Help Keep Our Foster-Powell Businesses Alive

Looking for this week’s raffle?

For only $5

You could win $50 to spend at a local business!

“But how??” you ask! Read on to find out more!

At the April general meeting of the Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association, we allocated $2,000 to start a program that will help our neighborhood businesses. Many of these businesses are owned by and employ your neighbors living right here in Foster-Powell.

How does it work?

  • The FPNA purchases FULL-PRICED gift certificates from local retailers each in the amount of $50.
  • Every week we raffle off five of those gift cards. We will group the gift certificates together, each one representing a different type of business, such as 1 retailer, 1 restaurant, 1 salon/stylist, 1 tattoo studio, 1 service, etc. There will be a mix of businesses that are currently still open during the pandemic as well as those that will hopefully re-open in the future.
  • Each gift certificate is to be raffled off individually and each raffle ticket cost $5 (or 7 tickets for $25 or 15 tickets for $45). The more you buy, the better your chances of winning!

Why are we doing this?

These businesses are an important part of the fabric of this great neighborhood. They have supported neighbors and the neighborhood association in the past. Let’s get together to help them NOW so they are around to support us all in the future. Working together we can make a difference.

Let’s start going from this —
