On Saturday July 12th, 2008, AmericanMuscle held its annual company picnic and charity fund raiser. Once again, this year’s charity foundation was Homes For Our Troops which is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping those people that give selflessly to their country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries.
This organization is committed to assisting those who have returned from their service to our country severely injured, and their immediate families, by raising donations of money, building materials, and professional labor to build a new home or adapt an existing home for handicapped accessibility.
- Sales Donation (% Of Sales During The Event) – $3615.36
- Additional Company Donation – $500.00
- Phone Donations – $ 115.00
- Grand Total – $ 4230.36
The Obligatory Big Check Picture
In addition to our annual charity fundraiser, this event was also our annual company picnic! A variety of fun activities, massive food consumption of previously unthinkable proportions, and shenanigans pursued including “American Gladiator” style jousting, expert mechanical bull riding, dunk tank dunking of bosses, horseshoeing, a limbo contest how low can you go?, and of course the crème de la crème of picnic activities…the office employee versus warehouse employee TUG OF WAR!
So check out the pictures of the AmericanMuscle crew cutting loose below, and keep an eye out for next year’s fundraiser picnic!
AmericanMuscle.com Pimp Brick’s Ride Contest – $300 In Pimpage For Your Ride!
The Winner Has Been Announced!
AmericanMuscle’s Pimp Brick’s Ride Contest received over 60 entries and let me tell you, Brick was truly impressed. You went all out and did not make this an easy decision for him. In fact, we had to create a 2nd place position just to help him pick a 1st place winner. In the end though, one entry stood out among all entries with just the sheer amount of time and effort put into it.
And now on to the winners:
- 1st Prize – Angelo S. of Chantilly VA:
Angelo took our contest several steps further then the rest by creating an entire website dedicated to Pimping Brick’s Ride which he dubbed “The Brickstang“. The sheer amount of time and effort with an outstanding attention to detail that went into the website is what really closed the deal for him on this one.Click to check out the Brickstang website!
