Launch Downtown

In partnership with The Launch Company, Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd (ADP). announces “Launch Downtown” to stimulate our downtown economy and give back. Two programs will be launched, one to encourage supporting downtown businesses and one to give back to essential workers.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with the Launch Company to support downtown businesses and essential workers through these fun and interactive programs,” Executive Director Amanda Moser said.

For the next several weeks ADP will be giving away gift cards through the “Launch Local” program to community members who make purchases at downtown shops and restaurants and post on their social media feed about the purchase by tagging @downtownanchoarge and using the hashtag #LaunchLocalANC.

Through a second program, “Launch Essential Workers” ADP will support essential workers by giving away gift cards. Participating community members in essential positions who share posts about the critical work they are doing to their social media and tag @DowntownAnchorage using hashtag #LaunchANCWorkers will be qualified to win.

“Our team wanted to support downtown, small businesses, and essential workers,” said Ben Kellie, CEO of The Launch Company. “This partnership allows a micro-infusion of cash into the downtown economy to support small businesses as well as a recognition of our essential workers.”

A total of $1,000 will be donated between the two programs and each winner will receive a gift card in the amount of $25.00. Gift cards will be purchased from various downtown businesses including restaurants, and shops.
