The Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce officially kicked off the holiday season Saturday night by lighting the lights on the Memphis square.

A surprising number of residents braved the cold to hear comments from Memphis Mayor William Reckenberg, listen to the musical stylings of The Brothers and Sisters Quartet, visit Santa, see a live Camel, and sign up for a drawing for five hundred dollars in Memphis Bucks.

The Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce gave away five hundred dollars in Memphis bucks in varying increments to twenty lucky winners.

The two hundred fifty dollar grand prize went to Elaine Burkholder.

Rosemary Briggs won fifty dollars.  Twenty dollar winners were Landon King, Teresa Fischer, Phoebe Douglas, Judy Musgrove, Beth Dalton, Jim McClintic, Lisa Baker, Laura Schenk, and Ella Owings.

Memphis Bucks ten dollar winners included Kara Romore, Vicki Baldwin, Joe Rinearson, Rachel Reckenberg, Jeannie Parrish, Kim Smith, Celia Brown, Alyssa Clair and Wendy Davis.
