Hamilton, Bermuda (July 25, 2016) – The Argus Group today announces that St George’s has won the month-long Argus Cup Match Pre-Game Face Off, a fun set of games and drills to promote Cup Match team spirit and determine which team has the most active supporters. The official count is in with 13,521 spirit points for Somerset and 13,925 points for St. George's.
Leading up to Cup Match, The Argus Face Off team offered wellness challenges around the Island in which the public was asked to participate in games, including Wheel of Fortune, Plinko and Bean Bag toss. The winner of each challenge earned spirit points towards his or her favourite Cup Match team and Argus closely tracked the score on their Facebook page. In addition, virtual challenges were posted on Facebook that offered the community an added opportunity to add spirit points to his or her favourite team.
Lauren Bell, Executive Vice President, Life & Pensions at Argus, says: “It was amazing to see so much friendly rivalry around the Island for the Argus Cup Match Pre-Game Challenge. On Facebook, we saw creative posts and photos of people's blue and blue and red and blue swag, including haircuts, makeup, jewelry and clothing. Out in the community, whether it was jumping rope, answering trivia questions or tossing the bean bag, we saw people of all ages getting active and spreading their team spirit! In the end, I have to congratulate both teams for bringing so much enthusiasm to our challenge. Thank you to everyone who participated and may the best team win this weekend!”
In addition to spirit points, for every participant, Argus is donating $10 to Bermuda Mental Health Foundation and Bermuda Heart Foundation.
