Event Overview

Eat, Drink and Be Scary is a Halloween community party open to the community and business leaders to cultivate new relationships, sample the best of local Savannah food and drink, dance and be entertained.

Eat, Drink and Be Scary is an unprecedented event acknowledging the invaluable impact our local community has had on the success of Goodwill’s mission of assisting people with disabilities and other barriers to employment to live independently and become employed. By increasing the public’s understanding of what Goodwill’s mission achieves and providing a fun and innovative event, we aim to retain and find new supporters of Goodwill’s mission. In 2016, Goodwill served more than 6,900 people in Southeast Georgia through its employment and career development programs, and aided 1,201 people in finding employment in the local community. Key communities serviced include the economically disadvantaged, military veterans, individuals with criminal histories, at-risk youth and the developmentally disabled.

The event will provide sponsors and supporters with opportunities to access new customers and business partners. These include:

Branding: Event Sponsor Placement

Inclusion in 2017 quarterly campaigns leading up to Eat, Drink and Be Scary week (press releases, traditional and social media advertising and onsite event placement). Visibility and company advertising to 2,000+ individuals.

Community Recognition: Advocating Goodwill’s mission

Recognition as an advocate of Goodwill’s nonprofit mission and strengthening Southeast Georgia’s workforce. Align your business with Goodwill—a brand that is recognized by consumers as the #1 brand that does the most good.

Meets Business Objectives: Cultivate Relationships 

An affordable local event for sponsors to use in the cultivation of relationships with prospective clients, employees, vendors and partners.
