Turkey Toss ’13

Saturday, November 16 from 10am-2pm

We’re partnering with Rescue Missions and Sonic Drive-Ins up and down the Valley for the ANNUAL TURKEY TOSS!

At all three locations, the goal is the same: to bring frozen turkeys to donate to the local Rescue Mission in your area.  Not only do your turkeys feed thousands of homeless and recovering beyond the holidays, but you’ll also get a very special TOTE BAG courtesy of Spirit 88.9 & 100.1.  Stick around and play our Turkey Toss game for a chance to win more prizes (like posters, CD’s, or other swag)!

Here are the locations of the Sonic Drive-Ins hosting the Turkey Toss:

When you hear that secret song at the specific time, call 877-530-5388.  The 8th caller will win the CD of the day AND qualify to enter the drawing for the GRAND PRIZE! If you didn’t get it the first day, make sure you TRY AGAIN the next day all the way til Friday!

Oh, and that grand prize includes:

  • Four 3-day passes to SWC (August 1st-3rd in Monterey, CA)
  • A reserved campsite on the festival grounds
  • A family size tent
  • A gas card for transportation
  • A grocery card to round out your camping experience!
