RUTLAND—The Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce is excited to present the Real Rutland Feud, an event that will pit local businesses against each other in an effort to raise funds for the Regional Marketing Initiative. This new annual event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24 at the Paramount Theatre with a show time of 7 p.m. It will be a great way to end the week-long Winterfest.
The Real Rutland Feud is based on the popular TV game show “Family Feud.” Every great game show needs a host; and the Real Rutland Feud has recruited Tom Heubner of Rutland Regional Medical Center.
The Real Rutland Feud will feature eight local businesses that will go head-to-head to see who will take home what will be the coveted Real Rutland Feud trophy, while raising funds for this important regional marketing initiative.
Facing off will be:
- Heritage Family Credit Union vs VSECU
- Rutland Regional Medical Center vs Community Health Centers of the Rutland Region
- Proctor Gas vs Marcell Oil Company
- TLC Homecare & Nursing vs. VNA & Hospice of the Southwest Region
The audience will also be able to get involved with the addition of “Minute to Win It” sponsored by Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty. “Minute to Win It” will take place between the rounds of feuds and will be hosted by Andy Paluch of “Come Alive Outside.” Audience members will compete for prizes by doing challenges using everyday items.
This promises to be a fun evening of laughs while raising much needed funds for the Real Regional Marketing Initiative.
Tickets are on sale now, and will be available during regular Paramount Theatre Box Office hours or online any time at paramountvt.org.
The Regional Marketing Initiative is a 10-year plan to help grow the economic vitality of the region.
“Real Rutland” is an integral part of marketing messages to grow the population and build a strong workforce for local employers.
