Starbucks Starters

Download Flyer

Detailed Description CARES Team stands at the main gate, passing out free Starbucks to residents on their way out in the morning.  If you purchase a to-go container of coffee, Starbucks will supply you with cups, sweeteners, creamers, stirrers, and lids for free. Frame a sign that says “Free Coffee” (available in the event toolkit) so that residents don’t try to pay you. Set up a small table and hand out pre-poured cups of coffee along with the “fixings” to residents as they drive up. Be sure to sort items in advance so as not to hold up traffic. (To save time, you might pre-package the sweeteners, creamers, stirrer, etc. in a small plastic bag).

The Cooper River Bridge Run

bridge run fest am 1

Kristen & Brent are our CARES Team at The Boulevard in Charleston, SC. They recently hosted a couple of really neat events centered around a big, annual event that goes on in their community: The Cooper River Bridge Run. Here's the lowdown:

They hosted a morning event and an evening event!

bridge run fest am 2

The morning event included handing out water bottles, bananas, headbands, and shirts with their property's logo on them. It was a great marketing opportunity for their Greystar property because they handed out thousands of items with the property's logo. They also hired an '80s band (a big hit that scored the team and the property some time on the 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. news) to play while the runners were waiting for the race to start.

6:00 a.m. '80s dance party anyone?

Then, Kristen and Brent hosted a relaxing evening event on race day for runners and their families to enjoy on The Boulevard property. They had a low-country boil for dinner, complete with a small acoustic band (made up of people they knew). This was also another great marketing opportunity for the property (and CARES) because people could come in, see the property, and experience first-hand what CARES has to offer. Not to mention the biggest impact…

Getting to connect with tons of people from around the community!

How could you get more involved in your city's community? Is there an annual event that happens in your backyard or one that you could easily set up a tent/station at?

bridge run fest night

What about marketing for your apartment community by representing them? This Greystar Property Manager, Regional Manager, Senior Managing Director of Real Estate, and more "high-ups" really enjoyed this event. They gave public kudos for it and have asked that it happen more often!

Volleyball Tournament

Volleyball Tourney

Download Flyer

CARES Teams... it's time to get competitive! Let's host a volleyball tournament! If volleyball (or sports of any kind) isn't your thing, here's what you need to know to get started:

  • Set the number of players per team. You can play with anywhere between 2 and 6 per side.
  • Here's a site where you can build your own easy-to-download tournament bracket. Choose if you will have single or double elimination.
  • Recruit a volunteer to referee.
  • Decide if your residents will need to bring their own teams or if you will pair people up to make new teams. Or, give them the option to do either (you want to give new people who don't have friends for a team an opportunity to still participate).
  • Provide water and/or Gatorade for your participants, and if possible, your fans as well. If it's hot, you can also freeze cheap wash cloths in a cooler and hand them out to cool off your players.
  • To make it fun, provide each team with custom bandannas. You can find some crazy colors/patterns online.
  • If your budget allows, provide a "free" concession stand with drinks/snacks.

This is a great chance to involve people from your church or friends who can help you put on the event. Don't be afraid to ask for help!

Eat and Exercise

Get Healthy

Download flyer

Make healthy into a social event by hosting a workout class + nutrition presentation at your apartment community. Whether it's yoga, zumba, weight lifting, or anything else you can imagine, the goal is to provide a fun experience for your residents and include some get-to-know-you time before or after.

A bonus: provide iced towels after the class to help your residents cool down.

CARES Team Jon and Elizabeth in Nashville, TN, hosted their own Eat & Exercise event that was a huge hit with the residents. March is National Nutrition Month, so this event could be a timely tie-in.

McGlathery

For those teams with limited on-site meeting space, this event could easily be held at a nearby gym or YMCA.

We left you plenty of space on the flyer so you can personalize this event for your own community. You can download it here.
