This contest is bound to end in a tie
Search is on for the ugliest neckwear in Portland
It's time for Portland-area dads to dig deep into the back of their closets. What they find there could win them a bit of cash on Saturday.
In honor of Father's Day, Coastal Farm and Ranch stores are searching for the ugliest tie in town, and will reward one lucky person with a $50 gift card grand prize.
'For years the big joke has always been giving Dad a tie for Father's Day,' says Coastal owner Buzz Wheeler. 'Bring in an old tie and we'll instantly give you a free $5 gift card just for entering the contest. It should be a bunch of fun. We can't wait to see all the crazy ties.'
To get ready for Father's Day, there will also be a free barbeque on Saturday for all dads from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Other family members can enjoy a burger and cold drink for only twenty-five cents, but Dad is always free.
