Uncle Bob's Self Storage, the operating brand of Sovran Self Storage Inc., has again partnered with the Syracuse Crunch, a minor league hockey team, to sponsor the team’s fan-driven "Uncle of the Year" contest. During the month of March, fans will have the opportunity to nominate their favorite uncle for the award. To submit a nomination, fans must write an essay of up to 250 words giving reasons why they think their relative should be selected as the Uncle Bob's "Uncle of the Year."
A panel of judges consisting of Uncle Bob's staff members and Crunch players will review the entries and select a winner, who will be announced in an on-ice presentation at the Crunch's home game on April 12. The winning uncle will receive a 10-pack of ticket vouchers for the 2013-14 season, a team-autographed stick and a prize pack, compliments of Uncle Bob's Self Storage.
Fans can submit their essays in person at all remaining Crunch home games through the end of March at the Guest Services table or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Uncle Bob's has four locations in Central New York: Cicero, East Syracuse, Liverpool and Syracuse. Sovran, a real estate investment trust in the business of acquiring and managing self-storage facilities, operates 443 facilities in 25 states.
