Framingham, MA (PRWEB) February 1, 2010 –-
Punchbowl Software, Inc., developers of the start to finish party planning site MyPunchbowl.com, today announced a partnership with Groundhog.org, the official website of The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. As a platinum sponsor, MyPunchbowl.com will be the exclusive provider of eCards for Groundhog.org.
With this partnership, the estimated one million visitors to Groundhog.org this month can send free eCards for Groundhog Day. Visitors can choose from a variety of customizable Groundhog Day eCards that can be personalized with colors, text, fonts, photos, and even video. Guests who register to send eCards on Groundhog.org will also have complete access to MyPunchbowl.com.
“We are delighted to make MyPunchbowl eCards available on Groundhog.org,” said Bill Deely, President of The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. “The addition of eCards to the site will give those who revel in Groundhog Day a way share the merriment with family and friends.”
MyPunchbowl and its founder have nostalgic ties to the holiday. In 1997, Matt Douglas drove twelve hours to Punxsutawney, PA to partake in the Groundhog Day festivities. The trip resulted in entrance to the “Inner Circle,” an article on the front page of newspapers around the country, and the birth of a tradition — an annual Groundhog Day party.
“We’re excited to be the exclusive provider of eCards for Groundhog.org,” said Matt Douglas, CEO, Punchbowl. “It’s a pleasure to be officially associated with such an illustrious and amusing organization.”
