Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl Trophy at Elk Grove Farmer’s Market
In celebration of the start of the college football season, the official Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl trophy is making an appearance at the Elk Grove Farmer’s Market on Saturday, August 31, 2019.
Residents and members of the community will have the opportunity to view and take photos of the official Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl trophy and player’s helmet, and can also enter into a drawing for a free Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl Yeti and foam footballs.
Community members who stop by the booth will have an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of the sponsorship and the Village’s 6-square mile industrial park. The Village recently announced that as a result of the Bahamas Bowl, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, the nation’s industry-leading travel stop network, is seeking to build a 7,600 square-foot store and fueling station at the intersection of Pratt and Busse, which officials project would generate millions of dollars in sales tax revenue for the Village in just a few years.
Elk Grove Village is the title sponsor of the 2019 Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl that is set to take place on December 20, 2019. Makers Wanted is the tagline that serves as a call-to-action for the Village’s thriving community and the thousands of businesses that are based here. Elk Grove Village was the first time a non-tourist municipality to sponsor a bowl game in 2018, and realized an incredible 40:1 return on investment from the sponsorship.
“The sponsorship of the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl provides the opportunity to continue building the Village’s reputation globally,” said Mayor Craig Johnson, “We are enthusiastic about bringing part of the Bahamas Bowl to share with the Elk Grove Village community”.
The trophy and player’s helmet will be available at the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl tent from 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at the Elk Grove Farmer’s Market at 901 Wellington Avenue, near the clock tower. Raffle drawings for official Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl Yetis and foam footballs will take place at 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 11:00 a.m.
