Deion Sanders has become the very first Atlanta Falcon to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Surrounded by his family, friends, and celebrities such as Chili from TLC and the legendary Keith Sweat, Deion celebrated his induction in high style by hosting the Black & Red Celebratory Gala at 200 Peachtree in Atlanta, GA. Event sponsors included Grey goose vodka, Sean John, Gigaré Collection, Kilwin’s Chocolates, ASEA Water, and Signazon.com. Proceeds from the event benefited Sanders’ non-profit organization, The PrimeTime Association, a mentoring program for youth.
Arranging this event was Atlanta’s own Foxx Entertainment Group, Inc. Foxx President and CEO Tee Foxx knew that this VIP event required nothing less than the best, and she wanted to make it unique and memorable for Deion and the attendees. Guests were given a variety of “swag,” ranging from bottles of Grey Goose vodka to Gigaré ties and Sean John sunglasses. In addition, having acquired 100 hand-blown glass champagne flutes, Foxx wanted to highlight Sanders’ legendary achievement during the event.
Foxx contacted the Signazon.com, a national online sign printing company headquartered in Dallas, TX, to inquire about producing her order. Signazon.com specializes in clear decals and white-ink printing, both of which were used for this job. “When my team brought the sponsorship to me, I knew we needed to get involved,” says Nicole Chilton, Marketing Manager at Signazon.com, “We’re based in Dallas, so we’re loyal to Deion, a former Cowboy, plus we have the capability for white ink printing on a clear material, which is exactly what Tee needed and is something a lot of printers can’t do.” Foxx worked with Signazon’s Corporate Event Management team to coordinate the event. They agreed that clear static clings would be best choice for the champagne flutes. With a design that included a profile of Sanders in uniform and his legendary number “21,” the clings gave a unique and custom touch to the glasses and were easy to remove after the event since they have no adhesive.
