Thanks to all who participated in our first-ever "Shop Local Lake Hopatcong" promotion for the month of July 2013!
Congrats to Shop Local Grand Prize winner Melinda Miller of Hopatcong!!
Many thanks to the 75 businesses and hundreds of shoppers who made the LHF Shop Local promotion such a success!
And congrats to our winners: Melinda Miller won the grand prize (a new kayak from Bob's Canoes and Kayaks, valued at $575) Carol Kitchin won first prize ($250 in gift cards to Alice's, the Main Lake Market, and the Lake Hopatcong Golf Club) Esther Poulsen won second prize ($100 to the Bridge Marina gas dock)
In case you missed it, 75 local businesses offered special discounts, coupons, or giveaways to participating shoppers during the month of July (the list of participating businesses is below). Shoppers carried cards that they got stamped at each business they went to -- the more stamps they received, the more prizes they were eligible for. Participants mailed in their cards or dropped them off at the LHF office. The Lake Hopatcong Foundation drew the winners live on the ThisIsYourLake.org webcam on Friday, August 9.
We want residents in all four towns to think of the lake as their "downtown," and the entire area to feel like a cohesive community. Here's hoping this promotion helped!
Thanks again to those who participated -- we're looking forward to doing it again in July 2014! And many thanks to our staff and the excellent team of volunteers who put this promotion together!
