Lindt Festival Bars Return to Prescott Park Arts Festival’s Offerings

PORTSMOUTH NH - The sweet collaboration between Prescott Park Arts Festival and Lindt & Sprungli has returned for the Festival’s 2013 Season. Prescott Park Arts Festival will sell 3,000 of Lindt’s chocolate bars this summer, made in the company's Stratham location, seven bearing golden prize tickets. The grand prize, brought to you by C&J Lines and Federal Savings Bank, is an all-expense paid trip to New York City.
“This was such a huge hit last year that we wanted to continue it. It’s so exciting to be able to offer such great prizes to our audiences, especially with that anticipation of when someone is going to win one of the prizes,” says Executive Director Ben Anderson.
This tasty partnership debuted in 2012, inspired by last year's signature musical, Willy Wonka, and the main character Charlie Bucket's quest to find a special "Golden Ticket" in a chocolate bar. Christine Bullen, vice president of Direct to Consumer and Specialty Channels at Lindt USA, said the collaboration just makes sense.
"Lindt milk chocolate is a real crowd-pleaser," Bullen said, regarding their decision to use their Lindt Excellence Extra Creamy milk chocolate mini bars for the project. "With an estimated more-than-40,000 audience members, including so many children, attending the Prescott Parks Arts Festival musical production of Annie this summer, crowd-pleasing is important!"
The grand prize is an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City, courtesy of C&J Bus Lines and Federal Savings Bank. It includes round trip tickets to NYC on C&J Lines’ luxury bus, top notch hotel accommodations, two nights of dinner, and tickets to a Broadway show. Lindt created a special custom-made wrapper for the occasion, which allowed the company to slip the winning tickets inside at random.
First prize is a year's supply (a bag per month) of Lindt's Lindor truffles, any flavor you choose. Second prize is a Lindt Excellence Chocolate Bar Collection ($48 value), and third prize is a 75-piece bag of Lindor truffles, also any flavor, a $25 value.
The Festival Bars are available for purchase at any the Festival’s 90 + events this summer, which means that one grand prize, could be found any day. The incentive for snagging one of these limited chocolate bars continues. There are still the remaining six prizes from Lindt that have yet to be claimed, and not to mention, everyone who buys a Festival bar will get to enjoy a sweet treat. Best of all, the proceeds from the Lindt Festival Bars will directly support the community nonprofit.
You can keep track of the prizes that have been claimed by checking out the poster that displays the all of the prizes in the Festival’s Merchandise Booth. The Festival will check off each prize as they found and redeemed. Try your luck, and you just might be this year’s lucky winner.
