The Del Ray Business Association has turned supporting local businesses during the coronavirus pandemic into a game.
A bi-weekly bingo series that started today (Monday) fills a 5×5 card with ways to support local businesses in Del Ray. The goal, according to the association, is to “wear a face mask, maintain social distance, and play for the chance to win $50 in Del Ray Dollars,” which are redeemable at some businesses in Del Ray.
Options on the first care include donating canned food to a neighbor, picking up a six-pack of beer from Hops N Shine (3410 Mount Vernon Avenue), and ordering take-out from one of the local restaurants.
A new card will be released every two weeks, the organization said, with the first card running from April 27 to May 10. Anyone who completes five challenges in a row on the board with pictures of their food or retail purchase, challenge, or a screenshot of your receipt can send it to [email protected] and will be entered into a drawing.
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday after the final date on the card. In this case: May 13.
Details about the specific challenges on this week’s bingo card can be found at the Visit Del Ray website.
