Gresco Celebrates 15th Annual Fall Fest in Florida Warehouse
On Friday, October 18th, 2019, 427 customers, exhibitors, and employees gathered in Gresco’s Florida warehouse for the 15th Annual Fall Fest! Exhibitors promptly arrived beginning at 7am and made their way to the check-in tables where they, along with customers who arrived later that morning, were introduced to a new registration system. Guests were able to quickly type in their name in a digital kiosk and print their badge within seconds or even register themselves onsite.
Customers who planned to arrive prior to 10am were included in the Early Bird Raffle for a chance to win a new TV. Shortly after the raffle cut-off, Gresco Technology Solutions’ UAS team conducted a drone demo near the wire shed. Guests were able to view live aerial footage from the drone on a TV screen and inquire about the aircraft and its capabilities for their day-to-day operations.
This year, Gresco added a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital charity booth to collect donations. Everyone was welcome and encouraged to donate toward the $5,000 fundraising goal. Customers had the option of receiving a raffle ticket for every $10 that was donated for a chance to win a Traeger Grill.
After many generous donations by customers, exhibitors, and employees, we are proud to say that we reached our goal with a total of $5,077 in donations! In addition, Gresco agreed to match all proceeds that were made that day. Thanks to you, we will be donating a total of $10,154 to St. Jude’s! We are amazed and humbled by your generosity towards this charity, especially because this is the first year we have partnered with St. Jude’s.
Year after year, Gresco’s Fall Fest becomes bigger and better than the year before – more exhibitor booth spaces are included, more customers are able to attend, and more fun events are held. However, we recognize that “more” is not possible without our customers and our partners. We’re grateful for the planning, the registrations, the setup, and the coordination of it all each year that make this event worth your while. Your constant support in making this year’s Fall Fest yet another successful event is inspiring to us. Until next year!
