FUN GIVEAWAY IDEAS
for Monday Night Welcome Reception


These giveaway ideas have been approved to be taken inside the Welcome Reception.
Please note, because of the animals, the Mirage must pre-approve giveaways that will be inside the Habitat, so if you expect your Core giveaway to be taken to the Habitat, please include that in your information so that we can get it approved.

 There is no sponsorship cost associated with these ideas, but please let us know if you are using one of these ideas so we can remove it
from this list and prevent duplication. Thanks!
