PIEDMONT TRIAD, N.C. – Piedmont Triad residents who buy local and post photos of their purchases on social media using the #TriadTogether hashtag can start winning a variety of prizes later this month through the #WyndhamChamp #TriadTogether Challenge Giveaway.
Two weeks ago, business, community and economic development leaders from across the region united to launch the #TriadTogether Challenge, urging friends and neighbors to spend more where it impacts more—in small businesses and restaurants in our community.
In a second stage of this effort, residents need only post a picture of themselves buying from a local restaurant or store using the #TriadTogether hashtag from a public account and tag and follow the Wyndham Championship to be entered into the next drawing to win Wyndham Championship prizes. Tagging three friends in a post to encourage them to buy local will earn three extra entries. Drawings will take place across the Wyndham Championship Facebook, Twitter and Instagram platforms.
“The #TriadTogether Challenge has quickly become a vital cooperative effort in our region,” Wyndham Championship tournament director Mark Brazil said. “The Wyndham Championship is proud to support our regional chambers of commerce and other economic development groups in the Triad as they help small businesses in our community. Many of our region’s locally-owned companies and restaurants are struggling to survive, but if we can help them through this challenging time, our collective efforts can make a huge difference in their survival and for our future.”
Drawings will occur on the second and fourth Fridays of each month, January through May, with the first drawing set for Dec. 25. Entries are continuous from the day after a drawing through the following fourth Friday (ex: Dec. 26–Jan. 22 and Jan. 23–Feb. 12, etc.). Entries then start over. Among the available prizes are Wyndham Championship hospitality tickets, autographed pin flags, Polo shirts and more; prizes from other entities, such as the Winston-Salem Open, will also be included. For details, please see the official rules below.
The #TriadTogether Challenge is a cohesive, regional initiative to raise awareness and create a sense of urgency around the critical need to support locally-owned businesses and restaurants, particularly during the pandemic. According to a U.S. Chamber of Commerce poll, a reported one out of every four small businesses is on the brink of permanently closing.
To help, the #TriadTogether Challenge calls on members of the community to shop and eat locally, to share photos on social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) using the #TriadTogether hashtag and to challenge family and friends to also pledge to spend more locally this holiday season and beyond.
Partners in the #TriadTogether Challenge include the Alamance Chamber of Commerce, Burlington Downtown, Business High Point Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Elon, Downtown Greensboro, Inc., Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership, Forward High Point, Greater Winston-Salem, Inc., Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, Piedmont Triad Partnership, Wyndham Championship and Winston-Salem Open. Additional local chambers and organizations across the region are expected to join the #TriadTogether Challenge effort.
