Turner’s 100th Anniversary $100,000 Charitable Donation Details
Earn Money For Your Charity This Year
We want to thank our local communities for supporting Turner’s for 100 years. So, we are donating $100,000 to local qualified charities this year.
How It Works
Customers register in store March 2015 – December 2015 for a chance to win a share of $100,000 in free furniture. Drawings held monthly with 28 winners per month. There will be winners from all 10 Turner’s locations. The winning individuals then choose a qualified charity to receive a matching cash donation from Turner’s.
Monthly winning breakdown:
One $5,000 winner…$5,000 donation to individual’s charity of choice
One $1,000 winner…$1,000 donation to individual’s charity of choice
Two $500 winners…$500 donation to individuals’ charity of choice ($500 to each charity)
Four $250 winners…$250 donation to individuals’ charity of choice ($250 to each charity)
Twenty $100 winners…$100 donation to individuals’ charity of choice ($100 to each charity)
Each month, a total of $10,000 in FREE furniture will go to individuals and a total of $10,000 in cash to charities. By the end of the year, a total of $100,000 in FREE furniture will be given to individuals and $100,000 in cash will be donated to charities. Individuals can win one time throughout the duration of contest. There is no limit on how many times a charity can receive the matching donation.
