Avamere Family of Companies, a leader of post-acute services and senior living options, announced today the launch of their 15-Day #SummerTunes Giveaway, a campaign engaging people of all ages to share their favorite summer tunes with the Avamere community on its Facebook page. Entrants will have a chance to win a $20 iTunes gift card, one given per day for the duration of the promotion.
Beginning on June 13, 2014, participants can enter for a daily chance to win and sing along to video posts, read fun summer tunes trivia and have a blast with planned themed days.

summer years ago

- Flashback Fridays: Bring out the disco ball and the platform shoes, it’s all about the
- Swinging Saturdays: Jitterbug and swinging around the jukebox on Saturdays
- Soulful Sundays: A little James Brown and Motown for a Soulful Summer Sunday.
“The emotional and physical benefits of music to uplift our spirits and the spirits of those we serve are tremendous,” says Nicolette Merino, Regional Director of Operations. “We are excited to compile the songs submitted to the #SummerTunes contest into a playlist for our staff to enjoy during our various employee appreciation events during the summer.”
Participants can support the campaign by commenting on Avamere’s daily Facebook posts to share their own (or their parents’ or grandparents’) favorite #summertunes for a chance to win a $20 iTunes gift card each day.
To join the #SummerTunes fun, Avamere invites families and friends of all ages to like their Facebook page in order to receive updates and participate in the campaign. The campaign formally launches tomorrow, June 14, 2014, with one winner to be announced each day.
