New leader in Think Local race
A $100 check donated by Bay Federal Credit Union moved into the top spot of the Great Money Race sponsored by Think Local First County of Santa Cruz, generating $1,300.
Shopper's Corner spent this check at The Buttery, which spent it at Sockshop and Shoe Company.
Close behind is the $100 check donated by Santa Cruz County Employees Credit Union, generating $1,217 after Bookshop Santa Cruz spent it at Ferrari Florist.
The other three $100 checks are at Cruzio, Carpo's and Penny Ice Creamery.
The race, which started Nov. 1 and ends Nov. 30, aims to show how much business can be generated by spending $500 at any of the 640 businesses that are members of Think Local First. That $500 has generated $5,309 and just 10 days remain.
