Enter the Binny’s Beverage Depot Attendance Game for your chance to win tickets to a regular season Cubs game and $10,000 in cash!

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  Include your name, address, age, and daytime phone number on a 3×5 card or a plain piece of paper and mail your entry to: Binny’s Beverage Depot

Attendance Game, c/o WGN Radio, 435 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611.  Enter as often as you wish but only one entry per envelope may be submitted. Entries will be accepted beginning Monday, March 3, 2014 through close of business Friday, September 19, 2014.  WGN Radio will not be responsible for entries lost, delayed, misdelivered, or damaged in the mail.  This contest will only be played during the regular season and does not apply to any post-season play.

Prior to each Cubs radio broadcast, WGN Radio will randomly draw one entry from among all eligible entries and declare that entrant to be that day’s contestant. Contest is limited to one contestant per household for the 2013 season. The name of that day’s contestant will be announced during the Cubs radio broadcast.  During the broadcast, Pat Hughes and Ron Coomer will co-estimate the game’s official attendance before the actual attendance is announced.  If Pat and Ron’s guess is within 2,000 of the actual attendance, the contestant wins a pair of tickets to a designated Chicago Cubs upcoming home game, to be chosen by Sponsors.  Daily winner will also qualify for the Grand Prize drawing held later in the season.  If a substitute announcer fills in for either Pat or Ron, the substitute will play the game.  Tickets won will be mailed to winner’s mailing address provided in their contest entry.

In the event of a game rainout or cancellation before the official attendance is announced, the contest will be played when the game is rescheduled and the contestant will follow to that game.  In the event the game is not made up, the contest will not be played and that day’s contestant automatically wins the tickets and is entered in the drawing.  In the event that Pat and Ron are unable to play the game on a given date, then that day’s contestant automatically wins the tickets and is entered into the Grand Prize drawing.

Prize Description:

One-hundred and sixty-two (162) attendance game winners will receive a pair of game tickets to a 2014 regular season home Chicago Cubs baseball game. Prize valued at $28. Winners

during approximately the last month of the promotion will receive tickets to a designated 2015 Cubs game.  Odds of winning depend on the number of entries received and correct co-estimation of that day’s attendance by broadcasters Pat Hughes and Keith Moreland.

On or about Monday, September 29, 2014, the Grand Prize drawing will be held.  One (1) contestant will be selected at random from among all the qualifying daily game winners to win $10,000 in cash. Winner will be notified by phone and a notification letter will be sent to winner’s mailing address.  Odds of winning the Grand Prize after qualifying as a daily game winner are 1 out of the number of qualifying daily game winners.  MANY WILL ENTER; FEW WILL WIN.

Winner will be responsible for any applicable taxes and all other expenses related to the grand prize that are not mentioned above.
