Both established and brand new local businesses will gather at Giovanni's Tuesday night for Winnebago Buy Local's 2013 Kickoff Celebration.
WBL is a group of locally-owned businesses that work toward transforming the local economy through green jobs, sustainable industries, and buying local first. Over 115 businesses have joined in the past year.
The 2013 Kickoff Celebration will celebrate WBL's work over the last two years and the beginning of a new year in the Rockford community.
The event is for local, un-franchised, non-national, and unique to Winnebago County businesses. To find more on the event and to RSVP, visit the event's Facebook page here.
