MONROE, CT — March Madness in Monroe, a townwide contest in which residents vote for their favorite businesses over 14 different categories, will run daily on Facebook from Thursday, March 18 through Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
The contest is sponsored by the Monroe Chamber of Commerce, the Economic Development Commission (EDC) and Rownin Associates of Keller Williams Realty.
March Madness in Monroe will allow local businesses to introduce their goods and services to friends, family and their client base, according to Danielle Rownin of Monroe, a Realtor® with Rownin Associates at Keller Williams Realty.
“I was thrilled when the Monroe Chamber of Commerce and EDC approached us to offer their support,” she said. “March Madness in Monroe is the next iteration of our vision.”
Residents will vote on their favorite pizza, coffee and the best burger to name a few categories. Monroe CT Real Estate Connection has a sharable link so it can be posted on any other Facebook page as a means to spread through the entire community.
As residents vote for their favorite business each day, their names are entered into a daily drawing for a $25 gift card to the business they voted for, generously provided by local Monroe service businesses.
“March Madness is a win-win-win for everyone involved,” said Ray Giovanni, president of the Monroe Chamber of Commerce and chairman of the Economic Development Commission. “This is a brilliant opportunity for Monroe’s service businesses to support Monroe’s retail businesses and promote their overall business profile throughout Monroe.”
