Raising Hoops (and Funds) for Kids

VinsSJSA.jpgHere it is - my official blogging debut.  As the newest member of the Lifetime365 blog team, I'm looking forward to sharing some of my personal experiences and basketball product expertise with you.

'Tis the Giving Season!  And, if you're a regular reader of this blog, you already know that giving back is one of the things that is extremely important to Lifetime.  So, needless to say, I was excited to recently have the opportunity to participate in giving back on behalf of Lifetime at the South Jeffco Sports Association (SJSA)  Holiday Tournament in Lakewood, Colorado. SJSA is a nonprofit youth sports organization offering playing opportunities in various sports  to kids age 4-17.

The Holiday Tournament event was held at the Gold Crown Field House in Lakewood. The three-day tournament included boys and girls in grades 3-8.  It was very intense. To be a part of watching kids compete and show their teamwork was great to see. (And, a little humbling seeing some of their skills surpass  my abilities!)

As part of the event, Lifetime had a small booth where we raffled off a Lifetime Portable Basketball System.  Through our raffle, we were able to raise $210 for SJSA.  (And, of course, award one lucky winner with a new Lifetime Basketball Hoop!)SJSA2.jpg

We had a number of parents at our booth asking  us about all the different Lifetime Basketball Systems we make. It was awesome to be able to interact with the parents and chat with them about the different models we offer for the different age groups and skill levels competing.  Even though all of our portable basketball systems adjust in height, models are designed specifically to be ideal for beginners, intermediate, or advanced players depending on the features offered on the system such as size and type of backboards.  Educating our consumers about which hoop is best for them is important to Lifetime.

We are excited to partner with SJSA and look forward to continuing to work with these young kids in the future. To be able give back to the children was an amazing experience. 

By the way, since I'm talking about basketball and giving, it's seems fitting that I remind you that we are still giving away basketball hoops in our 25 Hoops for 25 Years giveaway!  We have just a few more hoops to giveaway before the end of 2011.  So, if you haven't already entered - hurry and click here!

Ambassador Huntsman Tours Lifetime China Facility and EcoHouse
Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Xiamen, China, to show our factory and new EcoHousing Initiative to Jon Huntsman Jr., previous governor of Utah and current Ambassador to China. The tour of our Xiamen facility was well organized and I could not be more pleased with the way things turned out. A bit of history. In 2008, we opened a wholly-owned and operated facility in Xiamen, China. This means we have tight control over product quality. This is a huge distinction and big advantage over imitation "Lifetime" products made in China by other companies. By having our own manufacturing facility overseas, we can be more globally competitive and more effectively and profitably manage our international sales and distribution to the more than 52 countries we sell products to worldwide. Being wholly-owned also means the facili...
Gliding with Grandpa
Still searching for that perfect Christmas gift to give your parents, grandparents,or your spouse? Here's an idea - how about a cozy Lifetime Glider Bench? Last year, I gave my Dad the Lifetime Glider Bench for Christmas. I purchased the original Lifetime Glider Bench because it matched the Lifetime Picnic Table they have in their back yard. (The Lifetime Glider Bench is also available in a Wood Alternative version that looks like real wood slats.) My Dad put his new Lifetime Glider Bench under a huge tree in the backyard at his lake house so he can sit under the shade and watch the lake. This summer when my family went home to visit, we all took turns at some point relaxing and gliding on the bench to watch the soothing waves on the lake, the crackling fire pit, or a friendly game of Cornhole. But, my favorite use was when...
