This was a great year for the Buy Broken Arrow campaign, which had 75 participating merchants and handed out 1.58 million tickets.
During the campaign the Broken Arrow Chamber gave away $1,000 in gift cards to local small businesses and had three lucky winners take home a combined total of $15,000.
Congratulations to Tammy Bailey, Nathan and Elisabeth Hicks, and Shari Holt for being this year’s Buy Broken Arrow winners.
Bailey took home $10,000 and her ticket was from B.A. Tobacco Outlet. She has been a resident of Broken Arrow since 2013 and only had two Buy Broken Arrow tickets. She plans on using the money to pay her bills and pay back all of the people who have helped her through a rough couple of years.
Nathan and Elisabeth Hicks were the $3,000 winners and their ticket was from Lowe’s. They have lived in Broken Arrow for 17 years and have two children. Nathan is a Chamber member and owns a house flipping business called HHH Properties LLC. They plan on using the money to take a family vacation. 
Holt was the $2,000 winner and her ticket was from Mattress Firm. She was there purchasing two twin mattresses for her grandchildren. Shari is a long-time participant of Buy B.A. and plans on using the money on her family this holiday season.
 “It is such a joy to meet the winners and hear their unique stories,” says Jennifer Conway, president and CEO of the Broken Arrow Chamber and EDC. “The Buy B.A. Holiday program does not only benefit those who were able to hold a winning ticket, but it is has a great impact on the economic growth of the community and it highlights the importance of shopping locally, both during the holidays and year-round.
“We were excited to make the changes to the program this year, highlighting our participating merchants on social media and billboards. We also implemented an organic campaign to promote the small businesses who don’t always win due to sheer statistics, through encouraging shoppers to post and tag small participating merchants for a chance to win one of four $250 gift cards.”  
Thank you to this year’s participating merchants and sponsors, including Moody’s Jewelry, Mattress Firm, 98.5 KVOO, Arrow Exterminators, B.A. Flooring and Design, Harmon Insurance, Lamar Outdoor Advertising and Nelson Nissan.  Also, huge thank you to those who participated in Buy B.A. and shopped locally this holiday season.
