Marlins Press Release
Teacher Appreciation Night - May 11
Teachers in Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties to be Recognized
Take our local teachers out to the ballgame! That's just what Office Depot is doing by inviting 700 South Florida area teachers to Marlins Park for a special "Teacher Appreciation Night."
As an official partner of the Miami Marlins, Office Depot is presenting "Teacher Appreciation Night" with its Star Teacher loyalty program on May 11 at 7:10 p.m. during the first in a series of three games versus the New York Mets.
More than 700 "Teachers of the Year," along with their guests, are expected to fill Marlins Park during "Teacher Appreciation Night" compliments of Office Depot. As part of the special evening at the ballpark, one teacher each from Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties will be recognized on the field during a pre-game ceremony honoring them as "Teachers of the County" with plaques and $500 Office Depot gift cards.
A ceremonial first pitch will be thrown by Office Depot Senior Vice President of North America Retail, Juan Guerrero. "This is a unique opportunity to partner with the Marlins on a special night recognizing the efforts of our local teachers." Guerrero said," We are so proud to show our appreciation for these teachers and honor their commitment to educating our children," Guerrero said.
All teachers attending the game will receive an Office Depot Star Teacher tote bag, Star Teacher t-shirt, and an exclusive Star Teacher coupon offer. Plus, they can join Office Depot this summer for "Teacher Appreciation Week" when teachers obtain extra savings on their purchases, receive an exclusive giveaway bag filled with school supply product samples including a coupon book, and enjoy a free breakfast. Teachers can visit www.mystarteacher.com/tab in June for dates and local store information.
Office Depot is also offering all teachers an opportunity to enroll in the Office Depot Star Teacher loyalty program at the game. Enrollment is free, and teachers earn 10 percent back in rewards on ink, toner, and paper, and an instant 15 percent discount on copy and print services. Star Teachers also receive exclusive member offers and invitations to events throughout the year.
