We’re partnering with some great businesses for another mystery box give away! This time, there will be two mystery boxes! Friday March 8th is International Women’s Day, and we want to celebrate by supporting women-owned, and partner-owned, businesses in Auburn!
According to Disabled American Veterans, “March is National Women’s History Month, but its roots go back to March 8, 1857, when women from New York City factories staged a protest over working conditions. International Women’s Day was first observed in 1909, and in 1981 Congress established National Women’s History Week to be commemorated the second week of March. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since Congress has passed a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the President has issued a proclamation.”

But there are two boxes, right?
Yes, there are two boxes! We have a mystery box as a raffle for those who patronize the wonderful women-owned businesses of Auburn, and we also have a mystery box for the hardworking women business owners.
When you post your photos, you are entering you and the business each into a raffle. The best part is you do not have to pick just one business: patronize as many women-owned businesses as possible. Each photo is an entry into the raffle!
