After eight years of being involved with the Lyons Outdoor Games in various capacities, Kelty decided to significantly increase their involvement this year and become the presenting sponsor for the event.
“Kelty’s ideals are really in line with those we encourage at the Games. They are all about family, friends, and hanging out in the outdoors,” said Lizzy Scully, Lyons Outdoor Games Marketing Director. “So they are the perfect partner. We are thrilled that they decided to step up and become the 2014 presenting sponsor.” Not only is Kelty donating much needed cash to make this event happen, but attendees will be able to use Kelty tents and chairs placed throughout the event.
According to Kelty’s Director of Sales Operations Alison Snider: “Lyons and the Outdoor Games are special to the folks at Kelty because of the kinds of people who live there and because of the relaxed atmosphere. It’s about community, festivals, and enjoying nature and one another rather than just celebrating a single person’s experience conquering a mountain. The Games fits with who we want to be and who are customers are.”
Snider, a Lyons resident, added that many other Kelty employees live in Lyons, but that the whole Kelty community wanted to support Lyons and give back to the community. “We want to see Lyons come back even stronger,” Snider said. “I hope there’s a big turnout for the games this year. It has been a rough year! We all need the chance to get together to laugh, share memories, and enjoy what we love about the Town.”
