HOOD® BLIMP RETURNS TO NEW ENGLAND’S SKIES!
For those of you who aren’t (yet) aware, I’m born and raised in the Connecticut, right smack in the middle of New England. I’m also a born and raised Boston Red Sox fan, and have grown up with Hood dairy products. My kids are growing up with them as well. This promotion spekas to me because we’re just a few hours from Boston and we LOVE our Red Sox!
The Hood® Blimp is officially back in Beantown. Famous for representing Hood, the blimp debuted in Boston debut on Saturday, August 4th, over Red Sox vs. Minnesota Twins game at Fenway Park. To celebrate its return, Hood is launching the “Hood Blimp Spotting” campaign. Beginning on August 4th, each photo of the Hood Blimp shared via social media channels will give fans a chance to win Hood/Red Sox prize packs including items like a Hood Ice Cream party, Red Sox tickets and a ride in the Hood Blimp. From now until October, Hood will donate $1* from the sales of each container of Hood Red Sox Ice Cream and Novelties, the Official Ice Cream of the Boston Red Sox, to the Red Sox Foundation, the team’s official charity program.
“For fans of all ages, seeing the Hood Blimp in the sky is a treasured part of summer here in New England – just like Hood Ice Cream,” said Red Sox Senior Vice President and Executive Director of the Red Sox Foundation Meg Vaillancourt. “Now, through Hood’s generous donation to the Red Sox Foundation, fans can help support programs for at-risk kids too. It’s a great way the whole family can help others!”
To participate in the “Hood Blimp Spotting” program, spot the Blimp overhead in New England and snap and post a picture to the contest tab on HP Hood’s Facebook page or tweet the photo with the #HoodBlimp hashtag. For each original submission, one lucky winner will be selected each week to receive a Hood/Red Sox prize package. Entries are limited to one per person, per day. As a thank you for posting, entrants will be rewarded with a coupon that can be used towards Hood’s Red Sox Ice Cream and Novelty products. With every purchase of Hood Red Sox Ice Cream or Novelties through the end of the regular season, Hood will donate a portion of the sales to the Red Sox Foundation (up to $100,000).
