Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs to Produce a Party of a Different Color, Chosen by M&M’S(R) Fans
HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., May 13 /PRNewswire/ — For the past month, Americans have been visiting www.MMS.com to vote for their favorite M&M’SÃ‚® character – Red, Ms. Green, Yellow, Orange or Blue. Today, M&M’SÃ‚® Brand announced a unique partnership with Diddy that gives consumers an entirely new reason to vote.
To celebrate the M&M’SÃ‚® character voted America’s favorite, internationally-renowned music superstar and business mogul, Sean “Diddy” Combs will produce a special M&M’SÃ‚® Color Party in New York City. This will be the first time consumers will be able to choose the color of one of Diddy’s legendary events. The guest list? One M&M’SÃ‚®-loving American and 20 friends who can win by registering for the “Party Like Diddy Sweepstakes.” Diddy will also meet the winner in advance to help plan his first-ever Red or Green or Yellow or Orange or Blue Party.
“This year, I’m touring North America and Europe to promote my new album, Last Train to Paris, so unfortunately I can’t throw my annual White Party,” said Sean “Diddy” Combs. “But I wanted to make sure there was at least one colorful affair on the calendar this summer, so I’ll be producing the M&M’SÃ‚® Color Party, in honor of America’s favorite M&M’SÃ‚® character. It’s the first time people can pick the color of one of my parties.”
Eligible U.S. residents can enter for their chance to win the M&M’SÃ‚® Color Party produced by Diddy by registering for the “Party Like Diddy Sweepstakes” at www.MMS.com between noon on May 13 and noon on July 6, 2010.
