Don’t miss the Box Blitz!

Box Blitz is an Instagram-driven giveaway designed to create excitement and anticipation in the community (among attendees and non-attendees alike) for the SchoolPower Gala. Giveaway runs the week of Feb 14-18. Five retailers and restaurants will be giving out the boxes for the five days of the week. The first five people to each location get a box…filled with a special surprise (discount coupon, gift card or item).
