Get ready to work on the pressing power 🙂

– – – CROSSFIT CONTEST // SEAFAIR BALL INFO – – –
I’m helping to coordinate a contest between local gyms in support of Seafair Ball 2014, a benefit on August 1 for USO Northwest and the new Seatac Center. You can find the event and more information on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1432794453651580/
You can get an idea of what’s to come by checking out the preview video – found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCGGj1VacEs. To give you a better sense of the purpose of the benefit, this is a quote from the Executive Director of USO Northwest.
“USO Northwest has been serving military members and their families 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. The SeaTac Center is the busiest center in the USO inventory nationally, and traffic continues to increase significantly. Funds raised at this year’s Seafair Ball will go towards the completion of a new center that will be better equipped to provide essential services and programs for the over 150,000 traveling service members and their families…. The financial support from the Seafair Ball will have a long lasting impact on service members and their families in the Northwest. Our new USO SeaTac Center will enable us to keep pace with the increased demand for the services and programs we provide our military and their families for years to come.” (Donald Leingang, executive director of USO Northwest (USONW) and CDR, USN Retired)
We all work so hard in the gym, and this is the perfect opportunity to kick back, get dressed up and on the dance floor for a good cause. Please come and show gym-wide support and celebrate the best weekend in Seattle with Seafair Ball! Gym promo codes offer a 20% discount for general admission and VIP tickets – as is shown on your custom image. Super straightforward.
Each ticket comes with complimentary parking, coat check, apps and a glass of champagne… As well as a $25 gift card back to El Gaucho for dinner. For couples, that’s 50$ towards a paleo steak dinner! There’s three different entertainment acts and two hosts to entertain all evening. Here’s the link to tickets: http://shindigg.com/PurchaseNew/CStsciQg?orderKey=i1lBUAGmi5KN
I’ve gone ahead and created custom codes for your gym for members to use as they purchase tickets as a way to track attendance and keep your score for the prizes we’ll be offering as an incentive! Courtesy of PR Lifting, we’re going to award the top three gyms with the best member attendance prizes – sleds, an axle or olympic lifting bar – real gear you can use.
If you could please show your support for the event, I would really, really appreciate a shout socializing it on any of your channels. It’s a great night to get behind and rally your community and friends to get together and out for. I know some gyms are mostly on Facebook, or have a daily blog that people are always looking at – that would be IDEAL. You’re welcome to socialize it however you like, all I ask is that you post the attached photo up with the link for tickets (http://shindigg.com/PurchaseNew/CStsciQg?orderKey=i1lBUAGmi5KN) urging everyone to get out and support a good cause on a Friday night and use the codes to save some money and help win some cool prizes!
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. This is a slightly time-sensitive event, so your cooperation in helping to coordinate this is appreciated. I’ll follow up if I don’t hear back from you in the next few days or give your gym a ring – I know everyone is busy and it’s summer so I want to make the process as simple and smooth as possible.
Thank you for your time!
