The American Red Cross is the “Sponsor” of the Giveaway. Ace Hardware® Corporation is the “Prize
Provider” and is responsible for providing the prizes in the Giveaway as directed by Sponsor as well as
promotion of the Giveaway. Employees of the Sponsor, Prize Provider, and their respective affiliates,
representatives, parent companies, subsidiaries, advertising, promotional, public relations and judging
agencies, prize suppliers and their immediate family members (spouses, parents, siblings and children,
regardless of where they live) and persons with whom they are domiciled are not eligible to participate.
All entrants must have a valid mailing address, email address and phone number. Sponsor may require
satisfactory proof of Entrant’s identity and eligibility.
2. TO ENTER: All required steps specified herein are referred to as the “Entry,” and each person who
submits one (1) is an “Entrant.” (a) To Enter by Presenting to Donate Blood: An eligible Entrant who
presents to donate blood or blood products (platelets or plasma), regardless of whether a donation is
made, during the Giveaway Period and who has a valid email address in their American Red Cross donor
profile, will be automatically entered for a chance to win. Up to ONE (1) Entry via presentation attempt –
ONE (1) per each eligible donor presentation – are permitted per Entrant. (b) To Enter Without
Presenting for a Blood Donation: An eligible individual may send an email to
customercare@redcross.org without presenting to donate and include within the email the name of the
Giveaway, “Ultimate Father’s Day Traeger® Grill Package,” individual’s first name, last name, and valid
mailing and email addresses to become an Entrant. (c) Total Entries: There is a limit of ONE (1) total

constitutes Entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules, along with the Giveaway
website (RedCrossBlood.org/AceHardware) terms and conditions, if any, and to be bound by Sponsor’s
privacy policy and to all decisions of Sponsor, which are final in all matters related to the Giveaway and
which Sponsor may decide in its sole discretion. Winning a Prize is contingent upon fulfilling all
requirements set forth herein. PARTICIPATION IN THE GIVEAWAY IS VOLUNTARY AND DOES NOT
REQUIRE YOU TO MAKE A DONATION, DONATE BLOOD OR PRESENT TO DONATE BLOOD, OR
PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM SPONSOR OR PRIZE PROVIDER.
By submitting an Entry, you agree that Sponsor may contact you via social media, including on Facebook,
Instagram or Twitter by sending you a direct message, tagging you, posting to your social media page or
4
naming you on Sponsor’s social media pages. Automated or bulk Entries or Entries submitted by third
parties will be disqualified. Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of
Entries by using multiple and/or different identities, email addresses, or any other methods will void
that Entrant’s Entries, and that Entrant may be disqualified at Sponsor’s discretion. Multiple Entrants are
not permitted to share the same email address. In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized
account holder of the email address used will be deemed to be the participant. The “authorized account
holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service
provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with
the submitted address. Potential prize winner may be required to show proof to Sponsor of being the
authorized account holder or forfeit the prize. Entries specifying an invalid, non-working, or inactive
email address will be disqualified and ineligible to win.
3. SELECTION OF WINNER: Decisions of the random drawing are final. Odds of winning depend upon the
number of eligible Entries received. Winner will be selected as follows: All eligible Entries, including
through presentation to donate and through email to customercare@redcross.org, during the Giveaway
Period, will be combined to one list. TWO (2) potential prize winners will be selected by Sponsor’s
representative from the list in a random drawing to be held on or about June 28, 2021. The potential prize
winners will be notified on or about June 28, 2021 using the email address provided with Entry and may
be awarded the prize subject to verification of eligibility, including return of the Affidavit, as defined
below, and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules. Failure by a potential prize winner to
respond within seventy-two (72) hours after the second of two (2) attempts will result in disqualification
and an alternate potential prize winner then will be selected in the same manner from all remaining
eligible Entries. If Sponsor is unable to determine and verify a potential winner after repeated alternate
drawings or if Sponsor fails to receive a sufficient number of entries to correspond to the number of
prize(s) available to be awarded, Sponsor reserves the right to not award the all prize(s).
