Cost Plus World Market sweepstakes and more!

Have you all experienced the fun that is Cost Plus World Market?  It's one of my absolute favorite stores- but I have to make sure I don't visit too often, because it's hard not to buy everything I see every time I shop there! I received some information today about a sweepstakes that Cost Plus World Market has going on this summer- you can see that below. Also below is information about an easy way that you can help Cost Plus World Market donate money to a non-profit that supports kids' music education in public schools!

This summer Cost Plus World Market ( www.worldmarket.com) is celebrating great nostalgic summertime experiences like backyard BBQs, beach gatherings, block parties and fun music with its “Rock Your Summer” promotion from June 26 through July 23, 2011. As the premier sponsor of The Go-Go’s concert at The Greek Theatre on Wednesday, August 17, World Market is giving one winner and 10 of his or her lucky friends the chance to see The Go-Go’s live in concert in Los Angeles, with a VIP party and an opportunity to meet the band. The winner also receives a $2,000 World Market gift card. Customers can enter for a chance to win World Market’s “The Go-Go’s Getaway Sweepstakes” at www.worldmarket.com.

Also, World Market customers who shop the Los Angeles and Orange County-area stores and spend $40 or more in mid-July, will have a chance to receive two free tickets to The Go-Go’s concert at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday, August 17, 2011. A limited number of tickets will be available; for more information, go tohttp://www.worldmarket.com/go-gos for full complete details beginning July 11.

In addition, World Market will donate $1 for each new Facebook fan (up to $20,000) it receives from July 5 through July 23, 2011 to Little Kids Rock (http://littlekidsrock.org), a national non-profit agency dedicated to restoring and revitalizing music education in U.S. public schools.
