$500 Christmas Bingo Winner

leave a comment »

Alice Stevens was the big winner in our Christmas Bingo shopping promotion.  Mrs. Stevens won $500 in ChamberBucks by shopping at local Chamber businesses: Speeds Apple Market, Anderson Pharmacy (twice) and First National Bank.  Ord Area Christmas Bingo participants were eligible if they visited a Chamber business listed on their bingo sheet and won a bingo.

Congrats Alice and to our participants, thank you!! Buying local is not only important, it’s essential to the vitality of our community.  Buying locally, especially during the holidays, produces measurable benefits here at home.  Locally-owned businesses return an average of 75% to 80% of each dollar to their community and that dollar will return up to five times that amount within the Ord area.

Not convinced?  We’ve blogged before on the impact of buying locally here, here, here and here.

Please think twice before you spend your Ord-earned dollars in Grand Island or Kearney.
