VanDerGinst Law Debuts at Cedar Rapids Farmers’ Market as Presenting Day Sponsor
Last Saturday, May 26th, marked opening day for the Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers’ Market, one of the largest of its kind in the Midwest, and VanDerGinst Law was there to ring the opening bell as the Presenting Day Sponsor. With booths at the market’s entrance on 5th Street and 3rd Avenue and another booth located a couple blocks down 3rd Avenue just before 3rd Street, VanDerGinst Law joined the nearly 200 vendors and 14,000 attendees with games, prizes, safety information and more.
“We thought the Farmers’ Market would be a great opportunity for patrons to gain awareness of our firm’s name and know that we are in the area and are able to help them if they have experienced a personal injury,” said the firm’s CEO Dennis VanDerGinst.
Shortly after the market opened, a line had already formed in front of one of the booths with adults and kids alike eager to take a turn on the Spin To Win prize wheel for a chance to win a variety of prizes including drawstring totes, first-aid kits, light-up yo-yos and fans, a popular favorite among the crowd as temps reached the 90’s.
At the other booth stations, parents were able to sign up and receive a voucher for a free bike helmet as part of the firm’s Hard Headed Kids program, which seeks to provide bike safety helmets at no cost to children in the community. “We’ve proudly given away thousands of bike helmets since the program’s inception,” notes VanDerGinst. “Our goal is to create as many ‘hard-headed’ kids as possible!”
The traffic at all three booths was nonstop from the market’s opening at 7:30 to its closing at noon. “We hope folks had a great time stopping by our booth and learning more about our firm,” said VanDerGinst.
The firm’s sponsorship includes a booth presence (located at 3rd Street & 3rd Avenue) for the remainder of the season. The next market is Saturday, June 2.
