Limitless: It’s Gala Season With The Special Olympics & G of G Inc
Everyone loves a fancy party or gala and last weekend was no exception! The guys and gals of G of G Inc were so excited to be a part of LIMITLESS: The Special Olympics Canada Gala which happened on November 17th. The event was held in the famous Fairmont Royal York Hotel, a venue which always impresses, and held a dinner, silent auction, all night entertainment and more! The goals of the organization are to “Increase program participation of individuals with an intellectual disability, increase recruitment of volunteers, including trained coaches and officials, and ensure the financial integrity of the Special Olympics Canada movement for generations to come” which we feel are such important goals to strive towards. This is why we were honored to take part.
The team was selling raffle tickets to guests at the gala for which the grand prize was an Airbnb gift card valued at $5000! They would interact with attendees while they mingled, browsed the auction items, and sat for dinner. Our reps felt that the activation for them was actually a rewarding experience, as they could feel the genuine interest, passion and support the attendees had towards supporting those who participate in the games.
Another rep stated that the guests in attendance made their job as brand ambassadors so easy as they were awesome to interact with and excited to partake. Comments included how happy they were to have met so many awesome people at work (guests and fellow brand ambassadors) and that great things can happen if everyone works together.
The Stanley Cup being in attendance was another highlight of the evening, to which one brand ambassador used to her advantage. In order to leave each guest with a positive memory she guided them to the display and told them a fun story about The Cup that not most people know. Needless to say, I am sure many hockey fans purchased their raffle tickets from her!
We are so proud of this team especially because the feedback from the client consisted of a short but week THE TEAM WAS AMAZING – LOVED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!
We are looking forward to this weekend for another annual charity event we partake in. Keep an eye on next weeks blog to read more about it!
