Penticton Western News/Downtown Penticton Association contest

Congratulations to Chris Cottrill, the winner of $500 in gift certificates from participating merchants in our annual Shop Local promotion.

A draw was then made from the 30 lucky people who received a bear to win $500 in gift certificates.
