CHICAGO, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jelmar, the family-owned, Chicago-based cleaning products company, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its beloved heritage product – Tarn-X® Tarnish Remover. To commemorate the occasion, the company is hosting a contest in partnership with Chicago, the band, and the Chicago Parks Foundation. Fans will have the opportunity to win tickets to a VIP experience at the band's 50th anniversary concert on July 12, 2017 in Chicago. Jelmar will also be donating to the Chicago Parks Foundation to help keep the city's parks and beaches clean and beautiful for years to come.
To have a chance at winning VIP experience tickets to the Chicago concert, worth $1,000 each, participants must find a large, "golden" trumpet hidden in a Buckingham Fountain Park location between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 24th, and upload a photo of themselves with the trumpet along with the hashtag "#TarnXRocks" to the comment section of the Tarn-X & Chicago the Band 50th Anniversary Celebration Facebook event page, located at http://bit.ly/2qJMz9D.
Each participant will be entered to win two VIP tickets to the Chicago concert that also includes hospitality, a 90-minute "meet and greet" with the opportunity to pose for pictures with the band, as well as two gift bags with band swag. A winner will be selected randomly every hour during the event.

"We want to celebrate our 50-year milestone with all of those who have helped us get to where we are today, including our employees, our customers and our fans.
