50 by 10 challenge

Make your Mama proud with the $50 by 5/10 challenge!

Our local businesses are a part of what makes our community so special. When you spend money locally, you make a big difference in the lives of folks right here in our community. Every purchase you make with a local vendor keeps more money locally. When you ‘vote’ with your dollars those dollars make a difference, in helping a local business hire more employees, investing in our communities future. Small businesses donate more to charity events and fundraisers, I mean c’mon Jeff Bezos sure isn’t going to sponsor your kids ball team. If only half of our 70,000 residents spent $50 locally, we’d pump $1.75 million back into our local economy!

To celebrate our local businesses we’ve launched 50 to 10! As a locally owned and small business ourselves we are challenging our listeners to spend $50 locally by May 10th to help support small business and in turn help our community. Thanks to our local partners in is challenge: Lake Missoula Tea CompanyThe AdvocatesLolo DrugAlpine TouchMood BoutiqueBernice’s Bakery, and The Bitterroot Breakfast Bus
