Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
Main Street Business Improvement Association (MSBIA) is working hard to organize its 14th Annual Summer SOULstice event on June 22 and working to raise money for Heal the Bay. To join in and support the cause, many businesses will offer a 10% discount on their products and services to people who have purchased a $10 wristband throughout the month of June.
On sale at T-Mobile, 220 Fitness, Areal, hip’tique, RAWvolution, and Main Street’s table at the Sunday Farmer’s Market, the wristband will allow its purchasers to enjoy a 10% discount at participating locations.
Mobile company At the Pool, who donated the wristbands, is launching an interactive location-based app called Yeti. It will be the official app of Summer SOULstice, and can be found at http://yeti.ai. Instantly connect with the Main Street community by downloading Yeti.
The annual event, on June 22nd, features live music and sidewalk sales. “It’s a community event,” says Gary Gordon, MSBIA Executive Director. “It’s just a great way to celebrate Main Street, and a beautiful Sunday in Southern California. And this year, it’s also about helping Heal the Bay,” he continued.
Funds for the SOULstice come from individual Main Street businesses, sponsors, and City of Santa Monica grants. Donations to MSBIA for this project are not tax deductible even though a portion goes towards Heal the Bay.
The 14th Annual Main Street Summer SOULstice is produced by the MSBIA and co-produced by the City of Santa Monica’s ‘Buy Local’ Campaign.
