What better way to celebrate the season than an ice skate with family and friends at the festive Seattle Center Winterfest – trimmed with holiday cheer and entertainment? http://www.seattlecenter.com/winterfest. Locally-owned Bartell Drugs and Coca-Cola’s Northwest Region are making that wish come true with free skates and admission on Dec. 23 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. “Bartell Drugs is proud to be a part of Seattle and its surrounding communities. Our customers are the reason for Bartell’s success over the years and because of that we are always looking for ways to give back,” said John Weith, vice president of sales. “We have been working to help keep Seattle families healthy for over 122 years, so the Winterfest program is a natural fit for our customers.” Coca-Cola’s sponsorship of the event stems from the company’s “Live Positively” philosophy that informs every element of its business. “Live Positively is an expression of who we are, what we do and why we’ve been striving for decades to make a positive difference in the lives of our consumers and in the communities where they live, work and play,” said Dean McKillip, vice president of small stores for Coca-Cola in the Northwest Region. “Healthy, active living is a key pillar of that philosophy, and we’re happy to provide opportunities for our customers to get out and be active for the holidays.” The Coca-Cola Company promotes exercise as vital to everyone’s health and well-being. By supporting physical activity and nutrition education programs in the communities it serves, Coca-Cola is working to help provide workable solutions to the problem of obesity and support efforts to increase physical activity worldwide. Coca-Cola sponsors more than 280 physical activity and nutrition education programs in more than 115 countries. In all, millions of people have participated in Coca-Cola–sponsored activities in their communities.
