While this website is only a small part of that initiative, it is certainly the central hub. This is where consumers and businesses alike may learn more, find deals, and register as a sponsor.

Because we know how important this initiative is to the community and also have the resources to bring it to life, we are providing this opportunity and it’s benefits for free to business owners. That means, every sponsor will reap the benefits of this marketing triad including 7 radio stations, this website, and a social media presence promoting the whole initiative, and by extension your business.
