Buy Alexandria—Enter the Our Dollars Count Sweepstakes 

City of Alexandria Virginia Mayor William D. Euille invites the Alexandria community to participate in the Buy Alexandria: Our Dollars Count Sweepstakes. The Buy Alexandria: Our Dollars Count initiative, successfully launched in November 2008, encourages Alexandrians to shop, dine, entertain and buy essentials in Alexandria to strengthen the local economy. The program is a collaboration of the City of Alexandria, the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce, the Alexandria Convention & Visitors Association, the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership, and the Alexandria Small Business Development Center.

Now, to help local business thrives and continue to encourage spending in Alexandria during these difficult economic times, Alexandria residents and businesses are invited to participate in the Buy Alexandria: Our Dollars Count Sweepstakes:

• Beginning April 1, 2009, each customer who completes a purchase at a participating Buy Alexandria: Our Dollars Count Sweepstakes store or restaurant will receive a Buy Alexandria game card.

• Shoppers and diners who received game cards will be eligible to register in the sweepstakes by entering the access code on the back of the game card at

• On the first day of each month—May through September—five Buy Alexandria sweepstakes registrants will be awarded a $100 gift card, selected by a random drawing. Players may enter as many game cards that they are given. Winning game cards must be surrendered to receive the prize.

“Participation in the sweepstakes easy—simply by doing your shopping, going out to dinner and buying the basics here in Alexandria, you can have a chance at winning $100,” said Mayor Euille. “Keeping your business here helps to sustain our local businesses and encourage spending in Alexandria, directly benefiting the City’s tax base. Remember—our dollars count. When you spend here, everyone benefits.”
