For Immediate Release Auburn, NY (3/19/20): During this uncertain time, supporting our fellow residents, local businesses & community stakeholders is an investment in everyone’s future quality of life. Our downtown businesses are at the forefront of our minds as restaurants, breweries, shops, cultural & entertainment venues close to the public with a very unclear future plan.
BID Weekly Drawing for Downtown Employee Gift Certificates BID is running a weekly drawing to directly support employees in need in our District. Each week for a month, we will draw four names for $25 gift certificates that can be redeemed at 40 downtown businesses.
