TopSpin 2014

MKTG INC and TopSpin, a national philanthropic group dedicated to empowering America’s youth through education, brought together members of the sports, media and entertainment industries on Wednesday, December 10th for the sixth annual TopSpin charity table tennis tournament at Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.

Dozens of celebrities, including current and former athletes including John Starks, John Wallace and Zab Judah, supported #TopSpin2014, which is produced pro-bono each year through our MKTG4GOOD initiative. In addition to world-class table tennis, the event featured three DJ’s, 15 food stations, top shelf bars, a silent auction and much more.

Proceeds benefit youth and education-focused programs in the New York metropolitan area. This year the money raised went to Horizons – BFS, A Better Chance, Wishbone, New Heights and Prep for Prep. With over 1,250 in attendance, the event raised $400k for these valuable programs.

Smirnoff Ice Wraps Up “Ladies with Game” Series

with one comment

Ladies With Game2

Football season may have started September 4th, but the real fun kicked off when Smirnoff Ice launched the Ladies with Game Tailgate tour in NYC. Hudson Mercantile played host to a packed tailgate bash, where attendees enjoyed cocktails made from the Smirnoff Ice portfolio, including the Screwdriver Sangria and the Preparada, a Southwestern favorite made from fresh fruits, chamoy (a popular condiment in Mexican cuisine), and Smirnoff Ice Green Apple. Of course, it wouldn’t be a tailgate without the right bites, and there was no shortage of sliders, mac and cheese, buffalo tater tots, and chicken and waffle bites.

DJ Stef Nava provided high energy tunes as guests challenged each other to corn hole, giant Jenga and a backyard tire football toss competition. For those not ready to get their heels dirty, DryBar provided blowouts and Ami V and Ria Lopez gave custom manicures to prepare them for their photo booth session. Everyone knows that a tailgate is nothing without a proper host to make everyone feel at home, so singer and reality TV personality Jessie James Decker was in attendance to lead the festivities and show off her impressive arm in the football toss challenge. It appears she’s been practicing in the backyard with her husband.

Smirnoff Ice also brought the tailgate party tour to fans across the country over the past two months with help from other celebrity hosts like Keshia Knight Pulliam, Charissa Thompson, Jennifer Hale, and Lindsay Gladden. Nail Taxi also helped to provide manicures throughout the tour while attendees danced to beats from DJ Eskada in DC, DJ Rasyrious in Atlanta and Nashville, DJ Lezlee in San Diego, DJ Beverly Skillz in New Orleans, and DJ K Stonez in Charlotte. Guests were able to come away from each event with a great new look, fun memories with friends, and some great food and drink ideas to host tailgate parties of their own throughout football season.
