Jockey & Summerfest Celebrate a Successful Festival

It’s a wrap!  Summerfest, the World’s Largest Music Festival, has come to an end.  Located in Milwaukee, WI, this annual event ran for 11 days and attracted a whopping 878,636 people.  The festival welcomed music’s biggest superstars and local talents to its many stages.  In addition to the great music, Summerfest-goers enjoyed tasty food, spectacular fireworks, fun games, unique shops and much more.  Summerfest had a little something for everyone to enjoy.

As the official sponsor of the exciting “Jockey® staycool hole-in-one” attraction, we were thrilled to be a part of this mega-music event.  The Jockey® hole-in-one challenge put golfers’ swings to the test as they hit (up to three balls) at the lakefront’s lagoon island green.  The prize for the first participant to hit a hole-in-one included an all-expenses-paid Mexican resort vacation.

So, you’re wondering, did anyone hit a hole-in-one?  Nope.  Unfortunately, we did not have any golfers strike a lucky hole-in-one.  But, we had some that came really close!  Here are some fun stats from the Jockey® staycool hole-in-one challenge:

  • 7,983 people paid $6 for 3 golf balls
  • 23,949 total golf balls were hit
  • 10,000 Jockey® staycool coupons were distributed to participants

 

Other interesting facts, fun stats and cool info from the BIG GIG include:

  • 878,636 people attended Summerfest (22,382 more than last year)
  • A new Commemorative Opening Day Ticket was introduced
  • Summerfest’s Biggest Bang Ever fireworks show was heard in Michigan
  • Summerfest Headliner Release Parties were held to let fans “be the first to know” which bands would perform
  • Jockey was featured as a first-time Summerfest sponsor
  • 6,567 runners representing 46 states and 12 countries participated in the event’s newly created Rock ‘n Sole Half Marathon and 10K Run

 

Next year, Summerfest will celebrate its 45th Anniversary.  Until then, Jockey® wants to give a special thank you to both Summerfest for allowing us to be a part of this special summer celebration and to the great fans that stopped by the Jockey® staycool hole-in-one challenge.

Staycool everyone,

The Jockey® team

Now That’s Cool Underwear! Jockey Launches Jockey staycool

We want people to wear cool underwear. Really. Jockey is introducing Jockey® staycool, innovative underwear for men and women that regulates skin temperature, helping to keep the wearer feeling cool and comfortable all day long.

Jockey® staycool (http://www.jockeystaycool.com/) incorporates an Outlast® technology treatment that uses phase change materials (PCMs) that absorb, store and release excess heat to maintain optimal external body temperature. The treatment is printed onto the fabric, creating an invisible microclimate of comfort between the skin and your garment by regulating temperature.

 Jockey is the first company to market both women’s and men’s underwear treated with Outlast® technology to the U.S. market, which was  originally developed for NASA to help balance temperature fluctuations in space.

“Jockey has always emphasized innovation and comfort,” said Jockey President and Chief Operating Officer Ed Emma. “The new Jockey® staycool collection really takes underwear to the next level by offering a solution to helps consumers stay cool and more comfortable, and we believe that people will absolutely love it.”  

 Women’s Jockey® staycool garments are made from 95% Cotton/5% Spandex and men’s are 100% cotton. The Jockey® staycool line currently includes:

  • For Women: Reversible Crew Neck / V-Neck Shirt; Reversible Crew Neck/V-Neck Tank; Bikini; Hi Cut; Modern Brief
  • For Men: Crew Neck T-Shirt; V-Neck T-Shirt; Low Rise Brief; Boxer Brief; Athletic Midway Brief

 The Jockey® staycool line is available in multiple colors with a suggested retail price of $21 for women’s tops, 2/$27 for men’s, and 3/$22.50-$29.50 for underwear.

 Tim Tebow, pro quarterback and Heisman trophy winner, says he wears Jockey® staycool as often as he can. “What I like about Jockey® staycool is that it just feels great, fits me well, and keeps me cool and comfortable. And hey, if it’s good enough for astronauts, it’s good enough for me!”

Look for the Jockey® staycool online, print, in-store and TV campaign featuring Tim Tebow.

 Plus, find out why Tim Tebow’s t-shirt is cooler than yours and take the Jockey® staycool Challenge—you might win a chance to meet Tim during a VIP weekend getaway! Visit the Jockey® facebook page to learn more about Jockey® staycool and to register for a chance to win one of two grand prizes: a VIP trip for two to New York City to meet Tim Tebow and enjoy a $250 shopping spree, or a VIP trip for two to meet Tim at the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic at TPC Sawgrass. The contest starts March 16, 2011.

 The Jockey® staycool feeling:

  • In blind touch tests, the majority of those asked to identify the Jockey® staycool t-shirt did so successfully, concluding that the Jockey® staycool t-shirt literally felt cooler to the touch!
  • The “feeling” of Jockey® staycool is otherwise more subtle: The soft, cotton garments wear no differently than other high quality cotton underwear, but the built-in technology means that they’re working to keep you more cool and comfortable—something wearers notice and appreciate.

 Outlast  is a worldwide pioneer in developing temperature-regulation technology, and Outlast® technology has been used successfully in apparel, footwear, bedding, medical product and industrial applications. Outlast® technology was inducted into the Space Hall of Fame in 2005 and is the only Space Certified Technology in the apparel market.
