Twitter Turns Followers Into Winners

Tweets Put Prizes In Hands of Plugged-In Attendees

Attendees tuned to Twitter updates received instructions on how to get passes to the VIP section when Aerosmith turns up the volume at the Appreciation Event this Wednesday night. Our winners simply showed up at the Callaway Experience in booth #3623, spotted the Over-Dressed for Oracle OpenWorld actor, whispered the secret password, and walked away with prizes including golf equipment and premium passes to the upcoming concert.

Among the winners was Geoff Garcia (pictured left), a Web tech with March of Dimes in New York. Geoff scored a sleeve of Callaway golf balls inscribed with the logo of sponsor Tata Consultancy Services along with golden tickets for the Epic venue on Treasure Island.

Other winners included Jim Flynn of Chicago, who brought his wife to San Francisco this year to commemorate their 20th wedding anniversary; Flynn plans to surprise his wife with the VIP passes.

Congratulations to all the participants, and special thanks to Callaway for their tremendous support of this exciting giveaway.


Awesome outfit and a great theme. Loved watching the "goalie" take a few on the end of the putting green. Ha! Awesome idea and well executed Callaway Experience. Bravo!
