BELLEVUE, Wash. (Jun. 27, 2012) – The Bellevue Downtown Association (BDA) and 27 downtown Bellevue restaurants will launch the second annual Bellevue Local Table DINE TO WIN promotion on Sunday, July 1, 2012. By eating out at participating restaurants throughout July, diners will have the chance to win one of two grand prizes:

Round-trip airline tickets and hotel accommodations for two to Honolulu, Hawaii.

$1,350 in dining cards to the 27 DINE TO WIN participating restaurants.

In addition, diners can enter-to-win weekly drawings for $50 gift cards to the 27 participating DINE TO WIN restaurants.

“We’re excited to be back for another year of DINE TO WIN,” said Jennifer Fischer, the BDA’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Restaurateurs worked together on this campaign to put the spotlight on downtown Bellevue as a summer dining destination.”

How to win: Customers spending a minimum of $10 (before tax and gratuity) each time they visit a DINE TO WIN participating restaurant will receive an enter-to-win form for the grand prizes and weekly $50 gift card drawings. There is no limit to the number of enter-to-win forms submitted (diners will receive a new entry form every time at least $10 is spent at a DINE TO WIN restaurant).

Grand prize winners will be notified at the end of the promotion on August 9, 2012. Winners of the $50 restaurant gift card prizes will be notified on Fridays: July 6, July 13, July 20 and July 27.
