Safeway, Smithfield Hold In-store Sweepstakes
All during November, shoppers at any Safeway Inc. division store who buy a participating Smithfield product using their in-store Club Cards will be eligible to win tickets to an upcoming “Paula Deen Live” show in Sacramento, Calif., on Feb. 3, 2012. Deen has been the Smithfield spokeswoman since 2006.
Nine national grand-prize winners will receive two tickets to attend the show, round-trip airplane tickets for two; and hotel accommodations for two. Additionally, 100 winners from Safeway’s North California division will be randomly chosen to win two tickets to the show. The selections will take place Dec. 15.
Participating banners are Safeway, Pak’n Save, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Dominick’s, Carrs, Eagle and Genuardi.
The Smithfield-sponsored promotion is part of the protein provider’s ongoing relationship with Pleasanton, Calif.-based Safeway. In 2011, Virginia-based Smithfield and the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) donated 125,000 pounds of protein, or 500,000 servings, to food banks in Reno, Nev.; Denver; Portland, Ore.; and Seattle, at Safeway’s request. “Feeding the Hungry” is a joint program of the UFCW and Smithfield to donate and help deliver 20 million servings of protein over three years to food banks around the United States
Smithfield has also teamed with other grocery retailers across the country to donate more than 13 million servings of protein to Feeding America food banks and other nonprofit organizations.
