Monday, March 10, 2014, Harris Teeter Store Director Wes Holcomb will present a $2,950 check to Paisley Magnet School 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. 29, 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 4 winners, the Reed family of Winston-Salem, NC, earned $2,950 last Saturday when Harris Teeter’s TIE Prize Patrol visited their home. The Reed’s VIC card is linked to Paisley Magnet School, so the school is being presented with an equal amount to what Reed earned.

In  the Reed home, the Prize Patrol found 50 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.

Five weeks and $50,000 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.
