About 75 ticket holders who participated in Sunnyside Shines’ recent small-business promotion are in the draw to win a flat screen TV Wednesday night.
The draw, which will take place at Bliss Street Station, follows the marketing campaign run by Sunnyside Shines in May—where 33 local businesses offered discounts every Thursday to shoppers and bar/restaurant goers. The promotion was called ‘Hoppin Thursdays’.
As part of the marketing effort, individuals who went to 5 participating businesses or more during the month—and got their ‘Hoppin Thursdays’ card’s stamped– went in the draw for prizes.
Liz Taylor, a bartender at Bliss Street Station, said the bar/restaurant is pleased to host the event. “I think we should all give back to the neighborhood and support our local businesses.”
First prize is a flat screen TV valued at $400; second prize, a iPad Mini valued at $350; and third prize, a Kindle Fire worth $150.
The event kicks off at 7 pm at Bliss Street Station, located at 47-02 Greenpoint Avenue, and there will be drinks as well as prizes.
