Sand – A Big Hit

First, we have to thank all the great Rochester area folks for coming in for our contest event, and enjoying the lovely weather with us!  We had a great time thanks to you, and we hope you did, too.    We also want to give a big thank you to Jim Salmon and John Carr from 1180 WHAM radio for coming out to host the proceedings.

We had over 50 pre-registered contestants digging through the sand in hopes of finding the winning token.  With lots of families in attendance, this parking lot saw more bustling than it does on our busiest days!  Despite the fact that nobody won the $10,000 Grand Prize,  it really was a fabulous time rooting on our friends and customers.

Our big winner for the day was Annie, from the township of Holly – a lovely lady and a hometown gal, we were really glad to see her walk away with the consolation cash prize.    We wish her the best, as well as all our other Rochester friends who came down to the shop for some fun and excitement!

Looking for Ten Grand in the Sand


Ten Grand in the Sand – This Weekend!

The excitement down at our Rochester shop is growing this week in anticipation of our big summer contest in conjunction with WHAM 1180 radio, which will take place this Saturday – September 11th.   We will hold our “10 Grand in the Sand” event at our main Rochester location at 3315 Chili Ave. in southwest Rochester, and we are expecting a great time!

With the chance to win $10,000, a Carnival Cruise or many other awesome prizes, we hope to see all the great people we serve every day up at our Chili Ave. location this weekend.   And even some of the event’s attendees who have not pre-registered will be allowed to participate in the contest and try for their chance to win.  All entrants of the contest will have their chance to dig through the sand to find a numbered coin – which corresponds to one of our many prizes, from movie tickets and Aquapel to a cruise or cash.

While this week’s weather may be less than ideal for a romp in the sand, with a $10,000 Grand Prize and some great consolation prizes,we hope this event will bring all our Rochester comrades for some end of summer fun and a chance to win big!

Win $10,000 in the Sand with Ray Sands Glass

Ray Sand Glass is excited to announce our summer contest “10 Grand in the Sand with Ray Sands” in conjunction with WHAM 1180.  The contest gives all of our customers and friends in the Rochester area,  a chance to win $10,000 dollars, a Carnival Cruise or a variety of other great runner-up prizes.   Our final drawing will take place on September 11, 2010, in an event held here at the Rochester location of Ray Sands Glass.

Before the day of the contest event we will randomly select about a hundred contestants from all the entries submitted to come down and participate in the event.  At the event contestants will hunt for a token buried in the sand and select one that is numbered from 1 to 100.  After each contestant has drawn a number they will take the envelope that corresponds to the token they selected and see which prize is inside – each contestant will receive a prize. The grand prize winner (one of the hundred tokens, chosen and appointed before the drawing) will have a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize, a Carnival Cruise or a selection of other consolation prizes.

For people interested in finding out more information, the contest will be featured on Jim Salmon’s Home Repair Clinic radio show.  We hope to see all of friends in the Rochester area registering online at Ray Sands Glass.com – all customers who do business with us are automatically entered.  There are some great prizes to be won and some great fun to be had down at our Chili Ave. shop on September 11th.
