How can your business get involved in this egg-citing event?
The number one way to get involved in this event is by supplying prizes. Your businesses prize can be as little or as big as you’d like. We’re looking for the prizes to be a representation of everything downtown Oakville has to offer! The main idea around this event and the prizes are to highlight the downtown and get event attendees into your businesses.
When donating a prize please make sure that your prize will do this for your business: have time limitations (maybe it’s only good for the event day?), it doesn’t have to be entirely free (discounts are a great prize), samples, experiences, the more creative the better!
Examples of prizes your business could donate:
  • BOGO’s
  • Come in for a free cookie
  • Half-priced drinks
Gift Certificates
  • Spa treatment
  • Dinner for two (or one, whatever works best for your business)
  • Nail polish
  • Samples
  • Small items
  • Personal shopping and consultations
  • Wine-tastings
  • Cooking class
  • Art class
Want to get involved but not sure what you can do?
