517 Day of Giveaways

A day of giveaways to celebrate 5/17!

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, you’ve probably spent more time in your own backyard than you care to admit. But honestly, it’s a good thing. Because you wanted to keep your family safe, you researched outdoor activities in Lansing to enjoy. You got to check out places like the Lansing River Trail, the horticultural gardens on the Michigan State University campus and Rotary Park, to name a few. You also began to miss the things you took for granted like restaurants, baseball games and shopping all your favorite stores.

The 517 has been coming back to life. Pandemic restrictions have somewhat lifted and soon you’ll be able to do so many things you’ve been wanting to do. That’s a reason in itself to celebrate!

517 Magazine was born last June when our publisher combined the Greater Lansing Business Monthly with Capital Area Women’s LifeStyle Magazine, so we’re also celebrating nearly a year of our new publication.

To celebrate your support as well as all things 517, we’re bringing you the 517 DAY OF GIVEAWAYS on May 17. Throughout the day on 5/17, we’ll be celebrating with prizes from local businesses including Royal Scot, MSUFCU, Potter Park Zoo, One North, American Bistro and the Lansing Lugnuts. Winners of each prize will also get a one-year subscription to 517 Magazine for themselves or a friend.

Winning is easy. Readers will be invited to watch our Facebook and Instagram pages for prize posts. To enter, simply place a comment on the post. Comments from both social channels will be combined in random drawings.

So go forth, spread the news and celebrate the 517 in style. Follow our social media channels @517mag and get ready to enjoy some 517 DAY OF GIVEAWAY prizes.
