Promotion Number Four - Union Square Holiday Stroll!
We've been asked by ACT to be involved in the Union Square Holiday
Stroll, we will be handing out flyers and spreading holiday cheer on
Thursday, Dec 7. The events feature festive holiday lighting,
in-store parties and special promotions with all of the participating
stores. There will be a tent set up in the square at 3:00. The
Dickens Fair will have a table in the tent. We would like to have
everyone meet as close to 4:30pm as possible. . I realize that this
might be difficult with people's work schedules, etc. 4:30 to
8pm. We will also be given a table inside the main tent at Union
Square. Kathy will be there at 4-4:15 pm to meet you at Union
Square (on Geary between Powell & Stockton)
What's in it for us? The Dickens Fair characters will be
mentioned in all of the press releases, all the ads, and on the Holiday
Stroll Web site, with a link to our Web site. This is an exciting
opportunity for the fair as well as for each of you because each
participant will receive a certificate good for two tickets to the ACT
production of A Christmas Carol, That will be above and beyond the
Holly Tree Club bonus of two comp tickets per person to the fair- plus
with all the holiday parties it should be lots of fun anyway. In order
to get the tickets from ACT you MUST check in with the point person who
will have the tickets.
Have Fun Everyone! Let us know how it went afterwards by giving us
feedback at thehollytreeclub yahoo group at http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/thehollytreeclub/
