Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, Harris Teeter Store Director Stephen Roberts will present a $5,000 check to Carrboro High School PTSA as part of Harris Teeter’s Together in Education (TIE) $100,000 Giveaway.


During the $100,000 Giveaway, a winner (“Weekly Contestant”) is randomly drawn every Wednesday between Jan. 22, 2014 and April 2, 2014.  Harris Teeter’s TIE Prize Patrol surprises the Weekly Contestant at home the following Saturday.  The Prize Patrol presents the Weekly Contestant with an initial $250 and then searches the home for Harris Teeter Brand products.  For every Harris Teeter Brand product found, the Weekly Contestant and the TIE school to which the contestant’s VIC card is linked each earn $50. The total maximum donation each weekend is $10,000.

“Harris Teeter is proud to reinforce its commitment to education by conducting this fun contest which rewards not only the schools participating in our Together in Education program, but also our loyal shoppers,” said Danna Jones, communication specialist for Harris Teeter.

“We are excited by this opportunity to surprise our shoppers with the weekly Prize Patrol all in an effort to support our communities’ schools,” added Jones.

Week 1 winner David Brown earned $5,000 last Saturday when Harris Teeter’s TIE Prize Patrol surprised him and
his family. Brown’s VIC card is linked to Carrboro High School PTSA, so the PTSA is being presented with an equal amount to what  Brown family earned.
In Brown’s home, the Prize Patrol found 91 Harris Teeter brand products, including the weekly Bonus Item which is advertised each week.  If the Bonus Item is found in the Weekly Contestant’s home, the Weekly Contestant and the TIE school will each earn $250.

Nine weeks and $90,000 remain in the contest; be sure your VIC card is linked to a TIE school for a chance to participate in the $100,000 Giveaway.
