ABOUT was born out of a need  to fill a gap between the generosity of local businesses, and the social service agencies they support.

We are driven by three primary goals. 

  • Support Local Businesses to Help Fuel the Local Economy

  • Offer Great Deals and Discounts on Items and Services Donated By Local 541 Businesses

  • Give 100% of Proceeds To The Social Service Agencies Supported By Local Rotary Clubs 


Each Year, there are more than 100 "Dinner/Auction Events" in Lane County Alone.  The need to assist Social Service Agencies who provide food, shelter, and other emergency services, has never been greater., is just one way to help raise much needed funding, while offering up incentives to shoppers, through discounts, and deals.

ShopLocal541 offers a "quid pro quo" for businesses who generously support local efforts through ongoing marketing, customer interaction, and top of mind awareness in the community. And rather than placing the onus on a limited number of event attendees, it reaches the expa
nded audience of the entire community!

Short Bio on Founder

Patric Miller is an award-winning multimedia producer, marketing and advertising specialist and internet creator, with more than 40 years of experience. Bringing this experience to bear on the need for local service and local solutions, Patric joined Southtowne Rotary in 2017. 

After decades of work with businesses and broadcast companies, he has remained on the cutting edge of new technologies, marketing tools, and social media campaigns.  Recognizing that local businesses continue to struggle to recover after the COVID pandemic and shut-down, and watching local advertising and media outlets be minimized through acquisition or liquidation, he has determined that using his skills to help create marketing solutions, while helping local social service agencies was greatly needed. 

It is his hope, that this site, and the concept of Donating, Buying, and Supporting local projects with targeted opportunities to "Get a Great Deal While Supporting Local Business and Service Agencies," will expand beyond the work done by Eugene Southtowne Rotary.  

As they say in the outdoor advertising business, "Watch This Space."
