Annual Galentine’s Day event in Coal City area is Feb. 10

COAL CITY – This year marks the fourth year for a Galentine’s Day shopping event in Coal City, Diamond and Carbon Hill. Galentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and friendship with your girlfriends, and this year the Coalers Business Alliance is celebrating from 4-8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 10.

“This event has turned into a fun tradition for so many people. The Grundy Chamber and the Coalers Business Alliance are proud to inspire local support of our businesses,” Chamber President & CEO Christina Van Yperen said.

The Coalers Business Alliance, a business group of the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce & Industry, hosts the event annually to encourage local spending. Participating locations will offer Galentine’s –themed promotions and activities, and anyone wearing red or pink that day will receive a raffle ticket.

The raffle tickets are to be filled out and then taken to the Coal City Public Library District to put in raffle baskets provided by local businesses as prizes. Tickets can be dropped off at the library on Thursday, Feb. 10 4-8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 11 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 12 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Winners will be chosen the following week and notified after. All prizes will have to be picked up from the library.

“Galentine’s Day has proven to be a rewarding event for our customers and the businesses alike,” said The QUEEN BEEs owner Tina Brnca. “We look forward to seeing everyone out again this year for it on Feb. 10.”
