March 1st marks the end of Black History Month, but one Acadiana group is hoping to keep Black-owned businesses at the top of people's minds as we transition into the spring.
They plan to do this with a friendly game of bingo.
"Shop Blacklisted" is preparing to launch a month-long challenge called #BlacklistedBingo, in the hopes of encouraging residents to support local Black-owned businesses through out the month of March.
To do this, they are promising the chance to win up to $500 cash and gift certificates.
Anyone can pick up a bingo card from a participating business, or download from the event's website.
Tasks can range from purchasing breakfast at a restaurant, spending $10 dollars at a shop, or even engaging with a business on Facebook.
The game starts March 15th and will run through April 16th.
