Prize will not be awarded until all such properly executed Prize Claim Documents are returned. Upon completion of Prize Claim Documents and confirmation as the winner, such winner will be required to confirm the name and contact information for the Friend. The Friend must meet the eligibility criteria as set forth for the Sweepstakes and detailed in Section 2 of these Official Rules.
