You may have heard that the Small Business Bonfire was among an elite group of small business organizations invited to participate in the Local Resource Cafe during the NY Times Small Business Summit, taking place on Monday, June 13 in New York City.

We are thrilled to be participating in the event, and hope to meet some of our Bonfire members and readers there. For more information, read our press release, and make sure you’re registered for the Summit.

In celebration of this event — our first outing since we launched in February — we are kicking off a week of giveaways and special offers. Here is how it will work.

There will be three rounds of giveaways (announced Wednesday, Friday and Sunday), and each round will include a special offer for all Bonfire members who upgrade to a premium account, as well as a random drawing for a free gift.

To be eligible to win the free gift, all you need to do is register as a free member of the Small Business Bonfire — we will pick winners randomly from our member database. You can take advantage of the special offer by upgrading your free account to an Oxygen, Heat or Fuel account on the days specified.

We will be starting tomorrow, so make sure you have created your free Kindling account on the Small Business Bonfire so you’re eligible to win!
