Blue Out Knoxville & Random Acts of Flowers

277154_160867220648211_1118051_n Blue Frog Creations is taking part in BlueOut Knoxville, a great way to support your favorite charity. I hope you’ll consider nominating, voting, and attending the event.  It sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun!

Want to give more than $5,000 to your favorite charity and have a great time doing it? On September 29th, 2011, Knoxville is going to be a BlueOut! Bluegrass, Blue Moon, Pabst Blue Ribbon, BBQ and Bleu Cheese Cole Slaw.

BlueOut Knoxville was born out of a collaboration between two of Knoxville’s most involved social media creative marketing firms. During Social Slam ‘11, Tori Rose of Blue Media Boutique and Jeremy Floyd of Bluegill Creative discussed opportunities to break the traditionally competitive mold of local marketing firms and consider opportunities to work together for good. A few weeks later they reached out to Margaret Slattery at Blue Frog Creations to bring a video element to the table.

The result. BlueOut Knoxville—a charitable event to close summer one last sunny afternoon with beer, BBQ, and Bluegrass.

The way it works:

1. Between August 1, 2011 and August 31, 2011, nominate (via this form) and vote for your favorite charities.

2. On September 1st, the top 3 charities with the most votes will be named the blue ribbon finalists.

3. Between September 1st and the September 29th (the night of the event), votes may be purchased for $1.

At 8:30 pm on the night of BlueOut Knoxville, the winning charity will be announced!

I nominated Random Acts of Flowers, my favorite local charity. Not only are the people involved in RAF wonderful, but I've seen first hand the good work they do at local hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. I hope you'll consider voting for them--go to to learn more!
