Good Riddance Day 2012 Recap
Tens of thousands of people passed through Times Square on Dec. 28 to bid farewell to bad memories of 2012 in celebration of Good Riddance Day. The winner of Cintas’ annual Good Riddance Day contest, Adam Ingber of Long Beach, N.Y., won the individual prize package for bidding “good riddance” to Hurricane Sandy and its effects on his family. As part of his prize, Ingber won a cash prize and was the first to shred his memory during the event. Pearl Chan was selected for the “most creative” entry on the day of the event. Chan received an iPad and two tickets to a Broadway show after she said “good riddance” to an old relationship. The event, held by Cintas, Times Square Alliance, and Countdown Entertainment, attracted hundreds of New Yorkers and visitors, all ready to shred their 2012 memories securely with an on-site Cintas truck. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people also discussed Good Riddance Day on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
