First Ever Friendship Circle Snowman Building Competition

On Thursday, February 10th, local Detroit businesses are hanging up their suit coats for snow suits and supporting The Friendship Circle in the 2011 Snowman Building Competition.

Quicken Loans, North American Bancard, Identity PR and Universal McCann are just a few of the companies that will gather at Barnum Park in Birmingham in a quest to construct the most unique and creative snow-creation.

During most work days, these highly successful businesses practice their public relations, accounting and operational skills. However, for the next two months, they will put down the pen and pick up a shovel to begin training in the following areas: spherical snow rolling, facial construction and ice block architecture. The winning company will be determined by The Friendship Circle community via a facebook-based vote that will run from February 10th through the 11th.

Not only is this event a great excuse for adults to play in the snow (during work hours!), it is also an innovative way for The Friendship Circle to garner more corporate support beyond the typical event sponsorship.

If you are a business that is interested in participating, please contact Lauren at (248) 788-7878 x. 202 or [email protected]. Nominal entry fee per company applies.

  • Despite the frigid weather, the sun was out and it was a fun time!  It was a little daunting at first because this was NOT packing snow–it just was like powder in our hands!  Looking at our next door neighbors with their trailer full of barrels of water and blow torches to melt and pack the snow was nothing less than intimidating!  Here we show up with our $1.99 squirt bottles of water (only two, plus one supplied to us to be exact)!  Off to the hardware store to purchase a much larger sprayer and many gallons of water!  Once underway, it was a lot of water, a lot of packing snow and a lot of laughs!  Thanks to my UM team for making it such a fun time!  I think we did AWESOME with the resources we had!  All involved put in their best efforts on all teams!
