Halloween has come and gone and My Big Day Marketing & Events, along with Thompson Education Foundation are thrilled with the turnout of NoCo’s Greatest Drive Thru Trick-or-Treat Experience! This year it was held at the Thompson School District Building in their parking lot. With 40 staff and volunteers and many amazing sponsors and booth vendors, 3,000 attendees were able to enjoy driving through the most festive parking lot this season!
Tickets were up for grabs for less than a week before selling out. Having tickets booked in advance ensured a safe event and that every kid would get candy, as the booth vendors knew how much to bring in advance. Parents and kids from all over Northern Colorado drove to the venue in full costume and stayed comfortably in their vehicles for the entire duration of the event keeping it a socially distanced and safe time for everyone involved.
A bright colored numbered paper was placed on the windshield of each car letting booth vendors know how many kids were trick-or-treating from that vehicle. TEF provided bags to hang on the mirrors on each side of the vehicle to help keep up the flow of the event. Some came in small cars with one or two children but others found it best to bring large vans packed full of trick- or-treaters.
Smiling parents, kids, volunteers, and booth vendors was one of the many highlights of this event. The sun was out and smiling with everyone as they all celebrated the community and had fun dressing up and snacking on sweets! We were so fortunate to have fantastic Fall weather!
A HUGE thank you to all of the wonderful sponsors and booth vendors! This could not have happened this without your generosity and holiday spirit!

MBD Marketing & Events is honored to work with a growing number of nonprofit clients. Our marketing team recently began a second year of work for the state-sponsored No DUI Larimer initiative, a branch of our local nonprofit client Partners.
No DUI Larimer aims to keep impaired drivers off northern Colorado roads. Fatal alcohol and drug-caused crashes increased 22% between 2020 and 2021, making this mission more important than ever.
In Larimer County, alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs are of great concern when it comes to impaired driving. Colorado past month marijuana use for ages 12 and older is ranked 3rd in the nation and is 85 percent higher than the national average. Larimer County is home to Fort Collins’ Colorado State University, a university with a large student population – one of the reasons rates of alcohol abuse and DUI are higher than in neighboring counties.
No DUI Larimer’s call to action, “Make the Call,” is multifaceted. The program encourages the public to Make the Call for a sober ride home, to Make the Call about whether they should get behind the wheel, and to Make the Call to 911 to report suspected impaired drivers. No DUI Larimer engages the community through print, online, and television advertisements, as well as through social media with Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest accounts.
No DUI Larimer collaborates with government agencies, local law enforcement, emergency medical services (such as Thompson Valley EMS), and the Colorado Department of Transportation to deliver effective messaging and community education.
Driving Under the Infuence (DUI) charges in Colorado may come with fines, jail time, community service, education requirements, and license suspension or revocation. Of course, the greatest consequence of impaired driving is loss of life. No DUI Larimer needs your help to stop impaired driving before it happens, and when it’s happening.
Visit No DUI Larimer online to learn more about the program, and share what you learn with your family and friends. When everyone does their part, we can overcome impaired driving in Larimer County.
My Big Day Marketing and Events is celebrating their 15th Anniversary! Over the years MBD has had a number of interns... 15 in fact! Many stayed on and learned from and worked with My Big Day. Our past interns have grown and blossomed, and many still work in the event field. So where are they now and how are they doing?
Tiffany Rose is still working for MBD Events and Marketing as Manager, Magic Maker. She works as many events as she can and helps out with marketing while enjoying every moment! She is back in school for her Master’s Certificate in Marketing and hopes to stick with MBD forever! She is also busy planning her own wedding coming up in August of this year!
Katie Patterson is still with MBD Marketing and Events as Director, Community Wizard. She works events that are near her new home in Denver, travels to the mountains with us, and helps to manage as an event lead. Katie also works on marketing for some of our partners! She has her Masters in Communication Studies and is interested in community work focused in organizational outreach.
Lynzee Laney still works with MBD Marketing and Events as Coordinator, Sunshine Maker. She is also the Catering Manager at Nordy’s BBQ and Grill. She is a mother of two little ones and somehow is able to always have a smile on her face! Sarah Biekert who is My Big Day’s Coordinator, Punctuation Prodigy says, “I met Lynzee for the first time at Blue Federal Credit Union's Discovery Day in 2018, one month after I joined My Big Day. She was expecting her first child shortly at the time, and I remember being impressed by her energy and work ethic. She was one of the first friendly faces of My Big Day that I met, and I left that event feeling so excited to work for this company – fast forward three years later, and I still am!”
We caught up with the much-loved Brielle Welch to see how she is doing and she stated, “After MBD, I was an environmental educator and camp director at multiple kids camps and programs around Colorado. After that, I was the banquet manager for the Plaza Convention Center in Longmont. Next, I was a wedding coordinator at Lionsgate event center in Lafayette. Covid was hard, and I had to end my time there, but I think I was ready to leave and slow things down a bit. I am now a personal vacation advisor at Inspirato helping members book and plan their luxury vacations. I recently got engaged, and I will be married next year!”
Makenzie studied at University of Northern Colorado and interned with My Big Day a couple years ago. At the completion of her internship, she got offered a dream job in Florida, and now lives in Tampa with her fiancé!
Kasey graduated from CSU and interned with My Big Day post graduation. She is still living in Fort Collins, Colorado. She started a rope leash company with her friend in early 2018. We love your entrepreneurial spirit, Kasey!
When we asked Sarah what she is up to she responded happily saying, “An update since working with MBD, I got married in 2017 and my husband and I moved to Florida right after our wedding. We lived there for about a year, then moved to Maryland where we spent about a year and a half and then moved to Washington state and have been here for about a year and a half now. We had a little girl 1 year ago as of last week and we have been living life loving on her! I currently work as an office manager and spend our days hiking and chasing our daughter around.”
Victoria graduated with a marketing degree from University of Wyoming in 2015 and interned with MBD a couple years following. She is now living in Seattle Washington working as a marketing research assistant at Executive Insight Properties.
Yvette is one of our most recent interns, graduating from CSU in spring 2020. Yvette interned with us and one of our clients on a political campaign.She is still living in Colorado and works at A Precious Child, who MBD just happens to be planning a fundraiser for this Fall!
Our entire team is sending all of our former interns hugs and well wishes! We love watching your grow in your careers and witnessing your very full lives!
