it's a wonderful window contest
This Holiday season, the Old Worthington Partnership is hosting the second annual “It’s a Wonderful Window Contest”. Downtown Worthington merchants are allowing their store windows to be decorated for the holiday season by local non-profits.
The windows will be covered in paper from the time decorating begins the week of Thanksgiving, until noon on November 27, keeping the window display “secret.” Then, at noon on Sunday, November 27, the start of Holiday Open House, there will be a “Big Reveal” when all the windows will be “unveiled” at the same time.
Shoppers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite window display through a ballot box set up inside each participating store. Each vote is a minimum contribution of $1 ($1=one vote) Shoppers may vote as many times as they want and for as many windows as they want until the contest ends, on December 26. The organization’s window with the most votes (largest contribution) at the end of competition, wins the Bronze Window trophy. More importantly, all the charities will be winners as each charitable organization will keep 100% of all the money placed in their ballot box. Our first year, the contest raised over $4,000 for local charities!
