Last weekend, Mattress Firm had the pleasure of sponsoring Pillow Fight Day 2018. Armed with our softest pillows, we headed to the Big Apple, to square up in Washington Square Park. Here’s our recap of all the fun and the fluff!
Cases for a Cause
On a beautiful day of grins and wins, families and friends of all ages gathered for a healthy doze of competition. Between the elaborate costumes and war paint, pillow warriors came dressed and ready for the comfiest combat. Select lucky participants received official Pillow Fight Day t-shirts and one-of-a-kind in-store discounts.
At the Mattress Firm NoHo location, pillows were given in exchange for a donation to the Mattress Firm Foster Kids Program. Proceeds from the pillows went to support enrichment activities that are vital to childhood development.
All in all, Pillow Fight Day was a true bedtime story for the books. The event helped the community give back to foster kids and homeless youth in the city. And thanks to the support of our Pillow Fight participants, nearly $1,500 in donations were collected to benefit Mattress Firm Foster Kids in New York.
While we love a good feather-soft feud, in the end, The Daily Dozers are sleepers, not fighters. The world’s largest pillow fight took place back in Minnesota back in July 2015, but to us, New York’s Pillow Fight Day 2018 held a close second (in our hearts! 😊).
