Win Ogden’s Own x Deborah Czeresko Glass Decanter + Rocks Glass Set

There’s something about art that speaks to everyone. It’s not the same for everything but they call art conversation pieces for nothing. Art, of course, comes in many forms. One favorite is glass blowing. We find it incredibly mesmerizing how glass artists mold and shape melted glass into the most exquisite things. From attention-getting decorative pieces to functional art pieces. Now imagine owning something like that. A functional piece of art that will always ignite conversation. We’re here to tell you, you can own one of those when you enter to win the Ogden’s Own x Deborah Czeresko Glass Decanter + Rocks Glass Set.

Win Ogden's Own x Deborah Czeresko Glass Decanter + Rocks Glass Set

If you’re familiar with Netflix’s Reality Show Blown Away, then you’re very familiar with Deborah Czeresko, the Glass Artist who won. For those not familiar, Blown Away is a competition show, much like Top Chef or Project Runway, where glass artists compete in creating innovative artworks. If you haven’t checked it out, we recommend you doing so to see all the amazing things these artists created.

Deborah Czeresko has teamed up with Utah’s beloved Ogden’s Own distillery for a special collaboration. This collaboration, Deborah’s famous piece, “Morph”, a handcrafted glass decanter + 4 matching rocks glass set valued at $8,000.00, will go to one lucky winner. All you have to do is enter the raffle for a chance to win. The best part, you’ll also be helping out a wonderful charity.

For as little as $5.00, you can be the lucky winner of the stunning Ogden’s Own x Deborah Czeresko decanter set where 100% of the proceeds raised go to two Utah LGBTQ organizations, the Utah PRIDE Center and Equality Utah. This is an amazing and rare opportunity to both support a great cause and potentially win a one-of-a-kind artwork that any spirits aficionado would love.

Wouldn’t you love to win this conversation piece to display your favorite Ogden’s Own expression?  We’d love to hear your thoughts on this collaboration.

Hälsa Oatmilk Yogurt Love Song Contest

Hälsa Oatmilk Yogurt Launches Song Contest to Inspire and Spread Love

If there ever was a time to be inspired, this is it. As we spend more time at home with family, it can be tough to keep occupied throughout the day.  As a result, boredom, while we’re all staying at home, has led to some very interesting and creative results. So companies are thinking of new ways to keep the creativity going. Hälsa Oatmilk Yogurt, the maker of the first and only 100% clean oatmilk yogurt, wants to inspire families and help spread some love with the launch of the Hälsa Summer 2020 Love Song Contest.

Hälsa Oatmilk Yogurt Love Song Contest

Hälsa wants to know, what does love mean to you? Your response may win you lots of money; something we can all benefit from as most are unemployed and many are still waiting on unemployment checks. In an effort to bring us closer together as a family, Hälsa Oatmilk Yogurt is asking all households to share what love means to them through an original song contest for a chance to win up to $3,000!

“For us at Hälsa, love means making 100% clean and plant-based food – food that can truly nourish your body,” said Helena Lumme, Hälsa President and Co-founder. “Love is something we need now, more than ever. As we continue to offer consumers our nutritious, organic oatmilk yogurts nationwide, we’re excited to deepen our mission through our song challenge to spread love—for each other, for our bodies and for our planet.”

Hälsa Oatmilk Yogurt

The first-place winner will be awarded a grand prize of $3,000; the second place will receive $1,000; the third-place winner will receive $500. Ten honorable mentions will each win a Hälsa Love T-Shirt. To Enter the contest, write an original love song, and post it on YouTube or Vimeo before May 31st! Hälsa will judge on the basis of originality, creativity, and how well the song conveys Hälsa’s message of love (it being the most important ingredient).

Last year’s contest winner of the Art of Patrón Bottle Art Contest was Rebecca Stoneback of Asbury Park, N.J., with her entry titled, “La Abeja,” a stunning necklace representing the 60 hands it takes to produce one bottle of Patrón tequila. She created the piece by melting and sculpting glass from a Patrón Silver tequila bottle into 60 abstract beads, molded metal bee wings – representing the Patrón bee logo – around a small glass vial at the center of the jewelry, which she filled with – what else? – Patrón tequila.
