I just want to take a moment to say thanks to everyone that has been so supportive of this project and event. When the folks from Chevy emailed me in October – they offered a pair of Steelers tickets in exchange for helping to spread the word about the Chevy Road to the Playoff event.
Brett from, OnlyinPgh and I asked, and they graciously agreed to let us use this Steelers Watch party as an event to raise awareness of and collect gift cards for the CHS holiday programs. And they loved the suggestion of hosting the event at the Double Wide Grill – which is another great coincidence because the folks at the Double Wide Grill have been working with Pittsburgh non profits year round to hold fundraising breakfasts.
A huge thanks to the following blogs for helping to spread the word about the event – I am amazed at how many people are willing to work to help spread the word about this event
- The Drunk Yinzer
- Pittsburgh Tweet Up
- Steeltown Anthem
- Pittsburgh Craft Collective
- Living Pittsburgh (by the way – they are giving away 2 tickets to the 12/19 Steelers game – details here)
- Commonwealth Press
And and extra special thanks to Moop Shop and Direct Online Marketing for their generous offers of support. And to Dan Gigler for including the event in his Steelers new on the Post-Gazette’s Blog ‘n’ Gold.More Ways to Help CHS this Holiday Season
