The Erie Community Foundation Helping Today gran t placed $10,000 down, and once the reserve money is gone, the sale will end.
According to Events manager Dave Tamulonis, "This is our first time running a sale with a100%, buy-one-get-one match, shopping local is more important this year than ever, and we wanted to do something big. The campaign has the potential to put $20,000 back into the economy of Downtown Erie and help get our businesses through a tough holiday season."
