Get to know the latest “Sponsor Me Spring” winners.

October 14th, 2009

Everyone tells us this campaign is too good to be true. Trust us.. this is the real deal. Just check out the long list of events we have been sponsoring since the summer of 2009! We’ve had a blast participating in these events and are proud to have been a part of them. The pirate party, the pimped out deck party and the outdoor beer Olympixxx are just a few of the epic ones we’ll never forget.

We believe all great events deserve our attention. Need to know how to get your party sponsored? All you need to do is create a little video explaining your event – however obscure it may be – and why it deserves to get sponsored. Should your event get chosen – we will crash your bash and hook you up with some essential party supplies and the necessary liquids. The sponsorships are rewarded autonomously through our contest website and are chosen based on merit and popularity of the video. Check out sponsormespring.ca for more details.

Proud Sponsor of The Ruby Lake Hockey Video Game Tournament

This active group of young guys are venturing off to the Sunshine Coast to ignore all the great things it has to offer and lock themselves indoors for a few days of intense gaming action.

That along with a weekend survival package to ensure the 2nd annual excursion goes without a hitch.

The soon to be Mr. and Mrs. will be adorned with their very own his and her Okanagan Spring wearables along with some glassware for their still boxed up kitchen. And as everyone knows, a house warming is just not right without a fridge of ice cold refreshments to celebrate all their good fortune. Congrats Steve and Mandy!

April

Proud Sponsor of Sean’s Lavish Garage Playoff Viewing

Sean has become well known for his hosting some of the best playoff parties this province has to offer.

We do after all need to make sure that he and his guests witness each and every detail of defeat while eliminating the Blackhawks. In addition to this most impressive grand prize – his lavish garage playoff party will be complemented by a healthy stock of Okanagan Spring Pale Ale, all the necessary finger foods and good selection of tacky fan-fanatic paraphernalia.

Michael’s party package will include an elaborate, cutlery-free feast, buckets of Okanagan Spring, a bunch of Canuck fan gear, and an official NHL rule book to avoid any undue controversy!

Proud Sponsor of Eric Putting His Heart and Soul on the Line

This hard core group of hockey fanatics mean business. We will equip these guys with an official set of Canuck’s playoff towels so they are ready to wipe away all the blood, sweat and tears that were endured along the road to sweet victory. All the traditional, necessary supplies will be provided to sustain them through this journey: a well stocked fridge of Okanagan Spring and the appropriate mix of munchies. Last but not least, as a kind gesture to their significant others, we have thrown in a set of Canucks hats to hide their greasy playoff locks and a beard trimmer for immediate hair removal upon possession of the Cup.

It was a pretty sweet deck and it was in our hometown of Vernon, so we could not resist this sponsorship.
