City announces winners of Art & Balloon Festival giveaway
August 22, 2013, Lincoln Mayor Keith Snyder and 4th Ward Alderman Jeff Hoinacki, the City Council’s coordinator for the Lincoln Art and Balloon Festival, have announced the winners in the City’s Art and Balloon Festival Giveaway. As a Prime Sponsor of the Festival the City of Lincoln receives several benefits and complimentary items. This year, as it has for each of the past four years, the City chose to share those benefits with the citizens and taxpayers of Lincoln, the folks who underwrite the cost of City’s sponsorship and every other activity of City government.
There were 124 entries in the giveaway contest. Boxes for entries were placed in City Hall, the Lincoln Public Library, and the office of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce. The winners’ names were pulled from all the entries in a drawing conducted in the Mayor’s office at 4:30 p.m. this evening. Listed below are the winners:
• Matthew Fish of N. McLean St.
• Kim Hall of N. Adams St.
• Elaine Knight of 8th St.
• Shelley Spellman of Rutledge Dr.
• Amy Tippett of Nicholson Rd.
Each of the winners will receive a prize package that includes two admission passes to the Airport for all weekend, two 2013 Art & Balloon Festival pins, and two Art & Balloon Festival t-shirts.
The City would like to thank all the contestants who entered. It also wishes everyone a safe, fun, and delightful weekend. We hope everyone in Lincoln is able to participate in as many of the Festival events as they can. Remember also, each of us is an ambassador to all the visitors we’ll have in town all weekend. Please make them feel welcome and provide any assistance you can.
