Student-run PR firm ImPRint Communications teams with local companies to host Curbside Classics
by Meagan Morvant
ImPRint Communications partnered with The Cajun Spoon and Curbside Burgers to host Curbside Classics, a vintage car show and pop-up movie event, on March 9 at Curbside Burgers.
“We thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this event,” said Victoria Barberio, ImPRint account executive for The Cajun Spoon. “Working to plan Curbside Classics provided our team the opportunity to improve our skills and get valuable hands-on experience.”
The ImPRint account team for The Cajun Spoon organized different aspects of the event including the event layout/flow and the event schedule. Team members have also developed a social media calendar and graphics to promote Curbside Classics for the two weeks leading up the event. During the event, ImPRint members volunteered to execute all aspects of the event from set-up to break-down.
“I am extremely impressed with the ImPRint team,” said Ryan Grizzaffi, owner and founder of The Cajun Spoon. “They have worked extremely hard and have provided excellent services.”
The event welcomed over 300 families and friends, who watched two movies throughout the night. The family-friendly movie “Turbo” began around 6 p.m., and “Starsky & Hutch” followed for the older guests. As they watched the movies, attendees enjoyed Curbside burgers, fries and shakes in a community atmosphere.
“I live in the Garden District, so I love that there was a nice community event in my neighborhood,” said Lauren Trahan, attendee of Curbside Classics. “I didn’t have to drive really far to meet up with people, and it was nice to hang out in a slightly different area of my neighborhood.”
Communications also understands the importance of serving their community. Around 30 nonperishable items were collected as entry into a raffle for a gift basket, which included The Cajun Spoon products and kitchen lagniappe as well as a Curbside Burgers gift card and t-shirt. All donated nonperishable items will be brought to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
The Cajun Spoon and Curbside Burgers hope to host similar events with ImPRint Communications again in the future.
