Downtown Gives coupon books go on sale Friday

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - The Downtown Gives coupon books feature 27 participating restaurants, retailers and specialty shops in Downtown Sioux Falls. The books go on sale Friday and will continue to be sold through December. The coupons don't expire until March 31st, 2017.

The books are $15 each. This year, the proceeds raised from the books will go towards the Bishop Dudley Hospitality House. It is an emergency shelter for the homeless who need help in the daytime or overnight. The facility is within walking distance of several agencies that also provide programs for the needy.

Over the past three years that Downtown Sioux Falls Inc. has been doing this charity, they have raised more than $15,300 for local non-profits.

The organization is doing a new give away to go along with the coupon books this year. Each person who buys a book will have the opportunity to win a $200 gift card to Duluth Trading Company. In order to be entered into the contest, people need to fill out the registration card in the back of the coupon book and give it to the cashier where the book was purchased or drop it off at the DTSF office. It is located at 230 South Phillips Avenue in Suite 102. The winner will be drawn on Friday, December 9th.
