The Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce completed its seven-week Pledge Local Challenge on July 31 and held the grand prize drawing for $500 in Chamber Bucks today. Congratulations to grand prize drawing winner, Mandi Hicks!
In total, the Challenge drew 501 people to become Pledge Local Champions with $39,360 in Chamber Bucks spent at local businesses. Chamber Bucks, a gift certificate program provided by the Chamber, can be redeemed at most Sheridan County businesses and are a great way to encourage shopping locally. Chamber Bucks can be purchased year-round at the Chamber Office.
The Chamber kicked off the Pledge Local Challenge on June 15. During the Challenge, the community was invited to “Take the Pledge” to become a Pledge Local Champion. The Challenge had two parts:
1. Purchase and spend at least $50 in Chamber Bucks between June 15 and July 31.
2. Challenge at least two friends, family members or co-workers to also become Pledge Local Champions.
Each week, every new person who took the pledge during that week was entered into a drawing for $100 in Chamber Bucks. All Pledge Local Champions were entered into the grand prize drawing.
The purpose of the Challenge was to help stimulate the local economy by injecting money directly into the community, spread the word about the importance of supporting local businesses and create excitement and positivity for the Sheridan County community.
