Holiday decorating begins on the streets of Old Worthington this week for charity. The Old Worthington Partnership is hosting its third annual “It’s a Wonderful Window Contest,” a partnership with 22 local charities and 20 merchants lining High Street.

The windows of the Old Worthington businesses get a festive make-over by partnering charities. Visitors can delight in the creativity of each window’s unique theme and vote for their favorite. Viewers can vote as often as they want by placing $1 minimum in the voting box, or – new this year – they can vote by text via PayPal. In each window, you'll find a sign that tells you the charity's individual text code. You text that code to 77948. 

The contest runs from Friday, November 10 through Tuesday, December 26. You can vote as much and as often as you'd like. All the proceeds from the contest go directly to the individual non-profit organizations. The charity with the most money raised wins the coveted "window trophy". 

So, head up to our beautiful historic district and check out all the fun window decorations and explore the many wonderful organizations in our community. And most importantly, be sure to shop and dine locally this holiday season!

Thanks to all these businesses for participating in our contest!
