Lion Night is an upcoming event for UNA students and their parents to become aware of #DowntownFlorence businesses in a fun and interactive way! Students and their parents have an opportunity to win a weekend getaway in downtown Florence filled with gift certificates and more fun surprises!
How it works:
You will receive a bingo card along with a map at the beginning of the night. You will then visit all participating businesses to receive a sticker on that business’s bingo slot. For every bingo you get, you enter to win a weekend getaway! But wait, there’s more! If you make a purchase at any of the participating businesses, you get a gold star. For every gold star you get, that’s another entry for a chance to win a weekend getaway! You have from 4pm to 7pm to visit all participating businesses and return your bingo card to the registration tent.
