The Lake Anna Business Partnership (LABP) will host its lake-wide Christmas open house Nov. 23 through Dec. 14.
“The purpose of the annual event is to encourage residents and seasonal visitors to shop locally,” said LABP President Jeff Heidig. “We want to bring people together to enjoy the holiday season and help all of our businesses.”
The Christmas open house will encourage shoppers to visit local merchants and businesses with a unique contest.
Each time a customer visits a participating business (no purchase required), they receive an entry ticket that goes into a beautifully wrapped, prominently displayed collection box. A drawing for three cash prizes of $300, $200 and $100 will be held on Dec. 17, at the LABP’s last meeting of 2013. Winners need not be present.
A Christmas Decoration Contest, sponsored by Lake Anna Life Magazine, will also be held among participating businesses. All holiday decorations will be judged and the winner will receive an advertising credit for the 2014 edition of Lake Anna Life Magazine. The winner will also be declared Dec. 17.
