Ravens Purple Pride Contests - September 2013
With the NFL season in full swing, the team at Bel Air Orthodontics was gearing up for some Ravens football. To show our Ravens spirit, we kicked off the football season with our Ravens Purple Pride Contests. Patients were challenged to guess the number of purple and black gumballs in the jar for a chance to win a $25 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods. Congratulations go to Tyler Hutchens. With an entry of 287, Tyler guessed the exact number of gumballs in the jar . . . Now that's amazing.
In addition to our gumball challenge, we also held our online Ravens Raffle. We asked you to visit us on Facebook and show us your Ravens spirit. A few of our patients suited up in their best Ravens gear and shared a picture with us. We randomly drew the name of one lucky winner from those who qualified.
Congratulations go to Brian Keh who also received a $25 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods for some cool new Ravens gear! Here's a picture of Brian and the Keh family showing off their Ravens Purple Pride. Thanks to all who participated.
