Asian History for the Holidays event kicked off in Blair County today to prepare for the holiday season, of course. This event was started last year as a way to promote local shopping, support small businesses and also support the Baker Mansion Museum.
Every Monday, a new post is uploaded to Facebook, and people who like and share the post on their own Facebook page are entered into a weekly prize, drawing in the first drawing period and today. All those who have won a prize, there’ll be two chances or two winners a week will be entered into a grand prize drawing, which will be on New Year’s Eve.
“We will do a Facebook Live broadcast here at the Baker Mansion and they will win the big prize. And that will be announced closer to the date.”
What a cool idea, and Baker Mansion is registered with Amazon Smile, and the museum runs entirely on grants and revenue that’s generated from special events like this and donations from the community.
