Toronto Blue Jays Alumni Joe Carter Delivers Happiness to Fans with Surprise from UPS
UPS Canada is a Proud Sponsor and Official Logistics Partner of the
Toronto Blue Jays
MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 29, 2014 /CNW/ – For the third consecutive year,
UPS announced it is a proud sponsor of the Toronto Blue Jays. To mark
this strategic sponsorship alliance, Toronto Blue Jays alumni and World
Series hero Joe Carter surprised a select number of long-standing
season ticket holders at The UPS Store in Toronto – delivering much
more than their season tickets.
“When Joe Carter walked out from behind the counter I was speechless,”
says Jeffery Dorfman, Owner, Katz’s Deli and Corned Beef, 2014 Blue
Jays Season Ticket Holder. “I’ve been a season ticket holder since
1988, aside from a repeat of the 92/93 World Series, there is nothing
that could make me happier!”
“The Toronto Blue Jays were excited to provide a unique and special experience for our season ticket holders
with the help of Joe Carter and UPS,” said Stephen Brooks, SVP,
Business Operations, Toronto Blue Jays “The Blue Jays would like to thank all the fans and UPS for their support
and tremendous interest in the ballclub and encourage them to come out
to Rogers Centre this season.”
Aside from the ultimate fan experience for a few season ticket holders,
Joe Carter greeted loyal customers of The UPS Store with a personal
picture and autographed Toronto Blue Jays gear to make them a part of
the surprise and thank them for their ongoing relationship with UPS.
UPS continues to expand its capabilities far beyond small package
delivery, with the ability to handle the most complex logistical
challenges through the most diverse portfolio of package, freight and
supply chain management services in the industry.
“The relationship with the Toronto Blue Jays is founded on shared values
– integrity, precision and the consistent drive for excellence; the
sponsorship underscores our commitment to these traits,” said Jim Bena,
vice-president of marketing, UPS Canada. “But it’s more than that.
There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the look on a customer’s
face when they’ve received that special something. The Toronto Blue
Jays share this analogy in the joy they bring to fans during every
game. Making customers happy is our number one priority.”
