To raise awareness of the importance of hearing health—and to spread a little holiday joy—hearing instrument manufacturer Sonic, Somerset, NJ, is launching its first-ever Facebook event, “The Sonic 12 Days of Giveaways Holiday Sweepstakes.” Beginning at midnight on Black Friday, November 29, Sonic invites everyone to get in the spirit of the season by visiting the company’s new Facebook page at www.facebook.com/everydaysoundsbetter to enter to win fantastic prizes that “make everyday sounds better.” Entry takes only a few seconds and, once entered, people become eligible for prize drawings throughout the 12-day event. A new prize and a new winner are announced each day.
Sonic is out to bring hearing awareness to the 28 million Americans who have hearing impairment by promoting a mission to “make everyday sounds better.”
”Social media allows us to engage people of different ages and backgrounds with fun events like the holiday-themed sweepstakes that also deliver life-changing messages,” says Kathy Landon, vice president of branding and professional services for Sonic. “During the holidays and throughout the New Year, we plan to take full advantage of our new Sonic Facebook page to help people understand and appreciate how important hearing health is to enjoying the many sounds that color our world.”
So what’s on Sonic’s “12 Days of Giveaways Holiday Sweepstakes” prize list? Sonic says there’s no peeking until Black Friday, but here are a few previews:
• State-of-the-art Sennheiser headphones for enjoying everyday sounds more.
• $250 gift card to ticketmaster.com to go see the musician who most makes the winner’s everyday sound better.
• A $500 three-piece Samsonite nested luggage set is a “must-have” prize for anyone looking forward to hearing that “rolling-through-the-airport” sound that means they’re that much closer to being home for the holidays.
“The Sonic team had fun choosing just the right prizes for our holiday sweepstakes,” explains Lisa Shao, US marketing manager at Sonic. “We wanted each prize to be a gentle, upbeat nod to the many ways hearing positively affects our everyday experiences. There is no denying that there is a happiness factor to healthy hearing, and this sweepstakes serves as a great reminder. If you suspect a hearing loss, don’t ignore it. Manage this as part of your overall health so you don’t miss all the joys that everyday sounds bring to your life.”
