Drum roll please....

Congratulations to Tina Eden, our GRAND PRIZE winner! Tina’s name was drawn from over 2,300 completed cards that were collected throughout the entire promotion. The grand prize is valued over $650 and includes Vinton Value Dollars as well as goodies from the participating businesses.

The 2,300 cards turned in sets a new record for the promotion. With each card representing $100 spent in the community, it’s a great visual of the impact of shopping local during a very short period of time. We sincerely thank the businesses for having fun with us during the holidays and we thank each and every shopper for supporting our local economy not only during the holidays but year-round!
