NAPLES, Fla. – Waterside Shops, Southwest Florida’s premiere shopping and dining destination, leveraged event marketing to show their support for the community with their Sip & Shop series, which ran from October 2014 thru April 2015. Cumulatively, the monthly series donated $5000 to various charities. Partners for this season included: Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Foundation for the Developmentally Disabled, Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples, and Dress for Success.
Sip & Shop Sundays were held every Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. A Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar was set up in the shopping center’s Pavilion area surrounded by fountains and waterfalls. Guests also enjoyed live entertainment. All proceeds from the event were donated monthly to a different charity. Guests, 21 and older, enjoyed $5 Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas, as they shopped at any one of Waterside’s 60 luxury stores.
“We love to create events that allow us to enhance the guest experience, while showing our support for the community. Our shoppers enjoyed the series and asked that we continue next season,” says Anne Fleming, Waterside Shops General Manager.
