Swensons or its designee will contact the potential Prize winners within ten (10 days) following the random drawing. If the notification sent by Swensons is returned as undeliverable, or a potential winner cannot be contacted for whatever reason, the prize will be forfeited and Swensons may randomly select an alternate winner.
