DARIEN — For Darien artist Nobu Miki, it was a Christmas Eve miracle.

Miki shared on social media that she was one of several lucky winners of the Darien Together December raffle, granting gift cards to local shoppers.

“As far as I can remember, I have not won anything in my life but a Christmas Eve miracle happened to me! I won a Darien Together $250 gift card,” she said.

Miki spent her gift card at The Darien Running Company.

“The clerks were so nice and helpful and I got a super last minute present for my son who was formerly on the DHS track team,” she said.

The Corbin District is teamed up The Darien Chamber of Commerce to spread the joy of the season and to support local retailers during this holiday season with a social media campaign.

Beginning in November through Dec. 24, winners were drawn to receive $250 gift certificates that can be redeemed in local shops who are members of the Darien Chamber of Commerce and/or businesses in The Corbin District.

“We love Nobu and can think of no better person to win,” said The Corbin District’s David Genovese.

Also on Dec. 24, all participants were placed in a season-ending drawing to win one night at The Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, or two nights at The Taconic Hotel in Manchester, Vermont, or one night at Hero Beach Club in Montauk.
