I partnered with Ford and the brands mentioned below on this event. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
Since starting TheUrbanRealist, I’ve always enjoyed using my platform to connect some of my favorite brands to you, our readers, in an engaging and fun way. So when I had the opportunity to work with Ford on an event, I hopped on it immediately! #URMOVIENIGHT presented by Ford was truly a night to remember! Ford allowed me to create a drive-in movie theater experience in a warehouse-turned-art gallery in Atlanta. Using several 2017 editions of the Ford Mustang, the Ford F150, the Ford Focus and the Ford Escape, we invited 50 of Atlanta’s top bloggers, photographers, and influencers to view the Academy Award Nominated film Hidden Figures from the comfort of a stationary new 2017 Ford.
Upon arrival, guests were ushered into the front gallery to try cocktails named after each of the main characters in Hidden Figures, provided by Seagram’s Gin, Absolut Vodka, and Martell Cognac. Guests also took gif photos at the #MyFordFam photo booth while they mixed and mingled.
Once we opened the main gallery, guests were allowed to sit in the stationary Ford of their choice and grab complimentary snacks and popcorn from our concession stand. Attendees were pleasantly surprised to find our gifting table which featured Ford pop sockets and one of my personal favorite’s – Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Lotion. Made with 100% Cocoa Butter (which is known for keeping your skin super soft), this is my go-to lotion during the summer! You can grab it here.
A big thank you to Ford for being the Presenting Sponsor and for working with me to create this truly one-of-a-kind event and to all of our event attendees! A big thank you to Vaseline, Absolut Vodka, Seagram’s Gin and Martell Cognac for being supporting sponsors as well. Check out the photos from the party below!
