Rally Session #2
Date: October 5, 2022
Location: Resting Pulse Brewing Company

Happy Thursday everyone!

Thank you all for a wonderful rally session and birthday celebration yesterday! 😊

We are just a few weeks in and have made amazing progress toward our campaign goal! I spoke with Jason earlier today and he mentioned that we passed last year's campaign total! WOWZA! Our campaign total currently stands at $239,410.

For those that missed our session today, here are a few updates:
•Golf Tournament Notes: At yesterday's Rally session, we went over the specifics of the Golf Tournament. For those that missed, please note that the Golf Tournament will be Tuesday, May 2, 2023 at Robert Trent Jones at Grand National and will host a morning flight with a shotgun start at 8am and an afternoon flight with a shotgun start at 1pm.
o Note: If you sell a sponsorship that falls under the 'Golf Tournament' category between now and our next Rally session, you will be entered into a drawing to receive a lead for another sponsorship. We will be drawing 5 names total.
o Shoutout to Billy Plummer, Antione Harvis, Rosanna McGinnis, and Terry Fulks for securing '2022 Event' sponsorships last week. I will be emailing you all a lead as your reward.
•We celebrated our Campaign Leaders of the Week: Congratulations again to Tabatha White of Alabama Power ($7,432); Antione Harvis of Wise Guys Moving ($5,106); and Chris Clark of East Alabama Health ($4,075) for being our Campaign Leaders last week. Keep up the great work!
•We enjoyed a Flip Cup Competition: Congratulations to Tabatha White, Nathaniel Jackson, Jordan Kelly, Joseph Shaw, Sara Carrington, Sharon Patterson, Erica Harrison, and Kristy Butler for winning the challenge. They all received a Resting Pulse drink token for joining the fun. If you want to see the fun for yourself, check out the OCC Reach 2022 Facebook page.

We hope you all will join us for our next Rally Session on Wednesday, October 12th at noon at Twice Baked (Address: 909 S Railroad Ave, Opelika, AL 36801).

Best - Mackenzie Poole


Rally Session #1
Date: September 28, 2022
Location: Baumhower's

Wow! Thank you all for such a wonderful Rally Session at Baumhower's this afternoon!

We truly appreciate the enthusiasm and hard work that each of you have brought to the REACH campaign thus far!

Speaking of which, I am excited to announce our campaign total is currently at $198,093! I think we can get to $200,000 by the end of the week - what do you guys say?!

For those that missed our session today, here are a few updates:
•Understanding what a Rally Session is: We use Rally Sessions as a way to celebrate the hard work of each of our volunteers. We also will spend each week deep diving into specific sponsorships as well as hosting friendly competitions to receive leads and rewards throughout the campaign. At this specific rally session, we reviewed the '2022 Events' which include Keep The Cheer Here Social Campaign; Secret Santa Gift Exchange; Snopelika; and the Snopelika Parade.
o Note: If you sell a sponsorship that falls under the '2022 Event' category between now and our next Rally session, you will be entered into a drawing to receive a lead for another sponsorship. We will be drawing 5 names total.
• We celebrated our Campaign Leaders of the Week: Congratulations again to Antione Harvis of Wise Guys Moving ($20,997); Billy Plummer & Barbi Argicola of Agricola Law ($19,510); and Brooke Kastner of AO Tourism ($11,500). Keep up the great work! And for those of you still working on securing your first sponsorship, please do not be discouraged by these numbers. As I mentioned in the meeting, we have only reached out to 97 of our 950 members. That is just 10% of our membership so there is plenty of room to secure sponsorships and reach your individual and team goals for the campaign.
• We enjoyed a Snow Man Building Minute to Win It Competition: Congratulations to John Gwin; Barbi Agricola; Antione Harvis; Jonathan Isbell; Erica Harrison; Jenna Morrow; Elizabeth Milner; and Garner Martin for winning the challenge. I will be sending you each a lead to a sponsorship as your reward. If you want to see the fun for yourself, check out the OCC Reach 2022 Facebook page.

We hope you all will join us for our next Rally Session on Wednesday, October 5th at noon at Resting Pulse Brewing Company (Address: 714 1st Ave, Opelika, AL 36801). Also, MY BIRTHDAY 😊 We will be celebrating accordingly. Woohoo!
