Breaking Scoop- Local Biz Giveaway for the Class of 2021 and lots of stuff to do in AVL! 3/26/2021

Local Biz Giveaway for Class of 2021!

Y'all, please take a minute and think back to your senior year of High School- crowded hallways full of friends, concerts, sports, prom, and a lot of just hanging out. We can’t change the fact that the pandemic has robbed this year's seniors of these things and more, BUT we can still show them some local Asheville love as they graduate. 

Announcing our Dig ASHEVILLE HIGH/SILSA Local AVL Biz Giveaway! If you're a local business this is a GREAT way to give back to this senior class (and get promoted on social media & radio!) We posted this a few hours ago and have already received donations from The Hop and Twisted Laurel, and also donations for a stress relieving acupuncture appointment, and a Senior Portrait photo session! 

If you're not a business, fear not. You can still purchase Gift Cards directly from your favorite local businesses for the Seniors (a win-win). We will be partnering with our friends at 103.3 Asheville FM as the Class of 2021 does a station takeover for a few hours several days in May. We'll announce the prizes and winners of this Dig Local Giveaway on air!

Put a comment on our Insta post on what you'd like to donate and we'll promote it.
 Or contact Ted directly, [email protected] 828-505-5655
