After marching a long and winding campaign trail, Lessing-Flynn would like to award Farmers Mutual Hail with the title of the 6th Annual Battle of the Brands Champion!
Farmers Mutual Hail campaigned in all the right ways, knocking out the competition with their marketing expertise and keeping their brand fans coming back to the polls each round.
Farmers Mutual Hail has been owned and operated by the same family for over 120 years. They provide insurance solutions and secure the financial future of farmers with Federal and Private crop insurance, Farm and Ranch insurance, and Reinsurance products.
Along with bragging rights and a pretty nifty trophy, Farmers Mutual Hail will receive $5,000 in marketing support from Lessing-Flynn to donate to the charity of their choice, the Flaughless 5k in benefit of the Wounded Warrior Project.
A member of the Farmers Mutual Hail marketing team was a good friend of Dan Flaugh, a former US Army soldier who served in Baghdad, Iraq. After returning home to Iowa, Flaugh struggled with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He unfortunately passed away in December 2011 at the age of 25.
In 2012, the Flaughless 5k was put together by Dan’s family and friends to provide support for all soldiers struggling with life after returning home from war. All proceeds of the Flaughless 5k go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Lessing-Flynn will be teaming up with Farmers Mutual Hail to provide the Flaughless 5k with marketing support in hopes of making this year’s 5k the best one yet!
Previous charities Lessing-Flynn has worked with as a result of Battle of the Brands have been the Cycstic Fibrosis Foundation of Iowa, chosen by Scratch Cupcakery, the Children and Family Urban Movement, chosen by Simpson College, and Blank Park Zoo chose to use to donation for their own charitable organization.
Thanks again to all the brands that participated in the 6th Annual Battle of the Brands!
