Vancouver Canadians Game: Client Appreciation Event

Kim PhillipsEvents, Reiko

On August 19th we had our 3rd annual Client Appreciation event at the Vancouver Canadians Baseball game.

It was a great, fun day to catch up with 140 of our clients, family, and friends. The game started at 1:05 pm and we played the Spokane Indians. It was great as we came back in the end and won!

Every Sunday for game day, A&W sponsors Family Fun Day. They sell $1 Root Beer floats and the proceeds are donated to a different charitable organization each week. They do giveaways to the first 500 fans to arrive at the game, for our event, kids received a Canadians hat! They also have a post-game “Run The Bases” for all kids 12 and under. It is so fun watching how excited the kids are to participate.

Each year, we learn new ways to tweak the day into becoming a better success.  This year by far was the most organized and planned out compared to the past. Some lessons we have overcome over the past few years include not mailing out tickets, planning where everyone sits and giving out C’s cash (Money vouchers for the concession) instead of doing prize draws.

This year we hired a videographer to capture the event. This was a huge help since we could actually sit, talk, and enjoy the day instead of taking photos and videos ourselves. A big thank you to Cole Jackson from Coal Films for our video!

Keep your eye out next summer for the 4th Annual Canadians Game!
