'Buy Local' Fundraiser in Lynchburg Sunday

Lynchburg, VA - You can help support the buy local campaign in Lynchburg this weekend.

This Sunday, head out to the Academy of Fine Arts Theater to check out the "Meet Me in Lynchburg" fundraiser. It has everything: a five course dinner, a silent auction, concert and even carriage rides.

The proceeds will help get commercials, posters and other promotions. And organizers say you'll see where your money goes.

"People really need to understand what buy local means. Don't complain about the pothole in front of your apartment complex when you buy everything on," said Laurie Gulluscio, director of marketing for the Retail Merchants Association.

The fundraiser starts at 4 p.m.

The deadline to buy tickets is Thursday. You can buy tickets here.
