Weis Pet Contest Back on Facebook
After a popular online contest made Brandi, a 7-year-old German shepherd mix, Weis Markets’ Pet of the Game at a Penn State football game in 2010, the grocer’s second annual Pet of the Game Facebook Contest returns to its official Facebook fan page.
Beginning Sept. 2, weekly Pet of the Game winners will receive a $50 Weis gift cards and entries in the grand-prize contest for eight tickets to the Penn State-Nebraska game at Beaver Stadium on Nov. 12, VIP tailgating passes and a $250 Weis gift card.
To enter, fans must “like” the official Weis Markets Facebook page and enter a photo of their favorite pet in Penn State gear or colors. Each entrant will receive a coupon for a free bag of Weis brand Paws dog or cat treats. Last year’s winner is owned by the family of Michelle Curran, is a Penn State student.
The 2010 contest included 136 competitors, including dogs, cats, horses, gerbils and a rabbit. Each week between Sept. 2 and Oct. 28, there will be a winner of a $50 Weis gift card. Winners are based on how many votes the pet’s photo receives on Facebook. Those winners will then compete to be the grand-prize winner, the picture that garners the most votes among Weis Markets Facebook fans.
Founded in 1912, Weis Markets operates 164 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, New Jersey and West Virginia.
