To mark the 10th anniversary of Imperial at Kearl Lake, Balsom Communications teamed up with the team at Imperial to help them plan an event to celebrate the occasion and to show appreciation to the community.
On December 10th, Centerfire Place buzzed with anticipation as fans, employees, and community members gathered to witness not only a thrilling hockey game but also a joyful holiday celebration.
To commemorate this milestone, an Oil Barons hockey game and Santa Skate were symbolic, blending the dynamic spirit of the Oil Barons with the energy and resilience that define Imperial.
Imperial’s dedication to community involvement was prominently emphasized during the event. The ideal partner for Imperial, the local non-profit organization, Centre of Hope, was chosen to underscore the significance of generosity and solidarity during this season. Attendees were encouraged to bring gently-used winter items or make a financial donation.
The festivities kicked off with pre-game events that set the tone for the evening. The Imperial welcome reception had everything to give the attendees a glimpse of the holiday celebration: a branded cake and cupcakes, a photo booth, balloons, and door prizes.
As the hockey game was about to begin, Imperial took center ice for a formal recognition ceremony. The Imperial team, clad in jerseys emblazoned with the company logo, was recognized as the game sponsor and a donor to the Centre of Hope.
As the final buzzer sounded, Santa Claus and Mrs. Clause invited everyone to enjoy a skate with them, while the Imperial team was distributing hot chocolate to everyone.
Balsom Communications supported Imperial in event planning, vendor booking and management, graphic design, community invitations, and event management on the day of the celebration.
Cheers to another decade of success and shared victories!
