WestJet and the Toronto Blue Jays™ team up for a new home run contest

CALGARY, Sept. 3, 2015 /CNW/ - WestJet, a proud partner of the Toronto Blue Jays, joins the team in launching a special home run contest running during the rest of its regular season home games at Rogers Centre™.

Fans can enter the contest by visiting and filling out the online entry form. WestJet will award a maximum of three prizes of 25,000 WestJet dollars during the contest period.

If no Blue Jays player hits a home run into the WestJet Flight Deck this season, one lucky contest entrant will win return airfare for four to anywhere WestJet flies, as well as a Blue Jays merchandise package.

"To add to the excitement of what is already a sensational season, this contest will have fans swinging for the fences.
