City Pride's $5000 winner drawn

WHAT would you do with a $5000 shopping gift voucher to spend on whatever you like?

The winner has been drawn for the third and final draw in the hugely popular City Pride promotion, and someone is about to go shopping with five thousand dollars!

City Pride encourages residents to support their local community and show that local jobs, local business and local pride mean something here in Ipswich!

Queensland Times General Manager Louis Moore said the campaign is an important driver for local business and a great example of how together we can all get behind our city.

"City Pride is all about supporting business and once again the City of Ipswich responded, with thousands of entries received for the three draws," Mr Moore said.

"Every dollar spent in our city is a dollar that benefits our city and with the final draw taking place that's $10,000 going back into local small business thanks to three happy winners."

He also said the City Pride campaign wouldn't be possible without foundation sponsors Ipswich City Council, St Andrews Hospital, and University of Southern Queensland, along with major sponsors Brothers and Riverlink.

Sponsors also include Brassall Shopping Centre, Heritage Bank, Booval Fair, Beaumont Tiles, Stroud Homes, Dancing Bean and St Ives Shopping Centre.

Someone will be getting a phone call today advising them they are the winner, so keep your fingers crossed Ipswich.

"The Queensland Times wishes to thank every business that took part, along with everyone in Ipswich who sent in an entry form," Mr Moore said.

"Supporting local business means a stronger city, and a healthier economy for everyone."
