Weekend Balita's booth from last year's US-Philippines Expo

Weekend Balita and the US Asian Post are holding a raffle promotion to give away 100 free admission tickets to the US-Philippines Expo 2012.  There will be 50 winners who will receive two free admission tickets each.

The raffle draw, which was originally scheduled to end on July 27, 2012, will be extended for four more days to give a chance to more Weekend Balita readers to participate in the promotion during the last weekend of July.

Invited to attend the raffle drawing are US-Philippine Expo founder Ruben Panopio, Jr., Philippine Press Club of America President Myrna Aquitania, and Balita Media Executive Editor Rhony Laigo.

Winners will be notified by phone or e-mail. The winners list will be published in the newspapers, Weekend Balita and the US Asian Post, and the websites, www.weekendbalita.com and www.Usasianpost.com.

A free admission ticket is good for one entry to the US-Philippines Expo 2012 on August 4 or 5 at the Fairplex Building 4 in Pomona, California.  This ticket does not include participation in the Grand Raffle Draw.  However, Grand Raffle Draw tickets may be purchased separately.  Regular admission tickets that are qualified to join the Grand Raffle Draw may also be purchased at the Fairplex Pomona Box Office.  The regular admission price is $9.00 for adults and $6.00 for seniors and children.
