ForMyReason customizes Wristbands for Military

Local company ForMyReason, a provider of customizable silicone wristbands, announced partnerships with Soldiers‚ Angels, Friends of Freedom and Hope for the Warriors.  ForMyReason is selling camouflage and red, white and blue wristbands in the name of these organizations, to assist them with giving back to veterans, current service members and their families.  With each wristband order, 20 percent of the sale is donated to the named organization.

“We have created our customizable wristbands with charitable causes top-of-mind,” said ForMyReason Co-founder, Lisa Youngblood. “It is an honor to work with these organizations that contribute to the health and well-being of our country‚s past and present men and women of the armed forces, and their families.  We are excited to be offering a way for others in the community to show their support, as well.”

When a charitable cause partners with ForMyReason, a dedicated fundraiser web page is added to the ForMyReason website and a direct link to the fundraiser page to place on the cause‚s website is provided, both at no cost to the organization.  ForMyReason has forged partnerships with more than 10 charitable causes, in less than six months of business.

In addition to their online involvement, ForMyReason also participates on-site at charitable events, selling, or in many cases, donating wristbands to the cause at-hand.

Just in time for Memorial Day, ForMyReason attended Friends of Freedom’s 1st Annual Night Stalker 5K Walk for Warriors on May 18 and passed out complimentary wristbands featuring a photo frame that contained the Friends of Freedom logo to participants.  Funds raised from event ticket sales benefitted the No One Left Behind (NOLB) Center, which provides a place for veterans to find encouragement, advice and training, and entertainment and activities to help with the transition from military to civilian life.

Free customized wristbands were also provided to Hope for the Warriors and Soldiers‚ Angels for them to distribute for Memorial Day.

Memorial Day concert in Greer

Kierland Developers Host Memorial Day Weekend Concert In Greer

Escape the 100-degree weather this Memorial Day weekend and head to the White Mountains for Hidden Meadow Ranch’s Boots, BBQ and Beer concert on Sunday, May 27th.

Providing first-rate accommodations and service is second nature at Hidden Meadow Ranch. The owners, Tim and Casey Bolinger of Greenbrier Southwest Corporation, were integrally involved in the development of Kierland in northeast Phoenix and The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain community near Tucson. Combining their resort and development expertise with their interests in horseback riding, snow skiing and fly fishing, the Bolingers and their team, led by General Manager Jane Lenci, have created a luxury lodging experience at Hidden Meadow Ranch that complements the naturally beautiful, secluded setting, while providing a range of recreational activities and high level of service and comfort in all four seasons.

Starting at 5 p.m., a limited number of concert goers can enjoy burgers, baby back ribs, chicken and hot dogs, along with unlimited non-alcoholic drinks for just $50, including the live music performance. Beer and cocktails are extra. Memorial Weekend Lodge guests at Hidden Meadow Ranch get all of this included in their stay. After the barbeque, Arrowheart, an all-female country group from Arizona, will take to the stage.

“Nothing beats barbeque and great live music on Memorial Day weekend,” said Jane Lenci, General Manager of Hidden Meadow Ranch. “The ladies of Arrowheart bring a country flare that we love up here at Hidden Meadow Ranch. Now if we could just get them to write a song about the Ranch!”

The popularity of Arrowheart is rising rapidly in the Southwest. The three lead singers, Alexis Driscoll, Erin Beaty & Julia Frys are known for their vocal harmonies and great live performances. They are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album.

Guests who want to make a weekend out of it can book a stay at Hidden Meadow Ranch for Memorial Day weekend. For guests who stay in our 900-square-foot luxurious log cabins, the concert and BBQ will be included at no extra cost.
