Put your money where your heart is this holiday season!

Kicking off on Small Business Saturday, this virtual contest encourages individuals to support all Elmhurst businesses.


How do you participate? Take a photo showing how you or a family member are loving local by supporting Elmhurst businesses. Photos are then emailed to by 10 p.m. that night for a chance to win a daily prize.

The contest runs daily from Nov. 28 to Dec. 21. Participants can enter new pictures every day for a chance to win one of two daily prizes -- a $50 gift card to the Elmhurst small business retailer, entertainment venue, service provider, or restaurant/bar of their choice.

Each day, the city will be featuring a different local business segment on our social media pages to remind you of all the ways you can support local. Grand prize drawings will take place on Dec. 21-23; all participants from throughout the contest will be entered to win gift packages valued at approximately $250 in local gift cards and merchandise!

To enter, participants must email photos showing their local support and identify themselves and the businesses showcased in the image. Winners will be asked to choose three Elmhurst small business retailers, entertainment venues, service providers, or restaurants from which they wish to win a gift card. Winners may also choose a City Centre gift card.

Proof of local purchase will be requested when winners are selected. Drawings will take place the business day following entry; winners will be notified within 72-hours on how/when they may claim their prize. The city reserves the right to use any/all winning photos for local marketing and promotional purposes.
