Northeast Cooling Sponsors Downtown Dash 9.10.11



Get Ready for Downtown Dash on September 10th in Chicago!

Again this year, Northeast Cooling is proud to work with Leyla Arsan of Lotus Marketing Services and ING DIRECT in sponsoring their upcoming event, Downtown Dash! Northeast Cooling is the hardest working commercial refrigeration repair outfit in town and that means we are also the hardest playing outfit in town. A perfect event for us to sponsor!

Downtown Dash is an Urban Scavenger Hunt like no other!

Where else can you compete with your virtual friends in real time and in real life?  Two person teams will utilize Foursquare and Twitter to receive clues and complete physical challenges for this urban scavenger hunt. Think “The Amazing Race” only with Chicago providing the entire course! You could be running through a hotel lobby, hopping on the El, or paddling down the Chicago River to complete your challenge. Each challenge is sure to be an adventure in itself!

At 11 am on  Saturday September 10th, Downtown Dash will start at ING DIRECT Cafe in Chicago. From there a series of clues will lead you around our glorious city on an adventure to remember.

CHECK IN TO WIN! Did we mention there are Prizes?

While you’ll be using your Jedi-Social Media skills to check in at various locations and complete challenges, you’ll also be in the running for some mighty fine loot! This challenge isn’t just about fame and glory and the honor that comes with winning! Oh no! There are prizes to sweeten the deal! Just how can you win those prizes?

“Teams can win prizes for the pre-game competition, the Social Engagement Challenge, and individual challenges on event-day. Three grand prizes are available for first, second and third place teams. Follow@DTDash on Twitter and like the Downtown Dash Facebook page for hints leading up to the IRL scavenger hunt.”

Northeast Cooling will be sponsoring three (3) teams this year and providing some pretty awesome prizes courtesy of the great folks at The Beer Bistro. We still have room for two (2) more teams! So if you’re planning on entering let us know! We could be your sponsor! Leave a comment here if you are in need of a sponsor!


After a hard day of scampering around Chicago, what better way to end the day than with a party? Libations and a place to take a deep breath after all the action will round out the event.

So you want to join the fun?

  • Find yourself a partner who is also involved in Social Media (no minimum followers required).
  • Make sure you both have Smart Phones (charge them and update your apps).
  • Go to the Downtown Dash website and Register your team!
  • DONE! You are set for an adrenalin pumping day of fun, camaraderie, and healthy competition!
