Op: Dinner Out Sponsor Thank You’s

An event like Operation: Dinner Out is only successful if you have a team of volunteers and sponsors who believe in your mission and support it 100%.

In my previous post I thanked our amazing and key volunteers. Today, Im going to concentrate on our team of Sponsors.

Having planned group functions, along with some hotel experience, Im no stranger to planning a large event. However, this event was completely different. It truly was a labor of love, something I was completely passionate about!

In securing the sponsors for this event we approached a few key organizations:

Title Sponsor USAA. Their belief that we could pull off an event is a huge vote of confidence for Navy Wife Radio. USAA is a company that “knows what it means to serve” and they take their relationship with the military family very seriously. I can’t thank them enough for their support.

MilitaryByOwner.com – The next time you are moving or selling your home, be sure to visit militarybyowner.com. They are a wonderful resource to find homes in your new duty station area and a great way to advertise your home for sale (even if you have a real estate agent). Their belief and support of this event is very much appreciated and I can’t wait to work with them in the future.

Operation RE/MAX – This great organization is committed to help military spouses take their careers with them from duty station to duty station. They recognize the loyalty, level of commitment and work ethic in military spouses and they created Operation RE/MAX, a training program that helps spouses start a career in the administrative and agent side of RE/MAX. We are so excited they joined our event and sent to wonderful ambassadors Chuck and Cathy Allford. They were amazing and such champions of the military family. Chuck, retired Air Force, and Cathy fit right in and we can’t wait to work with them again.

Billy and Gayle Blanks – TaeBo – Billy is passionate about fitness and his relationship with the troops and their families. He and his daughter Shellie were on our show a couple months back and they let us know if we ever needed anything to ask them. When we were planning this event, we approached them and they came through for us in a huge way. We love Billy, Gayle and Shellie and thank them for their support of military families.

Donations also poured in from:

Soldiers Angels – our Charity Partner

More Donations came in from
Jacksonville Jaguars
Bead Work by Sheree

Other key thank you’s:
Bath and Body Works
Toby’s T-shirts
Big O Production Company
Jessie with the Hyatt Regency Downtown Jacksonville Riverfront
Command Master Chief Richard Trimmer and his wife Janet
USAA Onsite Rep. Hardy Kircher – Capt. US Navy Ret.

Promotion by:
Tube Daze – Hey, Shipwreck!
USO – Jacksonville

All of these companies love the military and love supporting the troops and their families. Again I must state, Operation Dinner Out would not have happened without these folks.

We are proud and honored to be supported by them!

I hope you felt the love from all these sponsors!
