Those going to the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra ABBA concert Saturday at the DECC will get a bonus.
Crisp $2 bills. No strings attached. Honest to God.
The National Bank of Commerce will give $2 bills to each person attending the ABBA Mania performance Saturday at the DECC. Itâ€™s all part of the bankâ€™s annual sponsorship of the symphonyâ€™s February pops concert.
Since one of ABBAâ€™s hits was â€œMoney, Money, Money,â€ the bank thought it would be a nice tie-in to give away money, says Joe Konradt, the bankâ€™s president.
â€œPlus, this appeals to more people than our first idea â€” to provide free admission to anyone named Fernando,â€ he said in a prepared statement.
Indeed, canâ€™t be many Fernandos around.
So if all the 2,266 seats are filled at Saturdayâ€™s concert at Symphony Hall, the bank would be out $4,532. The bank also plans to give away another $500 through an ABBA quiz it will post on its website Saturday evening. Entrants can take the quiz at www.nbofc.com and submit their answers until Friday, Feb. 18.
