What better way to support local small businesses than with gift cards?
That’s what Emily and Ryan Groll thought the other day. Rather than giving money or gifts to the Sprout staff for the holidays, they decided that their business, Sprout, would purchase thousands of dollars worth of gift cards from local businesses in the hospitality sector in Talbot County. And those cards would be given away as part of a Sprout staff Zoom auction.
Ryan notes that “a little Jeopardy mixed in and an exciting ‘seek and show’ for additional prizes” is perfect in having fun and supporting the hard-hit community businesses all the same time.
