ST. PATRICK’S DAY EVENT
“WEARIN’ OF THE GREEN”
in NW Portland
This is a social media based photo contest. Encourage your customers to take pictures in or by your store – of course, they must be wearing green. They will use the hashtag #pinchmePDX for their submissions on Twitter, Instagram and FaceBook. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative pictures. Just to add a little friendly competition, the business appearing in the most pictures will receive the BLARNEY STONE AWARD. This is an opportunity for each store to add a special promotion to encourage people to come to their store. Give us the information and we will put it on our social media. Postings are free to members and a small fee for non-members, To register and receive more information, please contact Pat Fiedler email@example.com
