Cindy McDonald, executive director of Sapulpa Main Street, and Suzanne Shirey, president of Sapulpa Chamber of Commerce, are excited to announce the $10,000 winner of Sapulpa’s Christmas Cash Bash on December 17.
The holidays are here! What better way to get in the spirit than a stroll downtown, a Christmas parade and the hope you could win some big money? Sapulpa’s small town charm is bigger than ever as the Sapulpa Chamber of Commerce and Sapulpa Main Street have teamed up to fill the season with community celebrations and business promotions, ensuring a joyful holiday and prosperous new year for all.
As families and friends get together for parties and gifts, we also find ourselves at crowded stores with long lines. One way to beat the stress and traffic is to shop closer to home. Nearly everything offered by stores in Tulsa can be found in Sapulpa, so why not save time, gas and a little sanity while helping your own community? By shopping in Sapulpa, the sales tax revenue helps the city operate and make community improvements. Also, when you shop near home you are supporting your neighbors who own and work in these stores. Everyone wins when we shop local. And, when you shop at businesses participating in the Christmas Cash Bash, you could win $10,000.
Formerly known as the Jingle Bell Sweepstakes, the Christmas Cash Bash has been a Sapulpa shopping tradition for 15 years. Beginning Saturday, November 2 and continuing until 6 p.m. on Monday, December 16, shoppers may obtain tickets at participating businesses. Customers earn a ticket for every $10 spent at a business. On Tuesday, December 17, one winning ticket will be drawn from those given out by retailers for a $10,000 prize. There will be smaller cash prizes awarded too, and winners do not have to be present to claim their prize. The event will feature a live remote by K95.5 FM. Premiere sponsor of the Christmas Cash Bash campaign is Bob Hurley GMC.
“We have over 70 participating businesses this year,” says Suzanne Shirey, president of the Sapulpa Chamber of Commerce. “We are excited about expanding the promotion to the full community and including more merchants.”
Saturday, November 2 is when Sapulpa officially kicks off the Christmas season, with the Christmas Cash Bash coinciding with the Downtown Christmas Open House. Bring the whole family downtown to celebrate as businesses showcase their decorations, new merchandise and much more.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, November 21 (the week before Thanksgiving), for Lights On. This special celebration at the Court House gazebo will feature lots of twinkling lights, music and plenty of Christmas cheer.
If you haven’t finished shopping for everyone on your list by December, no need to worry. The Small Town, Big Christmas Holiday Stroll will offer three evening opportunities to combine family fun with shopping local. On Thursdays (December 5, 12 and 19), Dewey Street will be lined with carolers, carriage rides and perhaps feature an appearance by Santa himself. Businesses will be open until 8 p.m. these Thursdays to accommodate your gift shopping. Don’t forget about those Christmas Cash Bash tickets!
On Saturday, December 14, Sapulpa’s Christmas Parade will wind throughout downtown. Once again sponsored by Waste Management, this year’s theme is “Believe in the Magic of Christmas.” The parade begins at 6 p.m., so be sure to find a cozy spot in advance.
With so much going on in Sapulpa, from the Christmas Cash Bash to the Christmas Parade, families and shoppers should find ample opportunities to celebrate and embrace their community. And, remember, when you shop local, you not only help your city, but increase your chances to win $10,000.
