Cincinnati, OH (PressExposure) September 23, 2009 -- Winners have been selected for Roto-Rooterâs Chilling Tales Sweepstakes, the contest launched alongside its recent book launch Chilling Tales from the Porcelain Seat. Patricia Frederick of Palos Hills, Illinois took home the top prize, and will join SyFy Channelâs Ghost Hunters Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson on a ghost hunt of the Stanley hotel, filming location of the movie The Shining.
Craig Mortensen of Fremont, Nebraska took home the second prize, a stay at the Spaulding Inn, owned and operated by Ghost Hunters stars Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson.
âOur Chilling Tales contest is a great addition to our promotions surrounding our book Chilling Tales from the Porcelain Seat,â Roto-Rooter spokesperson Paul Abrams said. âWe wanted the prizes to embody the same quirky and sometimes eerie things that can accompany plumbing disasters, and nothing fits the bill better than a ghost hunt.â
Abrams added that the book makes a perfect gift for Halloween or holiday gift exchanges.
The book, which is still available at http://www.chillytales.com and http://www.rootorooter.com, is a vignette-style bathroom reader that features the SciFi channelâs Ghost Hunters Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson as they address and solve some of Americaâs most frightening and hilarious plumbing disasters.
