Shop local and join St. Charles Chamber's holiday drawing for prizes
On Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28, be sure to stop in at local stores and restaurants. Spend local this holiday season to win the holiday drawing contest.
This new campaign supports St. Charles Chamber of Commerce Small Businesses. The community is encouraged to "Spend Local, Support Local and Gift Local." Save your receipts for a chance to win up to $500, starting Small Business Saturday Nov. 28 to Dec. 26.
The first prize is up to $500, second prize is up to $250 and third prize is up to $100. The actual prize award will be a St. Charles Chamber gift card which can be used at any member establishment. The value of the prize will be based on the actual dollar amount spent at our local small business members, up to the maximum prize amount.
To be submitted in the drawing, members of the public are asked to drop off their receipts, from small businesses members, to the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce, 216 Riverside Ave., by Jan. 11.
Winners will be pulled and announced on Jan. 18. All receipts must be placed in one envelope for drawing and include their name, phone number and email clearly written on the outside of the envelope.
Receipts must be dated between Nov. 28 to Dec. 26. Eligible receipts will be verified, per contest requirements, to be entered into drawing. Small business is defined as locally owned and managed, as determined by the St. Charles Chamber.
Now more than ever, local businesses need your support.
