ASHLAND CITY, Tenn.– Leading water heater manufacturer A. O. Smith (www.hotwater.com) selected contractor Brian Drewes, of Drewes Plumbing and Heating, Inc. of Ramsey, N.J., to attend “Monday after the Masters,” a celebrity pro-am event held April 15 in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Drewes, a member of A. O. Smith’s Contractor Rewards® program, received two all-inclusive tickets to the sold-out 2013 event. The celebrity pro-am golf tournament supports the educational needs of children in South Carolina and the South Carolina Junior Golf Foundation.
Notable attendees of the 19th annual tournament included PGA Tour member and A. O. Smith spokesperson Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey, two-time Grammy award winners, Hootie and the Blowfish, former NFL quarterback Dan Marino, ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning, and famed NHL Hall-of-Famer Wayne Gretzky.
Drewes was given the opportunity to meet with many of the celebrity guests as well as play a round of golf with Gainey and musician Dan Tyminski.
“Perhaps the only thing better than being treated to a star-studded weekend is that I earned it through Contractors Rewards for simply being loyal to a brand I value,” said Drewes. “My guest and I had a great time with the A. O. Smith crew, and I just can’t say enough about the outstanding treatment we received.”
Contractor Rewards is a free, point-based loyalty program in which A. O. Smith rewards its contractors for their continued support. Through this program, A. O. Smith is able to build and support positive relationships between contractor and manufacturer.
“A. O. Smith enjoys rewarding contractors like Brian for their commitment to our brand,” said Jeff Storie, senior manager contractor and brand marketing. “We strive to provide our end users with the most innovative water heating solutions out there, and this is only possible with a strong team of contractors around the country partnering with us.”
