Jameson Irish Whiskey is making St. Patrick’s Day fun by offering fans the chance to win cash for taking the holiday off work. “Last year, and for the first time in more than 250 years, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations were called off across the country…and here we are again,” the Irish whiskey brand wrote in a news release. “Jameson Irish Whiskey, however, believes we need the spirit and camaraderie of the holiday now more than ever!” In the spirit of St. Patty’s, Jameson is encouraging people to take “SPTO” (St. Patrick’s time off) to kick back and celebrate on March 17, raising a glass with friends either virtually or masked up, with a 6-foot social distance.
To sweeten the deal, adults in the U.S., ages 21 and up, are invited to enter the limited-time sweepstakes for a chance to win $50 to make their plans great. The SPTO sweepstakes will end at midnight on March 7. Jameson said that 1,000 people will be awarded the prize money, with an additional $50 donated on behalf of each winner to the Restaurant Workers Community Foundation, complementing a $150,000 donation made by Jameson.
