Cincinnati, OH ·· August 18, 2014 ·· Ohio Valley Goodwill and Cincinnati’s Flying Pig Marathon’s newest feature, the Queen Bee Half Marathon, are joining together to do good things in support of our community. As a Royal sponsor of the Queen City’s newest event, Ohio Valley Goodwill will be involved in the Friday Queen Bee Expo hosting a donation station outside of the Horseshoe Casino as well as providing all of the accessories to help race participants take their best “selfies” ever at the Queen Bee Photo Booths. On Race Day, Saturday, October 11th, Goodwill will not only be sponsoring a donation station but will be offering chances to win an extravagant Spa Pampering basket for all of its generous donors. The lucky winner will be announced at the Post-Race Party on October 11th.
The partnership for good came about because of a shared wish between the Queen Bee and Goodwill to offer race participants the opportunity to de-clutter and simplify their lives and at the same time to help someone else in our community. Donations to Goodwill help more than 3100 people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans go to work in the Greater Cincinnati area each year. And the best part is it’s so easy! Racers can just throw stuff into a box and drop it off at the Goodwill donation station on your way to the BEE-U-Tique Expo on Friday, October 10th or on race day morning, October 11th. All donors will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win the Spa Pampering Basket truly worthy of a Queen.
Ohio Valley Goodwill will also be sharing its treasure trove of unique and buzz-worthy accessories at the “Selfie” Photo Booths on both Friday, October 10th and Race Day, October 11th. Goodwill worker bees will be busily helping race-goers to create their best “selfie” looks ever for that priceless commemorative Queen Bee launch photo. Other members of Goodwill’s team will actually be participating in the first-time event joining in with the thousands of excited Queen Bee participants. “Our team members are currently training for our participation in the Queen Bee Half Marathon,” said Ann Walters, Retail Sales Director. “We are very excited to not only be a Royal sponsor of the premier race but also, to be joining with all of the other runners in trying to achieve our own personal goals,” added Walters.
Join Ohio Valley Goodwill and thousands of Greater Cincinnatians for the first-ever Queen Bee Half Marathon on October 10th and 11th and don’t forget the buzz…Bring a donation and get a chance to win a luxurious Spa Pampering basket at the Post-Race Party. You’ll have fun and “bee” doing good at the same time!
