In theme with what one man calls a global phenomenon, a Louisa County organization is holding a drawing that encourages people to shop local. Dennis Fraise with Louisa Development Group says as part of their Shop Louisa campaign they started Louisa Bucks, currency you can use at businesses throughout the county.

He says people have been filling out forms and submitting them for a drawing their holding today. The grand prize is $500 in Louisa Bucks.

Fraise explains that this is an effort to get people to shop locally and says the drawing adds some extra incentive during the holidays.
