This year, the Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards introduced a little something extra to their annual awards - fabulous gift bags for all 500 attendees.
To call the items a hit would be an understatement. Folks from the broadcast media across the region commented all night long on the goodies - from the Fairytale Brownies, to the Phoenix Woman Magazines, to the Westcor bags, to the Subway toys and coupons, to the Dolce spa gift certificates to the multiple Revolution Tea samples.
"I actually tried to get a couple extra bags, since I already ate my cream cheese brownie and drank all of my tea during the show," said double Emmy winner Bob Adlhoch, producer with Phoenix Suns Broadcasting. "I just hope I didn't have any crumbs on me when I went up to get my awards!"
In addition to the gift bags, the Emmy's also introduced a casino gaming theme to the show, where attendees could play craps, roulette and black jack for the chance to win tickets to Coyotes and Suns games, a $250 gift card from Westcor, a stay at the Renaissance Glendale Hotel and Spa, and free spa and makeup goodies from Zethina Cosmetics and Skin Frenzy.
