Vendor PLINKO

Do you have promotional items to donate?  Donate them to the Vendor PLINKO game.  Each attendee receives a ticket to play, they get one chance to release the Plinko chip and win a prize.  Donated items from exhibitors range from $100 gift cards to key chains.  Bring your items to the IRWA Registration Desk on Monday afternoon and a staff person will place them in the game.
