Cardinals to give away daily prizes on the team's social media platforms

Fans have opportunity to win nearly $2,500 worth of prizes during three-week Winning Wonderland contest

The St. Louis Cardinals are giving fans something to cheer about this holiday season by giving away nearly $2,500 worth of prizes over three weeks during the 2nd annual Winning Wonderland promotion on the team's social media platforms (#CardsWonderland).

Beginning today, the Cardinals' social media accounts will highlight one item every day from the team's holiday gift guide - the one-stop shop for Cardinals fans on your holiday shopping list - and give fans the opportunity to win it, or a similar prize.

To win, fans must follow the Cardinals on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram. Every morning, the team will post the official Winning Wonderland contest prompt on all three sites. Fans will have 24 hours to follow the prompt and submit their creative entry by using the hashtag #CardsWonderland on Twitter or Instagram, or by posting it in the 'comment' section of the daily Facebook post. Each day, the Cardinals will select the best overall submission from the three platforms and announce one daily winner.

The contest runs Monday, December 1st through Saturday, December 20th, and offers fans the opportunity to win one of 19 prizes including a game-used baseball, a magazine subscription, five-game ticket packs to the 2015 season, passes to the annual Cardinals Care Winter Warm-Up, a one-hour photo shoot on the field at Busch Stadium, and much more.

"Tis the season of giving, so we are getting into the holiday spirit by rewarding our fans who follow us on social media," said Ron Watermon, Vice President of Communications. "We hope to transform Cardinals Nation into a Winning Wonderland for some lucky fans while also promoting a variety of great Cardinals-themed holiday gift ideas."
