RAFFLE & Donation Information

Please read all these important details!!!

Here's the deal:

  1. Pledge Gift Card donations (if you want to 🙂 - any amount or item
  2. Print out raffle tickets, write Business Name on back of each RAFFLE TICKETS
  3. Collect entries when your customers spend $50+

Details below:

As you see above, we are advertising that folks can enter a drawing to receive a Gift Card when they spend over $50 at your business. To keep this simple, we are asking that you print out and collect the entries. (If anyone argues that they should be given an entry, just give them for details.) You may use any small jar, box, or basket to collect them. Here is a template to print out, RAFFLE TICKETS. Be sure to put your Business Name on the back, so we'll know whose customers won! Make sure you can read the phone number AND add those emails to your customer list!

Your block captain or Eda will pick up entry tickets Monday 11/26 and winners will be drawn and notified by phone.

The amount of winners, depends on the amount of Gift Cards YOU and your neighboring businesses pledge. (Ex: $, free appetizer, free class, free mani, free consulting, etc.) You will keep the Gift Card/Certificate there at your place of business, so that the winner will come to your store to collect (and spend!) it. This will expose folks who shop in other types of stores, or in other parts of Downtown or the West End to your wonderful business! Therefore, it is a great marketing tool for you to give!

Your business and your Gift Card offer will be listed on our Website and Facebook page, if you let us know right away. Large donations may be featured. Please reply asap to get maximum exposure! Thanks for your generosity!
