Shop for the Cause winner announced
Michelle Viera of Hudson, N.H. was the lucky winner of a $50 gift certificate and a bicycle at the first annual Shop For the Cause event to benefit P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center on Sept. 22.
Forty area merchants participated by pledging a portion of their sales from the day to P.A.W.S. and shoppers were encouraged to show their appreciation by shopping at the businesses. Cards were distributed to shoppers and everyone who visited a minimum of 10 stores was entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to the business of their choice and a three-speed bicycle donated by Midcoast Adventure Rentals. Viera chose the Smiling Cow for her $50 gift certificate.
