Last week, Agency Entourage got into the holiday spirit when we mingled with hundreds of other Dallas/Fort Worth industry professionals at the DFW Jingle Mingle 2012 at Gilley’s Dallas. The Jingle Mingle is a collaborative holiday event that benefits to the DREAM Fund; this year they raised $10,000 for the foundation! We danced the night away listening to The Walton Stout Band play that funky music and at one point, we even took the microphone and sang with them on stage!
Throughout the event, numerous screens were set up to project live tweets (#DFWJingleMingle) and AE made sure everyone knew we were there! We weren’t the only ones tweeting throughout the night, there was a new tweet every 30 seconds.
You can’t go to a holiday party and not get your picture taken with Santa and his new sleigh (a bright red Camaro)! We did just that thanks to Chevrolet, The Fan Booth and our goofy smiles. Chevrolet held a contest with all the photos to win a week with the Camaro; to enter, you had to tweet your picture from the event and who wouldn’t want a week with Santa’s new sleigh?
Digital People and Pic Flips let guests show off their entertaining and creative side by making a flip book! We had seven seconds when the camera started rolling to be as silly as we can be with a candy cane, giant heart glasses and a feather boa!
In between eating Nothing Bundt Cakes and tasty sliders from the buffet, we tossed bean bags for a chance to win an iPod Nano, guessed the sponsors logos (which we dominated) and entered a raffle to win awesome prizes.
We even got our picture on the Dallas News website! It was a great night for AE; we danced, tweeted, enjoyed a lot of food and most importantly, we mingled with some of the most influential and creative industry professionals in Dallas!
