Outer Banks, North Carolina (PressExposure) September 06, 2012 -- Buy Local Currituck is excited to announce that the drawing for the buy local contest is coming up on September 13th. This quarter the contest will be held during Acoustic Sunset on the North Lawn of The Cotton Gin in Jarvisburg. The event starts September 13th at 5:00 p.m. Currituck County residents are invited to join in the fun, enjoy and buy local produce, sample delicious local wines, and more!
Currituck County officials are happy to announce that the 3rd quarter prizes total almost $3,000. Buy Local thanks all local residents who buy local produce, goods, and products for helping to keep money residents have spent in Currituck County. When residents buy local produce, or shop at local retail, it allows locally-owned and operated businesses to pump hard-earned dollars back into the local economy by way of taxes, payrolls and purchases. This means more money for schools, services, law enforcement, emergency services, and more.
The Buy Local contest is Currituck County's way to say thanks to cities for supporting local business by rewarding them with some great prizes all at a fun event. Each quarter residents are asked to collect five receipts or take five photos of them supporting local businesses. Some buy local produce, others shop at great Currituck County retailers, or enjoy a night out at one of Currituck's fine restaurants.
Acoustic Sunset will also feature great music by the Wilder Brothers, and will happen, rain or shine! Currituck County thanks our sponsor, Sanctuary Vineyards, for their support. Acoustic Sunset is a great local weekly event that features some very talented music, and Buy Local is happy to be a part of the fun! So be sure come to the event on Thursday, September 13th, starting at 5:00 p.m. and enjoy a Currituck County Vineyard experience and find out who wins the prizes.
If any Currituck County resident missed out on the 3rd quarter contest, remember that the 4th quarter contest is underway! There are few limits on where to shop, as long as the business is a part of Buy Local Currituck County.
