ATLANTA — The IWF Board of Directors has approved a promotion to award up to $105,000 in prize awards to eligible IWF 2008 attendees through prize drawings, according to Charles R. (Tommy) Tomkins, IWF 2008 chairman and president of Cresent Fine Furniture Co., based in Gallatin, TN. 

“The government has put together a program for taxpayers to take advantage of the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 with new incentives for equipment investment,” said Tomkins. “IWF wanted to give our attendees some added incentive by contributing $105,000 to be awarded in prize vouchers for winners selected in the drawings to use toward the purchase of products from contracted IWF 2008 exhibitors. There will be one $10,000 prize voucher, three $5,000 prize vouchers and ten $1,000 prize vouchers given away each day on Thursday, Friday and Saturday during IWF 2008. Prize vouchers will be awarded through random drawings to eligible companies attending IWF 2008. As an added incentive, we will be giving away $100 gas card prizes to the company representative listed on the entry form of each company that is selected to win a prize.  There will also be a special prize drawing for a chance for those same company representatives to win a 42-in. flat screen television.”

To redeem a prize, drawing winners will need to provide IWF with proof of purchase for purchases made from contracted IWF 2008 exhibitors. Purchases must be made 30 days from the end of the show.  For more information on rules, how to enter, and where and when the drawing will take place, contact IWF at [email protected].
