As a way to support the small businesses in our amazing town, a resident suggested we offer a $1 ticket each week, and all money collected each week would be used to purchase gift certificates at randomly selected stores in town. A group of us got together and made this idea happen!
We surveyed the town and are including over 325 stores – Restaurants, Retail Stores, and Salons. Each week our system will randomly select 1 store for every $1,250 of tickets sold. We will buy 20x $50 gift certificates from that store ($1000 worth) and donate the other $250 (20% of ticket sales) distributed equally to 4 food banks in town.
We hope this drives even more business to our beloved RVC shops!!
