BONIDE MONEY BOOTH WINNERS
At the Arett Open House, Bonide hosted a Money Booth, where they put fake money (funny money) and real cash inside an air booth. Participants got to keep whatever real cash they grab in an allotted time frame (about 20 seconds). Bonide totaled up the real cash and the funny money and attendees with the highest dollar total earned additional prizes.
Valerie Cichanowicz from Southold Garden & Pet in Southold, NY, won 10,000 circulars at the Bonide money booth. Southold Garden & Pet will receive 10,000 circulars designed, printed, and mailed to customers in their area.
