Colleyville Receipt Race collects more than 21,000 Colleyville business receipts
Participating Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District parent teacher associations collected 21,339 receipts from Colleyville businesses as part of an economic development initiative.
The City of Colleyville hosted the Colleyville Receipt Race this April, which asked GCISD PTAs to collect receipts from Colleyville businesses with the groups that turned in the most receipts receiving prize money from the City.
The Mayor and Council recognized the schools that turned in the most receipts at the May 15 City Council meeting. Out of the 11 schools that participated, Heritage Middle School came out on top with 6,753 receipts, Bransford Elementary School collected 5,053 receipts, and Heritage Elementary School had 2,340 receipts. The City awarded the schools $5,000, $3,000 and $1,000 respectively.
“I want to thank everyone that participated in Q2P,” Mayor Richard Newton said.
City staff estimates the receipts collected by the community amount to more than $2 million in local business.
This program was part of the Quarter 2 Promotion program. Earlier this year the city ran the Quarter 1 Promotion program, which offered up to $1,000 in advertising grant money to businesses in the SH26 construction corridor. City staff continues to develop the Quarter 3 Promotion, which plans to encourage Colleyville residents to shop local.
