As a way to spread some holiday cheer and promote Stamford’s local businesses, the Stamford Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Blue Christmas on Thursday, November 30. Blue Christmas is similar to Christmas events done around town in the past just with a different twist.
Blue Christmas will be an event all around town with open houses and holiday activities at participating businesses and, of course, pictures with Santa at the Cowboy Country Museum. Blue Christmas will also kick-off a raffle promotion to shop and support local businesses – similar to Christmas events and promotions previously done.
During the participating businesses’ open house, visitors and customers will have the chance to receive raffle tickets by participating in each businesses raffle ticket incentive. The raffle ticket incentive will be set by the business and could be anything from spending $10 to requesting a quote. The raffle will be for a prize still to be determined plus Stamford Business Bucks, which are donated gift cards from businesses around town.
Raffle tickets will be available at the businesses starting during Blue Christmas through Thursday, December 14. Participants will need to drop off their raffle tickets at the Cowboy Country Museum by Thursday, December 14, to participate in the raffle. The Museum is open Tuesday – Friday from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m.
The drawing for the raffle will be on Friday, December 15 at noon. The winners will be contacted via phone. All participants must put their name and phone number on the back of their tickets to enter the raffle.
“We are excited to see how each business will get involved in Blue Christmas,” Caitlin Richards Stamford Chamber of Commerce executive director said. “We think this event will be a fun holiday activity while promoting our local businesses in Stamford.”
All businesses around town are invited to participate. For more information about how your business can participate, contact Caitlin Richards at 325-773-2411 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone in the community should mark their calendars on November 30 for some holiday cheer and come out to Stamford’s Blue Christmas!
