Starkist Tuna...I love Charlie the float!

At the Virginia Beach Rock and Roll Expo several weeks ago, there were many booths of vendors that caught our attention.  We posted here about all the companies that were featured, but I could not resist a follow up on the Starkist tuna booth.  First of all, they had someone dressed as Charlie the tuna and many children enjoyed having their photos taken with him/her!  They also had a table with many fun giveaways including tee shirts, pens, pool floats and envelopes of tasty Starkist tuna.  Expo attendees got to spin a wheel to try to win any of the prizes!  Of course I stepped right up to try my luck and received a pool float.  With a beach trip on the horizon, I was thrilled with my gift.  Fast forward a couple weeks and here I am with my new toy:

Backtrack a couple weeks back to the race day, and low and behold, there was the Starkist tuna group set up at a table on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach right after the finish line.  Of course, I could not resist another spin and this time I got a tee shirt!

 The Starkist tuna people were so generous with their tuna envelopes as well.  For me, two or three lunches a week are tuna sandwiches so I was a happy racer.  Thanks Starkist!

Disclaimer:  We were not compensated in any way for this post.  We only wanted to thank Starkist for their generosity....
