MJC Supports Local Businesses Through Return of 'Preaks Weeks'


Preak Weeks initiative in partnership with Heidi Klotzman of HeidnSeek Entertainment returns for its second season, 1/ST and The Maryland Jockey Club announced Tuesday. Preak Weeks shines a spotlight on Baltimore-based businesses in the lead up to the Preakness, the second jewel in the US Triple Crown. Each day from Apr. 26 through May 17, one of 22 participating businesses will give away to a set of customers the “Ultimate Preakness Experience,” a four-pack of tickets to Preakness 149 that includes access to this year's Preakness Live festivities. In addition, each participating business will receive a custom QR code for Preakness 149 ticket sales at 10% off and will receive 10% of all proceeds made through their individual code.

The public is encouraged to patronize the establishments–ranging from restaurants and cafes to boutiques, services and community organizations–throughout the three-week promotion, both as a show of support to Baltimore-based businesses and for a chance to win or purchase their tickets through the custom QR codes. No purchase is necessary to win the tickets.
