To help launch the Downtown Neighborhood Association’s “We ♥ Downtown Elgin” Buy Local campaign, the DNA will debut its first monthly Downtown Cash Mob entitled “Yarn and Soul” at Elgin Knit Works, 8 Douglas Avenue and Soulful Sparrow, 10 Douglas Avenue.
How does a cash mob work? Easy!
1. Show up between 5-6 pm on Thursday, April 25.
2. Invite all of your friends via social media, word of mouth, Pony Express…whatever!
3. All participating Cash “Mobsters” agree to spend a minimum of $20 at either host business (or $10 at both businesses). Mobsters will then receive an entry into a drawing for $20 in Downtown Elgin Gift Certificates! Winner to be announced in May.
Come join the mob in downtown Elgin every month throughout the spring and summer.

Last year the EYPN hosted very successful cash mobs at Elgin Books and SpaceTaste Gallery in downtown Elgin. The DNA is hopeful to partner with the EYPN on future cash mobs as well.
