Toy drive offers chance to win Jam tickets

Participants in a Christmas toy drive under way at Major Mortgage in Grand Junction have a chance to win tickets to the 2013 Country Jam music festival.

The toy drive will continue until 5 p.m.  Dec. 21 at the Major Mortgage offices at 2474 Patterson Road. Donations will go to the Salvation Army, which in turn will distribute them to children in Mesa County.

For every new and unwrapped toy donated, participants will receive one entry into a drawing for two, four-day, VIP tickets to Country Jam. The drawing is scheduled to take place at the conclusion of the toy drive on Dec. 21. The winner will be announced on the Major Mortgage Facebook page.

“Every year we try to give back to this community as a token of our appreciation for their support of our business. This year we thought we’d up the ante with Country Jam VIP tickets in an effort to motivate more people to give,” said Ryar Hayward, president of Major Mortgage. “We’re looking forward to great success with this toy drive. Our goal is simple: to bring smiles to children’s faces who otherwise wouldn’t have a big Christmas.”
