Holy-Field Vineyard and Winery is ready to be mobbed.
On Saturday, the Basehor business will be the latest target of the Kansas City Metro Area Cash Mob. The cash mob is a group of shoppers who swarm locally owned businesses in the metro area, $20 bills in hand.
“We descend on this business at a predetermined time, and then everybody is encouraged to spend at least $20 in cash,” said cash mob organizer Kelly Ziegler, “and only cash.”
Ziegler, who owns Ziggy Franz Advertising in Tonganoxie, helped launch the cash mob in January to support area businesses. Ziegler and one other organizer scope out two mob spots each month and announce the events through Facebook and Twitter (@cmkansascity). One spot each month is located near the core of the Kansas City area, and one is on the outer edges.
When the mob descends on Holy-Field from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, it will be the first mob site in Leavenworth County, and the first outer-edge site in Kansas.
