Delivering Smiles

Delivering Smiles at the Ball Park

July 5, 2013

Free Cheryl’s Cookies and Popcorn Factory Popcorn Balls!

Delivering Smiles at the Mets GameWe’ve all heard the expression, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Well, that is especially true at baseball games, where a hot dog can cost up to seven dollars. That is why we at 1-800-Flowers.com decided to hand out pallets of free Cheryl’s cookies and popcorn balls from The Popcorn Factory. As part of our Summer of Smiles Campaign, we sent a Smiles team to Citi Field on Tuesday, July 2nd, and spent the night delivering smiles to baseball fans. After watching the first five innings of the game, our team gathered at the main entrance, ready to brighten up the days of the many fans that were leaving the ball park.

Although it got a bit hectic at some points, the shocked and thankful reactions of the fans encouraged us to work hard. We stayed until the very end so that we could give away cookies and popcorn to the dedicated fans who sat through the rain to see the entire game. By the end of the day, we were able to put a smile on the faces of thousands of people. To top it all off, the Mets came away with a win! Now, that’s what I call a great day.

He soon became one of the wealthiest people in Taiwan and, attributing his wealth to the Pachira plant, he dubbed it the Money Tree.
