Chamber announces St. Patty's contest winner

Posted: Thursday, March 24, 2016

The Chamber of Commerce continues its work with local businesses and the community to encourage more people to think locally before traveling out of town for shopping or dining. The ongoing campaign is called Eat. Shop. Live. Do More Huntington.

The Chamber’s newest initiative was in celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day. The Chamber sponsored a four-leaf clover hunt during the days in March that led up to Saint Patrick’s Day. Residents of Huntington County were encouraged to visit participating businesses to locate the four-leaf clover. Once they found it, they were asked to take a selfie and post it to social media with the hashtags of #eatshoplivehtgn and #saintpattysday. Everyone who posted their selfies and hashtagged them correctly were entered to win a $50 Chamber gift check. Deanna Albertson of Huntington was the winner of the contest.

“The goal of this campaign was to get the people of Huntington County excited about shopping and dining locally,” said Randy Warner, chairman of the Chamber’s Community Development/Small Business committee. “The gift check from the Chamber can be used at more than 60 businesses in the county."

Participating businesses in the four-leaf clover search were: Bowers Jewelers, Sears, Viking Express, Beacon Credit Union, Mazie’s Flowers in Markle, Lehman Floor Covering, TrophyCenter Plus, Town and Country Flowers, Huntington Nursery and Florist, JJ’s (all three Huntington locations), Purviance House Bed & Breakfast and East of Chicago Pizza in Warren.
