Museum gift shop to be cash mobbed

Nov. 28, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A Cash Mob is planned from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Huntington Museum of Art Gift Shop.

The idea behind the Cash Mob is similar in concept to a Flash Mob, with the goal of expressing appreciation for local businesses. People are urged to "mob" the business at the designated time and spend at least $10.

The idea was founded earlier this year by Create Huntington, which collects nominations for businesses to mob and randomly draws a winner.

Create Huntington will host a Cash Mob every Saturday in December, drawing winners every Monday in the month. Winners are posted to the Create Huntington Facebook page that afternoon. The business selected will be "Mobbed" the following Saturday.

Anyone is welcome to nominate a business to be "cash mobbed" and can do so at http://www.createhuntington.com/getinvolved/cash-mob-nominations/. For information on Create Huntington, go to www.createhuntington.com.
