This past Wednesday was a day when many of us celebrated love with sweethearts, family, friends and others we hold dear.
Those who also celebrated by participating in our 2018 Sweetheart Sweepstakes added to their festivities, and we are ready to announce our 18 winners.
Before I share the names of those who did win, I want to thank all the advertisers and generous prize sponsors. This year we received a total of more than 500 valid entries. With that kind of participation, I know that we achieved what we set out to do, and that was to find a creative way to bring extra business to local establishments including merchants, restaurants and service providers.
During the process of prize pick-up and bucket drop-off and pick up, the staff at the Signal Tribune did some Valentine’s Day shopping of our own. That’s what I call practicing what we preach!
For holidays, and every other day of the year, I encourage our readers to remember to shop locally so we can keep our immediate economy stimulated.
Buying online and/or out of the area is status quo for some folks. However, those of us who want to keep our local businesses thriving do our best to spend our dollars in our own neighborhoods. In our area, we can rejoice at the opening of Mother’s Market in Signal Hill, which will take place tomorrow. The addition of this fine store to our locale will certainly help us keep our dollars where they belong— here at home in our own community.Getting back to the subject of Sweetheart Sweepstakes, I hope those who entered enjoyed the process as much as we enjoyed putting it all together. Many of the winners have been contacted by phone; those who were not reached will be surprised to see their names below.
Who won? Below I’ve included their names and the titles of the prize packages that they will be receiving. If you entered or didn’t, and were not a winner this year, try again in 2019!
