Events as Marketing Opportunities

Marketing
4 MIN READ

We believe that events, when done well, can be fantastic marketing opportunities. Events heighten your company or organization’s visibility within the community, place your business in the spotlight, and show attendees a glimpse into who you are and what you do.

Did you know that Mantooth Company used to go by the name “Mantooth Marketing & Events?” In Mantooth’s first 25 years, we executed well over 250 events in Northern Colorado. While events are no longer a large part of what we do, we still love to help our clients throw a good party every once in a while. ;)

We believe that events, when done well, can be fantastic marketing opportunities. Events heighten your company or organization’s visibility within the community, place your business in the spotlight, and show attendees a glimpse into who you are and what you do. Events often lead to heightened media exposure, increased lead generation, and more brand recognition – take a peek at our website’s new Clients in the News page to see what we mean!. 

Events also often offer the ability to cross-promote with a local nonprofit, which gives your business the chance to do good in the community while also having a total blast. If you hope to increase community involvement, events are the way to go!

We could go on and on about how much we love events… or, we could let a few of our clients’ recent events speak for themselves! Read on to learn more about the ways our clients are reaching the community through parties, celebrations, open houses, tournaments and more.

Houska Automotive Celebrates Community and Service at 70th Anniversary Celebration

Mantooth Co. is truly honored to celebrate how our clients impact our community. Houska Automotive celebrated 70 years of serving Northern Colorado by rocking with hundreds of guests to The Burroughs on September 17. Staff grilled hot dogs and whipped up cotton candy for the kids while the Tacos El Diablo food truck and a Gelato & aMore gelato cart served the remaining hungry mouths. As an added bonus, Fort Collins council member Shirley Peel was on hand to officially proclaim September 17, 2022 Houska Automotive Day! 

We’re especially proud of how the Houskas have been stellar examples of how to meaningfully participate in charitable endeavors. For example, at this Garage Band event, Houska Automotive requested food or monetary donations for the UCHealth Family Medicine Center food pantry and raised over $10,000 in monetary donations and almost 1,200 pounds of food!

The Houskas love to raise money by having a good time and doing good at the same time – what a great example to us all!

RBC Wealth Management – Greyrock Wealth Advisors shows support for Professional Fire Fighters Foundation

On September 8 at Fox Acres Golf Club in Red Feather Lakes, the Fort Collins-based group of RBC Wealth Management advisors hosted their 6th Annual Greyrock Invitational Golf Tournament. This year’s event raised $9,000 for the nonprofit Colorado Professional Fire Fighters Foundation, whose mission is to provide aid and support to Colorado firefighters and their families who are victims of tragedy.

RBC Wealth Management – Greyrock Wealth Advisors’ clients and invited firefighters spent a gorgeous day golfing while raising funds for this nonprofit organization. Funds raised will go directly to help widows/widowers and orphans whose everyday financial needs are sadly often overlooked.

A Vintage Affair Wine Tasting Benefitted Pathways

175 people sipped wines – from dozens of vendors – to their heart’s content at the 20th Annual A Vintage Affair, held earlier this month in the beautiful Grays Peak Health Center at Front Range Community College. This benefit, created by Wilbur’s Total Beverage, grossed over $60,000 for Pathways, the region’s first stand-alone inpatient care center.   

Pathways, Northern Colorado’s leading provider of hospice, palliative care, grief and loss counseling services, has now opened its 12-bed, stand-alone hospice inpatient care center and is accepting patients. Located at 317 Carpenter Road (between Fort Collins and Loveland), the intentionally built Pathways Inpatient Care Center (PICC) will provide high-quality, compassionate hospice care in a home-like setting to patients needing hospital-level treatment.
