We promote your business, you give back.
September 9th, 10th and 11th
Join the community of local businesses for this year’s Shop & Dine United Weekend! Shop & Dine United is a special weekend event of shopping and dining and is an opportunity for local businesses to give back by pledging to donate to United Way of the Coastal Empire.
You decide what kind of donation works best for your business! It can be proceeds from a specialty item, a percentage of sales from the event, or something else creative. In return, United Way will provide you with signage and promote the event and your business on social media and more.
Join the ranks!
