Come on Down to The Price is Right!

Have you ever dreamt of dropping a Plinko chip to win $10,000 or spinning the big wheel to head to the showcase? Maybe you just wish for the chance to run on stage so you can give Drew Carey a big bear hug. Either way, Gardner-White could make it your reality.

Between 3-7 p.m. on Oct. 29 at our Hall Road location, the Hollywood production team for The Price is Right will select two winners to fly to Los Angeles to see the show, and one of the winners will have the chance to be a contestant. Better start studying your product prices!

As much as we like providing our customers with fun contests and opportunities like this, we want to use them as a way to help the community as well. That’s why we are teaming up with Forgotten Harvest and CBS62 to collect food donations. All we ask of you is to bring a non-perishable food item with you to the contestant search to contribute.

Forgotten Harvest is an organization dedicated to fighting hunger and replenishing pantries by collecting donated and unused items and distributing it to regional emergency food providers. As a local company, Gardner-White strives to partner with other local companies to help lift our community together.

So come on down to our Hall Road location to meet the producers of The Price is Right, take your chance at becoming a contestant and donate to a great cause.
