    What is Hometown Holiday Hurrah?

    Hometown Holiday Hurrah is a promotional event put on by the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance to encourage Laramie residents to shop locally during the holiday season. The Laramie Chamber Business Alliance encourages consumers to stay in town and shop for the holidays with rewarding incentives. What better way to shop than to receive tickets for a drawing where you could possibly win up to $3,000 in Jingle Bucks to spend at participating businesses?! Laramie, and the surrounding areas, have a ton of unique and native shops and businesses. Why not take advantage of finding something special locally?

    Why shop local for the Holidays?

    Shopping local doesn’t only help the local businesses to thrive and stimulate the local economy, but it also helps sustain and create local jobs. When you shop in your own town, you are able to buy products or goods from local craftsmen, which are unique options that you may not find in other stores or even other states. Laramie shops have a lot to offer when it comes to Wyoming made items and gifts. Shopping local saves you money on gas and travel time. By shopping local, you get to meet the owners of the stores and have a much better overall experience. So this holiday season save money and possibly earn money by shopping local!

    How to win jingle bucks

    If you would like the chance to win jingle bucks you can start visiting participating businesses the first weekend in November. When given a ticket (or more) for the drawing, fill it out and give that portion to the business while keeping the other half. Be sure to keep your tickets in a safe spot until the first drawing Saturday, November 21st. In order to win, you must be at a participating business at the time of the drawing listening to the live broadcast. If your ticket number is drawn, the business will take care of calling the ‘Winning Ticket Hotline’. Don’t be discouraged if you do not win this time because your tickets will still have the opportunity to be drawn at the next two drawings on December 5th and December 19th. You can enter as many tickets into the drawing as you obtain. On the dates of the drawings we will collect all of the tickets from the businesses. Be sure to continue to visit these businesses and get more tickets!

    If you are a business interested in being a participant or sponsor, you can call Josie Molloy at 307-745-7339 or email her at
