Help a Bay St. Louis business win a national contest

Posted: Updated:
BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) -

A Bay St. Louis business owner needs your help to help a variety of charities in and around Hancock County.

Holly Lemoine-Raymond, owner of the Cypress Cafe', is competing in an online video contest for the most compelling story on how she built her small business. The contest is sponsored by the National Federation of Independent Business.

If Raymond wins the $5,000 top prize, she plans to give it all away to several local charities.

"I want to tell everyone to vote. You can vote every day until Monday. We're in second place right now. We really want to win for the community," Raymond said. "This is something I got into in record time; I didn't realize what I was actually getting involved in. But now that it's become national, we want to make a difference in our community."
