I want to include a valuable goodie in the Swag Bag. *
Each attendee at our event will receive a bag with their beverage of choice (wine or tea) and your freebie. Keep your company name in a new customer’s mind, long after the event is over.

You are invited to provide 125 pieces of whichever item you’d like to distribute. Bring them to Sententia Vera Cultural Hub by February 1st, 2021.

TIP: The quality of your swag reflects your brand. Think about contributing something you’d be excited to receive yourself. We all love getting cool stuff like pens, tote bags, discount coupons, and more.

Please provide the following information:

Please describe the item you are contributing to the Swag Bags. Remember, we'll need 125 of them.
