Ambassador Elite program sponsors turkey bowling event, scores a strike with educators
Hardworking educators at North Las Vegas’ Cheyenne High School were treated to an afternoon of laughs and each scored their own thanksgiving turkey courtesy of Appreciation Financial’s Ambassador Elite program – but there was a catch – Principal April Key wasn’t going to let the coveted poultry go home easy – she required her staff to face off in a turkey bowling match to earn the Thanksgiving birds.
Keys filled the school’s cafeteria with cheering students while staff took a turn rolling and tossing a frozen turkey down makeshift lanes in an attempt to knock down real bowling pins.
While it may sound simple, getting a 20 pound frozen turkey into pins dozens of feet away is no easy task. Appreciation Financial President and CEO Terry Kennedy cheered as staff aimed for strikes. Equally as difficult was rounding up nearly 50 frozen turkeys for the event. “I’m honored we could pull this off for the amazing staff at Cheyenne High School,” said Kennedy. “Finding this many turkeys that were just right proved to be a challenge but that’s what the Ambassador Elite program is all about – we come through for school leaders so they can focus on the important work of educating students.”
Also in attendance to be a part of the fun was Appreciation Financial Senior Agency Manager Tony Polise. “We gave the turkeys to the caring staff here and in turn they will be sharing with their families at holiday events,” said Polise. “That is the best part about this fun event,” he added.
After an afternoon of laughs, nearly 50 Cheyenne High School staff went home with the key ingredient to their family’s thanksgiving feast courtesy of Appreciation Financial. “We are serious about giving back to the communities we do business in,” said Kennedy. “Appreciation is not just our name, it’s our culture and there’s no better time to show that than the holidays.”
