Dear WOW Member,
On behalf of the Washington Redskins, I want to thank you for not only joining the Women of Washington Redskins but for making the first year of the club truly remarkable. The Washington Redskins created WOW to be a unique forum dedicated to the team’s female fans - an exclusive place for one of our most loyal fan bases to stay in touch with the team through special offers, exclusive content, events and more. By the end of the season we had much more; a community of 15,000 women that rally together in support of the team and the community.
Since the club’s launch in August, we have enjoyed an array of events including our growing tailgate parties and fun fitness events. As WOW continues to grow, our goal is to keep WOWRedskins.com up to date with exclusive content that is important to you! We have started with these six topics:
Our hope is to take all of these topics, from health and wellness to fashion, and transform them into memorable experiences for members. This season, we focused heavily on the topic of charity, hosting breast cancer survivors at the first WOW Pre-Game Party and inviting members to participate in the ninth annual Harvest Feast Thanksgiving food drive.
The Holiday Community Giveback hosted by WOW founding members - the wives, girlfriends and mothers of the Redskins organization - was another one of my favorite memories from this season. At this event, we hosted 50 children from a local school for a shopping spree in the Redskins Hall of Fame Store and each child received Redskins game tickets. As we walked around the store, it was inspiring to see children buying items for their family members before buying items for themselves. This was truly a WOW moment!
In the future, we hope to use WOW to continue to give back to the community and create more moments like these for members. It has been such a pleasure meeting you all throughout the year and hearing everyone’s Redskins stories. From fitness and networking events with the Redskins Women to food drives and exploring the latest in NFL fashion – these are the memories we hope to create in 2012 and beyond.
It is our goal for every member to get involved and become an active part of the WOW community. We hope to one day reach 100,000 female Redskins fans, but we won’t be able to do it without your support. As current WOW members, we know the Redskins have one of the most passionate fan bases in sports and the women’s club should reflect that! I want to challenge each and every one of you to get five women to sign up for the club or to forward this message on to five of your friends and family members. If we all get five people to sign up – that would mean WOW has built a community of over 70,000 women to rally behind our storied franchise.
As WOW continues to expand, it will be important to have your support in making sure WOW is a fun and unique experience for ALL female fans of the Washington Redskins. Don’t be afraid to email WOWRedskins@redskins.com with your feedback or tips.
Let’s continue into 2012 with a bang and build WOW into the best women’s club in the NFL.
Hail to the Redskins!
