Celebrate Black History Month with Dollar General {Prize Pack Giveaway}

Dollar General logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Valerie!}

While there are holidays throughout the year that are a little frivolous (I'm look at you, If Pets Had Thumbs Day on March 3rd and you, Tapioca Pudding Day on July 15th), February represents a month that is important to remember and honor: Black History Month.

This year, along with the annual observance and remembrance of important people and events in African-American history, Coca-Cola and Dollar General would like to join in the celebration with a little fun with their Honor Heritage Sweepstakes.

Dollar General SweepstakesRight now Coca-Cola is offering Dollar General customers a chance to win a family trip for up to 10 people to the 2012 ESSENCE Music Festival. This festival – which takes place July 6 through 8 – is the country's largest annual African-American music and empowerment event.

What started as a long weekend of great music (and food) in New Orleans back in 1995, the ESSENCE Music Festival has evolved into the largest African-American cultural event of the summer, featuring music from the hottest chart-toppers year after year – from old school (Aretha Franklin is a headliner this year!) to new.

Essence Music Festival logoThe Honor Heritage Sweepstakes is part of Dollar General's Black History Month celebration, the first of several Dollar General initiatives honoring "Every Day Heroes." The year-long program will honor community heroes – from the firemen and veterans to teachers and caregivers.

Along with the trip to New Orleans, shoppers who purchase qualifying products may also be eligible to win instant prizes, including $50 and $25 in Live Nation Concert Cash. For a chance to win, Dollar General shoppers can check their receipt for a special code upon purchasing qualifying products and visit DollarGeneral.com to enter (and see the complete sweepstakes rules).

This sweepstakes ends on February 26th, so visit your nearest Dollar General store and online to be sure to get your entries in. Who knows? Maybe you'll be heading to New Orleans this summer!

In the meantime, thanks to the generosity of Procter & Gamble, one person will be able to enjoy a great set of prizes for themselves, because...

One lucky person will win a Dollar General Black History Month

I fondly remember the meet and greet she granted my daughter two weeks before her passing.
