WASHINGTON COUNTY – Now in it’s 14th year, Dixie Direct has expanded to northern Utah. After raising nearly $150,000 for the local community in fundraisers last year, Dixie Direct owner Tony Chambers said he hopes to do the same in Logan.
Dixie Direct made other new changes this year, including a new website developed by StubThumb. The site shows customers each ad that is in the new book, as well as testimonials from customers. There is an option to buy the book online, however Chambers said he would rather have customers purchase the book from one of the many local fundraisers.
Many of the local elementary schools are selling the Dixie Direct book to put money into the PTA program, as well as family and friends of Washington County resident Joe Eves, who is raising money for a new kidney.
Chambers said Dixie Direct would prefer people purchase the books that way, so that half of the proceeds go to the group selling the book.
This year’s book contains over 250 local businesses and 29 free bonus coupons. The books are sold for $35, with $17.50 going to the fundraising group who sells it.
Chambers said it isn’t too late to use Dixie Direct as a fundraiser, and there are no up front costs to the group.
