Holiday Raffle to Support Local Businesses
We are working with Alderman Matt O’Shea’s office and our neighboring business associations to offer you the opportunity to enter a raffle. This raffle is modeled after the one held last spring and facilitated by S & T Provisions in Mt. Greenwood. Thirty businesses participated, and raffle ticket sales generated a prize pool of $9,000.
This raffle will follow the same format S&T used, and tickets will be sold online only. To participate, a business must donate a $300 gift card/certificate and then agree to sell 100 raffle tickets online. Only businesses that meet these requirements can split the proceeds from the raffle ticket sales.
When people purchase raffle tickets, they will be able to credit their sale to the business of their choice. For example, if someone purchases 10 tickets and credits Southtown Health Foods, that number will be added to Southtown’s tally of ticket sales. It is my understanding that the raffle tickets will be $10 each.
The raffle begins on Small Business Saturday, November 28, 2020, and ends on December 20, 2020.
You must complete the attached form and submit it by 5 pm on Monday, October 26, 2020 to be considered for the raffle. The committee will not be able to accept late forms. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
