A Specially Gifted Christmas in Roswell
If you’re like me, you want your hard-earned money to go to businesses that share similar values as you. Businesses that care about giving back and making a difference in the community. Businesses that support the same causes that mean a lot to you. I feel good about spending money at those places, knowing that I am, in a small way, making a difference along with them.
At Specially Gifted, our business partnerships mean so much to us. We could not do the important work that we do as an organization without the support of our generous partners. Plus, it is always so encouraging and rewarding to get to work with businesses who have a heart for the deserving community we serve.
Since the inception of Specially Gifted, we have been blessed with the support and partnership of many businesses in Downtown Roswell. Having grown up in and having now made a home for my own family in the area, it makes me proud to work with business owners in my community to benefit local families with children with special needs while simultaneously promoting their businesses to the rapidly growing Specially Gifted community.
We are so grateful for all of the businesses that participated in our recent event, A Specially Gifted Christmas in Roswell. The participating businesses offered a complimentary item or discount and a punch card featuring all of the offerings was created and sold for $25 per card.
This event raised $625 for SGF thanks to all of the businesses that participated and those who purchased the cards!
This was our first time doing an event like this and it was a great opportunity to connect with local businesses to learn about them and to share with them about Specially Gifted as well. We look forward to hosting more events like this in the future and to seeing what additional partnership opportunities these new relationships bring.
We are so thankful for our amazing Specially Gifted community (you!) and we ask that whenever you happen to be in the Downtown Roswell area, that you would consider supporting the businesses that have supported Specially Gifted. I will list them below and highlight a few details about each business. And don’t forget to tell them we sent you!
Deep Roots Wine Market & Tasting Room
As a lover of good wine, this partnership was especially exciting for me. My husband and I frequent Deep Roots for date nights, and I really enjoy the atmosphere and being able to sample different wines from their vast selection. They have what are essentially fancy wine vending machines and you can select from a taste, a half pour, or a full glass. They also have good food and host fun wine-related events as well. They were kind enough to offer a complimentary half pour of your choice (valued at over $20 depending on the wine!).
Crazy Love Market & Coffeehouse
Right up there with my love of good wine is my love of good coffee, so to have both featured on the punch card was a dream come true! Not only does Crazy Love offer delicious coffee and treats, but it offers a comforting environment to cozy up with a good book or to get some work done. In need of a gift for Christmas, a birthday, wedding, or other special occasion?? Their market has you covered and you’ll probably find something for yourself too while you’re browsing, I know I always do. They were eager to partner with Specially Gifted and offered a complimentary coffee to be featured on our punch card.
We all need good gift ideas from time to time, and Oli+Ve is my GO-TO. This fun, interactive, educational tasting boutique has something for everyone between their selection of highest Quality EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil), flavored olive oils and aged Balsamics. They offered a complimentary free mini bottle of one of their delicious oils or vinegars of choice to be featured on the punch card. A visit to Oli+Ve is sure to make for a unique and enjoyable shopping experience!
Cheeky Chic Spray Tans & Beauty Bar
As someone who is severely lacking in the melanin department (and who knows better than to use tanning beds!!), a weekly spray tan is a must for me. I tried to love spray tan booths but after coming out splotchy one too many times, I finally found Angie at Cheeky Chic. What a difference her custom spray tans have made for me. She makes the whole experience comfortable and enjoyable from start to finish and will have you feeling like a bronze goddess a matter of hours later. I can’t recommend her and her business enough and I love the fact that she cares about the community that SGF serves. She has partnered with SGF in the past and she offered a 20% discount on her services and products to contribute to our punch card.
If you are looking for an enjoyable dining experience in Roswell, look no further! Saucy has a great atmosphere, yummy craft cocktails, and delicious food. They obviously have a heart for the community as well because once they heard about the mission of Specially Gifted, they were quick to partner with us and offer a 15% discount on all purchases to add to our punch card offerings.
CBD Store & More
We have a special place in our hearts for CBD Store & More because they were one of the very first businesses to partner with SGF when we were first starting out three years ago. They have continued to be kind and generous partners over the years and offered a 20% discount on all of their products. Between their selection of high-quality products and their extremely knowledgeable staff, you are sure to find products that are a perfect fit for you and a ton of gift ideas for friends and family as well!
Variant Brewing Company
I consider my husband a bit of a beer connoisseur (or at least a critic) and it certainly says something that Variant is by far his favorite brewery. It’s mine as well, and their recent partnership with SGF has solidified my love for the business! They have amazing beer (their Cashmere is my fav beer ever) and a great atmosphere that is dog and kiddo friendly (we’ve tested it). They were generous enough to offer a free 9oz snifter of beer of choice for the punch card. Their partnership was really exciting for me as my family clearly enjoys it there and we invite you to join us as we happily continue to support their business.
Lola’s Burger & Tequila Bar
When I first heard the combination of burgers and tequila, I was a bit confused but also intrigued. Turns out they go well together, at least at Lola’s! My hubby and I always have a great drinking and dining experience when we visit, and their staff has always been very kind. I really enjoy their margs so I was very excited when they offered a free Margarita from their Signature List for the punch card!
A Specially Gifted Christmas in Roswell Was a Hit
Thanks to everyone who helped make this a successful event, we will definitely be doing more events like it in the future! We look forward to partnering with additional businesses in the coming years as we continue to grow our SGF community and our impact.
