At the beginning of this year, Deluxe Corporation, a leader in check production, financial services, and small business solutions, announced a nationwide call to nominate small towns to receive $500,000 to revitalize their Main Street. By May 3, Deluxe and celebrity entrepreneur Robert Herjavec had selected two communities out of nearly 10,000 nominations as finalists – Silverton, Oregon and our own Wabash, Indiana.

After a week long public voting process, in which more than 180,000 votes were cast to select a favorite town, Wabash residents gathered to hear the good news that they were the lucky recipients of half a million dollars!

Today, Tuesday September 27th, an eight-part web series debuts telling the story of how Wabash and series hosts Amanda Brinkman and Robert Herjavec use their windfall to help revitalize this north-central Indiana community.
