Oakland County Employee Prizes

"Small Business Saturday is a wonderful way to support our local businesses, do a little shopping and have a chance at a pretty nice payday, just for doing something many of us will be doing anyway," Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson said. "Who couldn't use some extra cash around the holidays?"

The employee prizes will be awarded in early December 7th at the County Christmas Party.

There are three ways to enter:


*A Small Business is defined, for this contest, as an independently owned and operated, legal, brick and mortar business located in Oakland County – not a big box, or large chain outlet.

**Oakland County Employees and Contractors are not eligible for a similar $5,000 shopper contest being conducted for the public.
