We’ve gotten a lot of questions, mainly “What is Pickin’ FOR a Purpose?” on our Spring in St. Marys Poster, so I’m excited to get to share this great info with you!
Many of you don’t know the reason that we chose the charming town of St. Marys, GA last year for Rustapalooza. Sure it’s GORGEOUS, but we also wanted to help bring awareness to just how fabulous this historic small town is, and to help promote it’s downtown merchants as well and by bringing people that may have never visited sweet St. Marys, and we accomplished our goal!
PICKIN’ FOR A PURPOSE combines a few great things! ONE, you all LOVE to shop EARLY, so this is Early, Early shopping even before we open on Saturday. TWO, we the Rustapalooza Family, love to find creative ways to give back to our community and the proceeds of these ticket sales for you getting to shop early goes back to a Special Project that is designed for development, right here in the down town St. Marys Community. The project is selected and hosted by the St. Marys Main Street and their Downtown Development Authority. THREE, this partnership leaves a lasting impact on the City of St. Marys by you the shopper, from us the event producer, to the local residents and small businesses.
Be sure to stay tuned, we’ll be revealing the project in the next few weeks!
So sure, it costs a little more to shop on Friday, but that Pickin’ FOR a Purpose $20 ticket goes to a GREAT CAUSE!
