Welcome to the first blog from The Eric Idea Agency!
OK, summer is gone, and it wasn’t the same of course. We missed the fairs and carnivals and parties and outdoor performances and baseball games and village stores and restaurants and other wonderful and joyous summer traditions that were taken away from us. Most of all, we missed the interaction with our friends. We needed good news. Well, guess what? We had some. Yes, really!
In late August, The Eric Idea Agency hosted the first Capital District Sports Women of the Year Awards Event. It was originally scheduled for May at a performing arts venue, but “you know what” got in the way. (I won’t dignify it by name). A total of 13 female student-athletes from high schools and colleges in the region were recognized and honored for outstanding achievements in academics, athletics, and community service. These young ladies, (12 of whom were seniors) lost out on post-season awards, team banquets, playoff events, proms, traditional graduation ceremonies, and saying goodbye to their teammates and coaches.
So, it was important that “it” wound not prevent us from providing them with a richly deserved evening of celebration. After our postponement from May and the fact we could not hold the event at a performing arts facility, we provided the event at a hotel in August with the guidelines and limited attendance in place. It was so nice to see the faces behind the names, meeting these stars in person. Read more and check out our photo gallery at CDSWOY.COM.
I hope you know of people and businesses who would be interested in supporting CDSWOY, and there are donation and advertising and sponsorship pages linked at the website.
So, yes, there was good news. And it was great to see smiles behind the mask, smiles that will last with all of us and you, when you read about these remarkable young ladies. Thanks for reading and thanks for your time. Keep smiling!
