Missouri PPD wins Caribbean cruise in Outer Banks 20th anniversary sweepstakes – Brief Article

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Outer Banks marked the year-long celebration of its 20th anniversary by awarding Tammy Davault, owner of Midwest Sports & Specialty Advertising, Inc., in Marble Hill, Mo., a custom-chartered sailing cruise as the winner of Outer Banks’ anniversary sweepstakes.

Davault and three guests will select a Caribbean destination of their choice for a cruise any time in the next year. Outer Banks awarded the prize to Davault on October 30. Davault was selected from a random drawing of more than 8,500 entries submitted throughout the 2003 year.

“Wow! I can’t believe this has happened. Outer Banks has always been a favorite of ours. It’s really a fantastic shirt. Since we opened 10 years ago we’ve always used Outer Banks products and will continue to use them. I’m really looking forward to taking this trip as we’ve never been to the Caribbean before,” Davault said.

The Outer Banks brand is celebrating 20 years in the promotional apparel market, and marking the birthday of one of the industry’s best-selling polo shirts. The cruise sweepstakes was just one celebratory event in an exciting year. Additional prizes given out throughout 2003 in celebration of the anniversary were four Escape sailboats, as well as 20th anniversary Outer Banks shirts and other giveaways.
