Did you know that Duane Reade has sponsored lots of fun NYC events this summer?
Just recently, I was invited to check out an event for MLB Fanfest where Duane Reade was giving out pairs of tickets to lucky fans on the streets of NYC who were sporting MLB garb and said the magic words “I want to be drafted by Duane Reade” . To tell you the truth, I am not the “biggest fan”. I have a lot to learn about sports, but since my daughters are all involved in sports, I thought this mom needs to broaden her horizons and see what knowledge I could gain from die-hard fans.
While fans were able to win tickets to MLB FanFest, you could also wait online to get a VIP tour from some of the Cave Dwellers. One by one, fans came by to get drafted and it was fun to see the excitement as fans searched for those with the Duane Reade shirt.
Here is a lucky winner. You can see what fun they were having! They were jumping up and down with excitement!
To top it off, I was able to meet Yankees Pitcher David Robertson. He was coming out from hanging out with the Cave Dwellers.
After all the excitement and when all the free tickets were handed out, we headed into the MLB FanCave for a sneak peak behind the scenes.
Cave Dwellers April and Aaron gave us a fact learning tour about all aspects of this fun hang out called the Fan Cave. To view all my photos of the day and my experience at the MLB Fan Cave, please visit here.
I think it is great that a store that has such a presence in NYC teams up with other NYC happenings to offer its customers an added treat as a way of saying thank you. I also appreciate how Duane Reade can serve as a resource for fun NYC happenings. If I am shopping for my go-to items and I find out about an event that is taking place, that is a bonus!
