Jefferson County Chamber Of Commerce Kicks Off Its Summer, “That’s The Ticket” Giveaway

Celebrate All There Is To Do In & Around Jefferson County! The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce is pulling out all the stops with a new giveaway that’s designed to celebrate the many things to do in and around Jefferson County.  The July, “That’s The Ticket” prize package includes over $2,500 in tickets to events ranging from the Jefferson County Fair and Pittsburgh Steelers games to the Post-Gazette Amphitheatre and local favorites like the United Way’s, “Taste Of The County.”  The drawing is open to the public and for just $10 per entry, someone gets the chance to be the sole winner of the entire list of prizes.

“We are trying to accomplish a few things with this fundraiser,” Chamber President, Tricia Maple, explained.  “We want to negate the old, “there’s nothing to do” comment that you hear so often and also showcase what a great area we live in for entertainment options.  One of the best things about our area is that you get the best of both worlds when you live here – the comfort, affordability and intimacy of small town living with amazing entertainment, sports-related and cultural events within a short drive in any direction.”

Another goal of this project is to drive traffic to the Chamber’s website,, which has been a work in progress for the past year and a half.  The website is a great resource for anyone in business, thinking of starting a business or planning to visit or relocate to Jefferson County. One of its primary goals is to promote the over 450 Chamber member businesses through the online membership directory which allows visitors to the site to search for a member business by name or by category.

The drawing will run the entire month of July with entries available via the website and also at the Chamber offices located at 630 Market Street in downtown Steubenville.  The winner will be drawn on August 1st.  For a complete list of prizes, visit the Chamber website and click on the, “That’s the Ticket” ad in the center of the home page.  From there you may enter the drawing and/or view and print the prize list.  For more information, contact the Chamber offices at 740.282.6226.

The Chamber would like to thank the following member businesses and organizations who donated or sponsored items in the prize package:  The Jefferson County Fair Board, Historic Fort Steuben, Valley Hospice, Inc., United Way of Jefferson County, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Jefferson County, The Fort Steuben Mall, Piergallini Catering, The Herald Star & Weirton Daily Times, New York Life/John Cucarese, The Ville Restaurant & Bar, The UPS Store – Steubenville and Advanced Entertainment Limousine.
