Multimedia Sales and Marketing had a blast with their 2nd quarter Community Outreach event, which raised $400 and benefited the 100 Club of Chicago. Employees of MSM and INT had the opportunity to pay $1, $3 or $5 to pop a balloon. Each balloon popped was a chance to win a prize. Three different prize levels were available based on the value of the balloons. By popping the less expensive balloons, there was a greater chance to win a prize. However, the higher valued balloons had the higher valued prizes.
Some of the prizes won included:
$1.00 Balloons: candy bars, MSM pens, lottery tickets, Amope Pedi Sets, MSM stress balls, and various $5.00 gift cards
$3.00 Balloons: MSM tumblers, coffee mugs, notebooks, Shirts, Starbucks delivered personally by Tom Hughes, bring a friend to a work lunch event, a free pass to wear work-appropriate pajamas to the office, a free pass to wear a baseball cap to the office, lunch with MSM Management
$5.00 Balloons: 2 Cubs tickets, 1 week in a private office, an extra spin on the birthday wheel the month of your birthday, $50 Visa gift card, $25 Visa gift card, your choice of any open cubicle on the sales floor, a private tour of a radio station for you and a friend, and 1 week of reserved parking.
The suspense and excitement as to what prize was in the balloon made the activity even more fun, but even if the balloon only contained a “thank you for your donation,” everyone had a great time participating in this engaging and suspenseful activity.
