Brookside Foods Wraps “Giving Back With Chocolate” Charity Tour, Announces Winner of $15K Sweepstakes
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Brookside Foods (www.brooksidefoods.com), a creative chocolate company, has wrapped its “Giving Back with Chocolate” U.S. coast-to-coast charity tour and announced the winner of its $15,000 Sweepstakes. Sherron Jones from Randleman, NC is the lucky recipient of the Brookside prize, and will use her good fortune to give back to her father who suggested she enter in the first place, while also giving back through charitable efforts during the holidays.
During October and November, Brookside’s traveling team of Super Agents visited nearly 100 community-based non-profit organizations, from New York City to Los Angeles, including Dress For Success, Step Up Women’s Network and the Urban Affairs Coalition. Brookside recognized and rewarded the hard-working volunteers from these organizations by “Giving Back” with the gift of chocolate and monetary donations. Along the tour, Super Agents also surprised everyday consumers who volunteer in their communities with random acts of kindness, whether handing out chocolate for consumers to share with others or purchasing their lunch or gas. In total, Brookside distributed 990,000 samples of their Dark Chocolate Super Fruits product line.
“Brookside knows that no one deserves to be ‘Given Back with Chocolate’ more than those who devote themselves to giving back to improve their local communities,” said Deborah Shork, Director of Marketing, Brookside Foods, Ltd. “Through our ‘Giving Back with Chocolate’ tour, we were able to touch millions of people across the country, many of whom deserve more than a one-time recognition. We are committed to this spirit and compassion that is the hallmark of this country and excited to extend our campaign through the New Year and beyond.”
The success of “Giving Back with Chocolate” has inspired Brookside to continue promoting the spirit of giving and has launched “Give Back and Give Thanks” for the holiday season. Via a Facebook application, fans of Brookside’s Facebook page (facebook.com/brooksidefoodsusa) can send customized holiday e-cards to their friends and loved ones in gratitude. Anyone who sends an e-card will receive the gift of chocolate courtesy of Brookside with a $1 off coupon for any Brookside product. “Give Back and Give Thanks” will run through the New Year.
