We recently had the opportunity to be a co-sponsor for a local Nashville event benefitting Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. The event was organized by Southeastern Young Alumni Charitable Foundation (SEYA). Sunglasses and Koozies were well received by excited guest at the entrance of the event. Our booth was hoppin’ as we chatted it up and passed out swag such as bottle openers, cowbells, acrylic tumblers, and football schedule magnets. As I always say, PEOPLE LOVE FREEBIES!
Part of the fun was that guests were given the option of trying some of the tastiest BBQ from the best smokehouses in town! Guest were also given drink coupons to enjoy 1 of 3 flavors of Sweetwater Beer and a ticket to cast a vote for the best BBQ. The People’s Choice BBQ winner this year was Puckett’s Grocery, great job, way to make our mouths water with that great pulled pork and cole slaw!
Local vendors such as Val’s boutique had a wide selection of tailgating dresses catering to the needs of the ladies to impress those southern gentleman. We also held a drawing at our booth for a chance to win 500 FREE imprinted bottle openers! A congratulations to The Nielsen Company, particularly Erica Gillespie, Associate Client Manager for winning the bottle openers!
The event was a great success raising over $20,000! We also had a blast and met some some really cool folks from the area! I wish all the SEC teams good luck as we kicked off the season in style and walked away with some great swag!
