RANDOM DRAWING: Grand Prize Winner will be selected in a random drawing on or about August 30, 2022 from
among all eligible entries received. A random drawing will be conducted by Marden-Kane, Inc. (the “Administrator”), in
Syosset, NY, USA, an independent organization whose decisions will be final and binding on all matters relating to this
Sweepstakes, including, but not limited to, whether entries are received timely, whether entries are eligible, or whether an
Entrant should be disqualified.
WINNER NOTIFICATION: Administrator will notify potential winner by email and/or phone at the email address and/or
phone number provided with the entry on or about August 31, 2022. Potential winner will be required to execute and
return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release and where legal, a Publicity Release (the “Affidavit”); and an IRS
Form W-9 within five (5) days following the date of issuance of notification or the prize may be forfeited and awarded to an
alternate potential winner. Potential Grand Prize Winner will be required to furnish his/her social security number that will
be used only for the purpose of reporting the Winner’s prize earnings to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as required
by law. The Sponsor (or a party acting on its behalf) must report the value of the prize to the IRS in the year the prize is
received by the winner. This will be reported to the winner and the IRS in the form of a Form 1099. In the event it is
deemed during the verification process that the potential winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security
number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the prize, such potential winner will be
disqualified and another potential winner will be selected as outlined herein, if possible. Valid social security numbers will
be determined by IRS requirements.
Failure to timely return any documents requested, return of prize notification as undeliverable, or noncompliance with
these Official Rules will result in such potential winner being disqualified. Sponsor shall have no further obligation to that
potential winner, and an alternate potential winner will be selected via a random drawing (time permitting). If potential
winner (i) does not respond to any communication from Sponsor or Administrator within five (5) days of such
communication; (ii) refuses the prize; and/or (iii) the prize or prize notification is rejected or returned as undeliverable,
such potential winner forfeits all rights to be deemed a winner in the Sweepstakes (“Winner”) and receive the prize, that
potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be selected through a random drawing by
the Administrator from the remaining entries (time permitting). Prize must be accepted as awarded. Except where
prohibited by law, the Winner’s entry and acceptance of the prize constitutes permission for the Sponsor to use said
Winner’s name, photograph, likeness, statements, and biographical information, including, without limitation, for
advertising and promotional purposes, without further compensation. POTENTIAL WINNER IS SUBJECT TO
VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF
ANY PRIZE, UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING ENTRY HAS BEEN
VERIFIED, ALL NECESSARY DOCUMENTS HAVE BEEN RETURNED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT
VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. ANY ENTRY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE PROCESSING SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR
ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE ENTRY, IS VOID, AND WILL NOT BE HONORED.
