holiday-pets
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but Nov. 22 through Dec. 12 a picture of your pet dressed in its finest holiday attire could be worth up to $1,000 during the 2013 Exchange Patriot Pet Online Holiday Photo Contest.

To enter, visit the Exchange at www.facebook.com/AAFES.BX.PX and fill out the entry form or send a digital holiday-themed photograph of your pet plus a description (name, breed or type of pet) of your pet in 50 words or less to PatriotFamily@aafes.com. Entrants must include their name, email and home address, name of the nearest Exchange, daytime phone number, rank or occupation of sponsor.

One grand-prize winner will receive a $1000 Exchange gift card, two runners-up will each receive a $500 Exchange gift card and six winners will take home a $125 Exchange gift card.

“Pets play a huge role in the lives of families,” said Exchange Senior Enlisted Adviser Tony Pearson. “This contest is a great way for families to share their furry and sometimes scaly friends with the world and maybe win a little extra holiday shopping money as well.”
