Last Saturday, the folks at Gates Toyota in South Bend, IN, hosted a Meet & Greet starring college football's Jack Kiser of Notre Dame. The event allowed people from Gates Toyota's community to meet and have their picture taken with the linebacker, grab a free poster, get autographs, and challenge #24 to games (not Football, of course, that would be unfair).
Surprise. While a meet and greet is a wonderful way for dealers to invite the community into their space, sometimes the most important meetings are not planned.
February 2022, Jack Kiser had the entire Notre Dame football team sign and sent a football to a member of his hometown who was preparing for an operation on his brain. Saturday at the meet and greet, the now recovered fan pointed to the scar across his head, explained who he was, and took a picture with Jack.
