This survey ensures you receive your hard-earned prize!*

This abbreviated version of our Summer Passport program will feature a GRAND PRIZE including a weekend stay at the newly renovated Downtown Marriott, $100 gift certificate to a downtown restaurant of your choosing and a $50 gift certificate to your favorite downtown retailer. Once you earn 6 points, you will automatically be entered into the drawing for this fabulous grand prize.

*Please note you must visit 6 businesses in ONE of the three passports to win a prize.
