TRM News :: I Hosted The Chrysler Backseat Driver & Drive for the Kids Event in Mather, CA!


I've been keeping my lips sealed about my recent partnership with Chrysler, but now it's time to reveal all!! At the beginning of October I had the amazing opportunity to host the Chrysler Backseat Driver program as part of the Drive for the Kids event at Mather Heights Elementary School, just outside Sacramento, California. It was held in conjunction with the school's annual Fall Festival Fundraiser so it was an incredibly busy afternoon with lots of families enjoying food, games, booths, and fall activities. 

Parents had the opportunity to test-drive Chrysler vehicles which raised money for their school, and I had the opportunity to host trivia questions for kids as part of the Backseat Driver program. These kids were absolutely hilarious and I wish you could see all the outtakes! Check out Chrysler's blog about it and here's the video that just about wraps up the event. I'd love for you to check it out and tell me what you think!


Can you tell I was nervous? I had to pull myself together and just do it! I feel like I got the star treatment with a camera and film crew and an amazing team that directed me for the whole event!! I even had a script!!!!! As my first time taking part in a somewhat official media appearance, it was an unforgettable experience that I am so grateful I was able to take part in. I feel like it went very well, and it was all to benefit the kids' school!

 
Disclosure: I received compensation for participating in the Chrysler Backseat Drive and Drive For The Kids event. I wrote this in conjunction with my contract obligations. A HUGE thank you to Chrysler and their media team for such a great experience. This is my completely honest opinion above and may be different from yours.

You totally pulled it off. You looked every inch a celebrity. Now, you're ready for your next media appearance, I'm sure :). That is a worthwhile cause, by the way.
