Tour de Patch is Upon us! But First, Win a Gift Card

Our crew of nearly 20 Southland Patch editors, ad managers and other staff will descend on Tinley TODAY to sprinkle goodies and volunteerism throughout the community. As a preview, let's go on a virtual scavenger hunt!

Today is the day you've been waiting for!

OK, maybe not exactly. But hey, it's the day we at Patch have been waiting for. Today, your Southland Patchers are flocking to  to volunteer, visit with business owners and most importantly for you — hand out TONS of giveaways, such as free gift cards to anyone who utters the secret word, "Zabrocki", to us while we are out and about.

This also brings us to our seventh and final day of our .


If you are the first to correctly identify where this bridge can be found in our village, you get free coffee from Patch in the form of a Starbucks gift card

The Skinny on Tour de Patch:

  • Keep an eye out and join us TODAY, May 30, as we tour the Tinley community. We’ll be pretty easy to find, as we’ll be decked out in our bright green Patch gear.
  • If you see Patchers in Tinley Park, tell us the Secret Word, and win one of our , iTunes or  cards. We'll have other prizes, too, including T-shirts, Patch pens and magnets and more.
  • Throughout the day, you can stop by our home base at Together We Cope to say hello (your best chance of catching us will likely be around lunchtime. 
  • Would you like us to visit your office? Your restaurant? Your nonprofit organization? Let us know! Tell us in the comments and will rain goodies down upon you and your co-workers.
  • Be ready to pose for pictures, or even get in on one of our videos.

Let’s enjoy this village.

See you on tour!

Is there a reason the bridge has been fenced off and closed for about 2 months?
