POWELLS POINT, NC, October 06, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Currituck County residents were on hand at Sanctuary Vineyards last month and found out that buying local really does pay off. The Buy Local 3rd quarter contest drawing at Sanctuary Vineyards was a big success with 4 Currituck County residents taking home a combined total of almost $3,000 in prizes, all for supporting Currituck County by buying local.
The Grand Prize winner is Patsy Howard, who went home for almost $1,200 in prizes for buying local. Howard won the Whalehead package, which includes $500 worth of prizes including a "Friends of Whalehead" membership, dinner, and wine. Howard also won a Wild Horse Adventure Tours tour for four, a stay at The Inn at Corolla Light, and several other prizes including steaks, gift cards and more.
Currituck County's Second Prize Winner is Linda Rowe who won almost $1,000 in prizes for buying local! Rowe won several services from The Twiford Law Firm, P.C. worth around $850. She will also be sleeping easy as the winner of a Memory Foam Pillow from Mattress Direct, and gift certificates to Griggs Lumber Company and Currituck BBQ.
More Currituck County residents walked away with prizes for buying local like Third Prize Winner Penny Britt, who won around $650 in prizes for buying local from businesses like Southern Charm Cleaning & Specialty Services, LLC, E. L. Miller, III & Sons, and Ultimate Look Beauty Salon. Buy Local also gave away a Currituck County cooler packed with goodies valued at $75.00 to Dorothy Hocutt.
Buy Local thanks all Currituck County businesses who graciously donated prizes to the Buy Local contest. Buy Local also thanks Currituck County residents for buying local and supporting the local economy. Buying local really does make a difference, and each time Currituck County residents make buying local a priority, that is more money that goes back to the community in the form of services.
The Buy Local 4th quarter contest is now underway and Currituck County residents can enter anytime between now and December 31st. All residents of Currituck County are invited to send 5 receipts or take 5 pictures at of you buying local at area businesses and mail them to Buy Local. Buying local gives you the chance to win some great prizes so visit the Buy Local Currituck website (www.buylocalcurrituck.com) and discover just how easy it is to support the community and win.
When citizens buy local, they can help revive Currituck's economy. In turn, locally-owned and operated businesses continually pump hard-earned dollars back into the local economy by way of taxes, payrolls and purchases. Remittances from the state for sales, gas and other taxes will increase. This means more money for schools, services, law enforcement, emergency services, and new jobs in our community.---
