Three entirely different topics, but they actually blend together very nicely. You see, the Red Sox are an official sponsor of the PMC and Jordon's Furniture is a sponosor of the Red Sox. Simple as that.
- Free Furniture? Now that the baseball season is officially under way thanks to the Red Sox two game series in Japan I figured we'd talk briefly about the chance for some free furniture. I'm sure you heard about last years "Monster Deal" that Jordan's Furniture put on in conjunction with the Sox. They had a program where if you bought furniture from them during a specific period in April and May of 07 and then the Sox won the World Series you'd get that furniture for FREE. Entirely FREE! Of course you know the outcome of the Series last year so just imagine how happy all those folks who got free furniture were. Jordan's ended up giving away over 30,000 pieces of furniture to the tune of about $20million dollars! [luckily they took an insurance policy out on the promotion so they were able to cheer on the Sox and it didn't really cost them all that much, plus they got tons of free publicity]
Who'd of thought they [or the insurance company] would repeat the deal this year, but that's just what they've done. They have, however, upped the anty a bit only giving away the furniture for free if the Sox sweep the World Series again this year. Talk about a tall order. I wonder if that's ever happened...back to back World Series champs both done in a 4 game sweep of the opponent. Somebody check that out for me. In the mean time, you can read about the offer here.
- I wanted to offer once more chance for anyone out there to get thier logo on the back of our PMC jersey for this summer. We're about to put the order in later next week so time is running short. If you'd like to donate $500 or $1000 to the PMC we'll gladly put your company logo on our jersey. Here's a sneak peak of what the final version will look like:
Logo's all go on the back pockets. Heck...donate a few thousand and we'll put the logo anywhere you want!
Now for the T-shirts. We want to begin accepting orders from family and friends who want to purchase t-shirts to wear as they cheer us along during the PMC weekend or just show your support of Team Xaverian around town! All sizes are available, in both a men's and women's cut, small through 2XL and are only $9. What a deal. If your interested in one please email [ knowak at sgarzi dot net ] me your order before April 7th. We'll be ordering them soon and have it out to you before the summer. If you ordered one last year the size will be exactly the same since we're ordering from the same vendor and plan on using the same style of t-shirt as well. Here's a quick glimpse of the front and back, and as you can see, the back will have our popular "thumbs-up" logo displayed on it:
Hope you like the layout...we think it's going to look very sharp, just like 2007. Email in those orders and send me out a check.
Lastly...we'll be starting the official fundraising campaign next week with a huge mailing, both snail and email, but if you'd like to get a jump start you can donate by clicking this link.
Thanks again for your support!
