The release of the annual holiday Skyline Chili sweater “has quickly become a highly anticipated tradition,” Skyline officials said in a release. “Last year, thousands of fans across the country entered the online contest to win a sweater for their wardrobe. Thanks to the fervent response to the release on social media, the 2018 edition also sold out quickly on Skyline’s digital (merchandise) store.”

We hope that all of our winners use their new swag to show off their love for Skyline and help us to recognize our 70th birthday.”
