SALES AND MARKE TING COUNCIL New Fundraising Events Added This Year By Kevin Polite, SMC Communications Committee The Sales and Marketing Council’s 2008 theme of “We’ve Got the Power” continues with new events planned for our fundraising efforts. In previous years, every October we’ve held our annual Silent Auction fundraiser, but this year, SMC Special Events Co-Chairs Tori Ewing and Bobby Mink are mixing things up a bit and have added exciting new events. A Beer Tasting and Cheating for Charity is scheduled for Thursday, June 19, at Five Seasons Brewery. We’ve reserved the biergarten area for our event, which will include a team trivia contest. The cost to participate includes flights of beer, heavy hors d’oeuvres for the pairings and team trivia. Event T-shirts can be ordered for an additional $15 each. If a team wants to use a “lifeline” or “call a friend” for help with one of their questions, they have to pay a fee, which will go toward raising money for our charities. There will be prize drawings throughout the evening, and Five Seasons has generously offered two $50 gift cards for its restaurant. We’re looking forward to great participation at this event and a fun evening for all! Remember how much fun it is to bowl? Now you’ll get your chance to compete and help raise money for the charities we support. We’re keeping you guessing for now, but look for more information to come soon about our fall fundraising event on Oct. 13. In-kind donations also are being collected at every SMC event for these deserving charities: HomeAid Atlanta (, CURE Childhood Cancer (, Georgia Canines for Independence ( and Georgia National Guard Foundation ( Tori and Bobby are really working hard this year and have some innovative ideas. Special thanks to Mary Kay Thompson of Coldwell Banker Builder Developer Services for coordinating the Beer Tasting, and to the additional volunteers who help us raise funds for charity.
