Eyewear and Trends: Upfront


Launching Pad

Some lucky Silhouette customers are ready for launch. The four grand prize winners of Silhouette’s Titan Minimal Art ~ Space Race Sweepstakes were recently selected. Chosen randomly from a pool of over 170 Sweepstakes finalists, each will be given an experience of a lifetime: an all-expense paid trip for two to the Kennedy Space Station in Cape Canaveral, Fla. during a live NASA space shuttle mission. One of the grand prize winners pictured here is Family Eyecare Associates of Glendale, Ariz. (l to r) Jimmy Udave, Michael Coca, Roseann Johnson, Tina Lopez and Matt Hegarty, Silhouette sales representative. The other winners are Eye Physicians Inc. of Kokomo, Ind.; Focal Point Optical of Arlington, Texas and the Southern College of Optometry of Memphis, Tenn. The sweepstakes ran from last September through February of this year. Participants received a Space Race game board and specially produced mission decals for each Silhouette frame purchased. The object was to collect all 20 distinct decals; each one representing a patch from the space shuttle missions Silhouette and adidas have been flown on since their first flight in 2000. Customers who filled the board instantly won their choice of limited-edition NASA collectibles such as flight jackets, model shuttles and memorabilia. They were then entered into a drawing to win the Grand Prize trip to the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.

Three NASA shuttle missions are scheduled to launch from Cape Canaveral this year and Silhouette’s Titan Minimal Art Space Race grand prize trip will coincide with one of them. Talk about out of this world…
