Odds of Winning; Award Notification; Identification of Prize Winner

Prize winners will be selected and notified via e-mail on or about October 12, 2015. A Prize award notification e-mail may contain information needed to claim a Prize, and may include a request that the winner contact us. If a response is requested of a Prize winner but none is received by CCHS within five business days, the Prize may be considered unclaimed and forfeited, in which case, in CCHS's sole determination, an alternate winner may be selected.  Prize winners may be required to sign an Affidavit of Eligibility and agree to a Liability and Publicity Release, and/or to provide additional contact information needed to ship or mail the prize.
