For the last 8 months, the RAM 1500 from Stanley Chrysler (decked out in a jaw-dropping vehicle wrap with incredible wildlife images) has been driving around The Kenai, Alaska’s Playground from Seward, to Kenai, to Soldotna, to Homer, and just about everywhere in between.
Why, you ask? Because The Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council created a cohesive brand campaign/raffle to create energy and excitement for all of the communities on Alaska’s Playground, AND to raise money to help further promote all of the glory of the Kenai Peninsula on a worldwide level. Mountains, glaciers, wildlife… oh my!
And what better way to create awareness for The Kenai, Alaska’s Playground than to give away a super-sweet RAM 1500 Truck, a Kayak with a Thule Rack, and a “Stay and Play” lodging and adventure package in Kenai, Soldotna, Seward, and Homer!
None of this would have been possible with out the most incredible sponsors and partners! Talk about a community coming together for the good of community! We know, we are SO lucky and SO grateful to live among such incredible neighbors.
To start off, a BIG “thank you” to Stanley Chrysler for donating a VEHICLE! This, was a HUGE deal for us. And we are simply beyond-grateful.
And to Sportsman’s Warehouse of Soldotna for donating a new 14″ Kayak equipt with a Thule Rack! A personal shout-out to Store Manager, Eric Dahlman, for his undying enthusiasm and for being the living embodiment of the Alaska’s Playground brand. A big thank you to the whole Sportsman’s Warehouse team for their conceited efforts in selling raffle tickets all summer!
Homer Chamber of Commerce, thank you to the whole team!
Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center, big thank you to you all!
Seward Chamber of Commerce, thank you to the whole team!
And last but certainly not least… Soldotna Chamber of Commerce! Thank you to the whole team! And CONGRATS on selling the most tickets, AND to Michelle Glaves, Executive Director, for selling the winning ticket! Woo Hoo!
