It is the final week of voting for the BlueOut Knoxville competition. I told you about this awesome fundraiser and encouraged you to vote for my favorite local charity—Random Acts of Flowers—in early August, and the big event is right around the corner.
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.
Now is the time to get your tickets for the fundraiser. Go to www.blueoutknoxville.com to purchase tickets for the event on Thursday, September 29th. Tickets are $50, and the proceeds from the event will go to non-profits in our area. What a fun way to support your community!
