|American Tobacco Celebrates Holidays with Month-long Jingle Bull Bash
Lucky Strike Tower Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 3rd
American Tobacco is the busiest workshop this side of the North Pole!
The Jingle Bull Bash, a season-long celebration featuring high energy events both familiar and totally fresh. Starting Dec. 3 through Jan. 2, the Jingle Bull’s marquee moments include:
The all-new Triangle Christmas Tree Challenge: The Challenge invites non-profits and supporters to decorate one of 50 Christmas trees to be displayed on campus throughout the Jingle Bull Bash. Six prizes — ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 — await the non-profits behind the trees deemed “best decorated.”
Fans will select the top three winners by texting their votes starting at 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3 through Dec. 16. All-star judges will select an overall favorite on the final day of text voting (standard rates may apply).
You can view the trees at WRAL.com. WRAL News on FOX 50 will announce the winners on Friday, Dec. 17th. Brought to you by FOX 50, WRAL.com, Duke Energy and the Triangle Community Foundation.
