SUI utilized its technological resources to benefit the local charity, Magic Moments, at the 2nd annual Cask + Drum Fest held in Birmingham, Alabama. SUI provided satellite tv services at the Cask + Drum Pigskin Party, which featured tents that held large tvs arranged around living room furniture available for fans to use to watch the SEC games occurring during the festival.
Cask + Drum is a new festival in its 2nd year of operation that included not only tailgating opportunities, but also a chicken wing fest, wine & beer tasting, kid activity zone, and performances by numerous musical acts ranging from local favorites to big names on the national circuit. Funds raised by the event will fund the wishes of critically ill children throughout the state through the efforts of Magic Moments.
Magic Moments began as a local charity in Birmingham working to create magic moments for children with serious illnesses and has now grown to serve all of Alabama having granted over 4200 wishes since 1984. Donations and revenue from fundraising events such as Cask + Drum enable the organization to give magic moments to children who deserve a special day in light of the strength and bravery they show in fighting their illnesses. Magic Moments wishes that have been granted include vacations, celebrity introductions, tuition, internship opportunities, electronics, and even customized playground equipment.
