We Have a Winner!

We have a winner, actually, we have two. The response to our Win-A-Wrap sweepstakes was amazing. There were so many deserving organizations it was impossible to choose just one winner – so we picked two, and even that was difficult! We want to thank everyone who entered. We enjoyed reading your stories and appreciate that you took the time to share. Here are the two winners and their winning entries.

Why Should Your Company Win-A-Wrap?

 Agape Therapeutic Riding Center, Agape Therapeutic Riding Center a Premier Accredited Riding Center through Path Int’l (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) is deserving of a vehicle wrap for a plethora of reasons. The wrap will be installed on our Miniature Horse Hauler which is used to transport miniature horses all across central Indiana in order for them to share the Unbridled Hope that Agape is known for.

The miniature horses provide programming to several hundred people per year through partnerships with organizations such as Joy’s House Adult Day Service in Indianapolis where they provide Memory Lane programming working with participants that have a lifelong diagnosis.

The miniature horses are also utilized for Equine Facilitated Learning programming. In partnership with AYS Inc. before and after school programs, the mini’s are utilized to enrich the learning environment of children after school. They provide onsite programming to children of all ages teaching character and leadership skills as well as math and reading skills.

As an organization that serves more than 2000 individuals per year and has over 300 active volunteers per week, marketing is a crucial part of our continued success as a non-profit organization. The vehicle wrap would allow for better advertising of our services, give a chance to display vendors that make our work possible, and provide a fun and unique way for our miniature horses to ride around in style.

Why Should Your Company Win-A-Wrap?

 The Frigid Frog and More Plainfield, IN, We are a family owned and operated small business that reaches many families and charities in the community. We love serving others through our work and donations to various charities like Sheltering Wings, Riley Hospital, & A Little Rae of Hope just to name a few. We have partnered with Plainfield Police for events like National Night Out. Schools are also a priority for us. We have worked with all of the Plainfield Community Schools as well as other schools across Indianapolis donating a portion of our sales back to the schools.

We are now carrying Black Rifle Coffee which is a veteran owned and operated company that donates a portion of all sales to veteran programs and 100% of the sales of their Thin Blue Line Coffee to wounded officer’s families. We would love to advertise all of our offerings; Frigid Frog Shaved Ice, POP! Popcorn, Twist gourmet cotton candy, and Black Rifle Coffee.

The Best Calls of the Day

Nancy Jarial, TKO VP of Marketing, and I had the privilege and pleasure of calling each winner. I called Chrisy, a local school teacher, community activist, and co-owner with her husband Keith of the Plainfield, IN Frigid Frog. I began the call by reintroducing myself (I had been to their operation, met Keith, and chatted with Chrisy on the phone earlier in the year) and then I told her I was about to post something on social media about the Frigid Frog. She asked what and I let her know I’d be posting that the Frog was a winner of the Win-A-Wrap sweepstakes! She gushed and then asked if I was telling the truth. Like I said, this was a privilege.

Nancy and I called Luke at Agape, when he came to the phone I thanked him for entering, and explained there were so many qualified entries it was hard to choose. However, we did choose, and Agape won! Nancy told him that we expected to see their miniature horses, and a tour of their facility is in the works!

We Thank You!

Once again, we want to thank everyone who entered. There are so many hard-working, giving businesses and not for profits that entered, it makes us proud of the great folks in Central Indiana and beyond, thank you.
