Cornwall Ontario – Earlier this fall, we spoke about the return of Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill’s sports-based and community-driven program – “If Your Team Wins, Your Community Wins!”. The competition, as part of the Home Team Advantage program, rewards local sports teams with points every time they eat at Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill for a chance to win a first-place prize of $20,000 towards a community refresh project! The community who comes in second place will receive $10,000 and the third place community will win $5,000, courtesy of Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill.
With less than one month to go in the competition, it’s coming down to the wire and we’re here to let you know that Cornwall is one of the TOP 12 cities in a close race to win one of three grand prizes towards a community refresh project! And Cornwall needs your help: the community is calling out for support and encouraging all sports teams to get to their local Shoeless Joe’s at 1110 Brookdale Avenue to accumulate additional points during the last stretch of the competition!
“It’s great to see such enthusiasm from the communities involved in this program,” says Doug Gilmour, program ambassador and hockey legend. “With the standings being so close, it’s clear that the community spirit is alive and well. There’s still time for any of these communities to come out on top and it will be up to the local sports teams to continue with their support and head to their local Shoeless Joe’s in order to take home the prize.”
The final winners and selected refresh projects of the Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill “If Your Team Wins, Your Community Wins!” competition will be announced in January 2014, and one lucky team will win a private dinner with Doug Gilmour!
