Special events often lend themselves to some sort of giveaway for the guests.
I have several paperweight type things on my desk from various groundbreaking or topping-off events that I have attended over the years. There are also other commemorative items I’ve collected for whatever various conferences, ceremonies and recognitions, often representative of the event or the locale.
One of the cleverest giveaways I’ve heard about is this: the Arizona Diamondbacks are giving “snow globes” away at this Saturday’s game against the Washington Nationals.
Snow globes in the middle of our Arizona summer?
Well, they aren’t your typical snow globes. They are haboob globes!!!
Instead of shaking them to unleash snow blizzard conditions inside the globe, Arizonans will be able to shake their haboob globes and get an instant dust storm inside their globes. Last July, a haboob rolled through downtown Phoenix and caused a power-outage delay at a D-Backs game.
Now THAT is a representative giveaway.
