Berkshire Bank, America’s Most Exciting Bank® and the official bank of Boston Bruins coverage on NESN, announced today its season long contests and promotions affiliated with New England’s most watched sports network. The partnership includes sponsorship of NESN’s “Hockey Night in New England” broadcast for the regular season and the playoffs in addition to online and digital promotion elements.
Receive an assist with your mortgage for a year through the Berkshire Bank Exciting Rewind Sweepstakes
Heralded by Banker & Tradesman as a top ten mortgage lender in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Berkshire Bank will team with NESN to randomly select one winner and assist them with their mortgage. Last season, John F. McCarthy of West Brookfield, Massachusetts won the inaugural Exciting Rewind Mortgage Sweepstakes and received the grand prize of $12,000 to assist with his mortgage for a year. Throughout the season, NESN analyst Andy Brickley will break down game footage to illustrate top plays and game changing moments. Viewers will be encouraged to watch each Berkshire Bank Exciting Rewind on nesn.com/BerkshireBank and vote monthly for their favorite. Every month, winners will be randomly selected to participate in Berkshire’s Money Pucks game of chance. At the end of the hockey season, one person will be awarded the grand prize of having Berkshire assist them with their monthly mortgage payments for a calendar year.
“Berkshire Bank is committed to helping customers find life’s exciting moments and are excited to partner with NESN again this hockey season,” stated Allan Costello, Senior Vice President, Home Lending. “Last year we received over 3,000 entries in the Exciting Rewind Mortgage Sweepstakes, and we anticipate greater interest this season because what’s more thrilling than no mortgage payments for a year.”
Money Pucks – A Chance to Score Up to $1,000
A new element to the Exciting Rewind contest this year—Money Pucks—is a simulated floor hockey game where monthly winners take shots at a goal using a floor hockey stick and foam balls. Each monthly winner gets five shots on goal, and each shot is worth $100. If all five shots are netted, they will receive a $500 bonus for a grand total of $1,000. Each monthly winner will receive a minimum of $100 for participating in Money Pucks even if they do not score any shots. The monthly winner will have to travel to their closest Berkshire Bank location to play Money Pucks. A list of branch locations can be found at berkshirebank.com/locations.
In addition to the Exciting Rewind Mortgage Sweepstakes and the monthly Money Pucks contest, Berkshire Bank will be holding monthly promotions and drawings at the New England branches throughout the hockey season. Visit berkshirebank.com for more details and the nearest branch location.
