MainStreet Libertyville has officially launched a raffle event that will reward six lucky winners with a treasure trove of $2,650 in gift cards while aiding downtown businesses impacted by the Illinois COVID-19 mandatory closures.
More than 50 participating downtown retailers, restaurants and salons have contributed $300 in gift cards, creating big prizes for six lucky winners. Winners can redeem the gift cards beginning on January 1, 2021.
Proceeds from the raffle will be split equally between the participating businesses, allowing businesses to benefit from an influx of cash while recovering from the financial effects of business closures and operational changes due to COVID-19.
“We’re very excited to be able to help the downtown businesses in this manner and see the community continue to rally in support of small businesses,” said Fred Kestler, MainStreet Libertyville’s Past Chairman.
Raffle tickets are available for purchase online for $10 at the MainStreet Libertyville website (https://mainstreetlibertyville.org/member/ticket-for-small-business-relief-raffle/). Individuals must be 18 years or older to participate.
Raffle tickets will be sold through July 3, 2020 at 5:00 p.m., and the winning tickets will be drawn on July 4, 2020, at a time and location to be announced.
