BlueOut Knoxville: Win $5000 for Your Favorite Charity

Thursday, September 29, BlueOut Knoxville  will be celebrating all things blue: Bluegrass, Blue Moon, Pabst Blue Ribbon, BBQ and Bleu Cheese Cole Slaw. Why? To give $5,000 to Knoxville’s favorite charity.

First, nominate your favorite charity. It’s fast and free and you have until  August 31 to do so.

Then get all your friends to vote for it by texting, tweeting, and voting by online poll. Each person can cast three votes by using all three mediums. On September 1, the top three charities with the most votes will be named the blue ribbon finalists.

Between Sept. 1 and Sept. 29, you can cast more votes for $1 each–all of which will be going towards the grand winner on Sept. 29.

If you want to attend the party you can  buy your ticket here (limit: 200 for the event) for  $50 a ticket. You can also follow the event via Facebook and Twitter.

How did it all get started?

BlueOut Knoxville was born out of a collaboration between two of Knoxville’s most involved social media creative marketing firms. During Social Slam ‘11, Tori Rose of Blue Media Boutique and Jeremy Floyd of Bluegill Creative discussed opportunities to break the traditionally competitive mold of local marketing firms and consider opportunities to work together for good. A few weeks later they reached out to Margaret Slattery at Blue Frog Creations to bring a video element to the table.

Thanks, Margaret
