Pepsi -

Pepsi reaches out to troops and their families stationed throughout the world and supports programs which recognize the contributions that these US Military servicemembers provide.

Volunteers “Inspire by Example

 Pepsi-Cola has supported Volunteer Recognition Ceremonies for more than five years and recognizes the countless hours that these invaluable military servicemembers and their families contribute to their military communities.

     Christina Callaghan, the Installation Volunteer Coordinator, stated, “The Commercial Sponsors’ prizes and products contributed to the success of the event.  The Pepsi sodas and the Pepsi prizes were a big hit. The donations we received were fantastic.  Without them there would have been no giveaways for the volunteers of the year. The door prizes and the Volunteer Stress Kits on the tables were a huge success. All attendees walked away with something be it large or small!” 

 Christina Callahan, the event coordinator, has outdone herself once again and hosted more than 700 Volunteers and their guests.

The Volunteer Theme:

Inspire by Example!



Volunteers entered the Patrick Henry Village Grand Ballroom, where all seats were filled, with standing room only.

As each volunteer entered and registered for the event, their first Welcome was brought to them by Pepsi-Cola.



The volunteers would all leave with something in their hands. Their Stress Packs recognized their unselfish commitments.

The evening’s entertainment involved the USAREUR Choir and sang modern and upbeat songs in tribute to the Volunteers.





The US Flag was carried and part of the opening ceremonies and was carried by the local girl scout unit.

The Pepsi display was set up at the entrance of the event, which allowed people to sign up for MilitaryPartners Win Big on the Web sweepstakes.



A table was inserted at the front of the Ballroom and Pepsi was in the center of the display.

Sponsorship of Volunteer Ceremonies


     Princess Burke, Mannheim Special Event Coordinator, stated that the combined Mannheim/Darmstadt Volunteer Ceremony was a huge success due to the support of Pepsi.  The American Express gift vouchers were part of an overall event raffle and all attendees enjoyed a refreshing Pepsi.  Ms. Burke stated “these gifts combined with AAFES’ Inspire by Example cake recognized the importance of Volunteers and their contributions that they make.”

            The Volunteer Ceremonies are important programs in the military communities. They help to ease the assignments of an overseas deployment.  Christina Callaghan mentioned that “the Volunteer Recognition Programs continue to depend on donations and sponsorships and look forward to maintaining the good relationship the Volunteer Office has with local private organizations and businesses.”

             Thanks to Pepsi Cola and other commercial sponsors, these Volunteers could receive the recognition and praise that they deserve.  Each year the programs get larger and larger and through the initiatives of commercial sponsors, the events provide incentives to increase the awareness, attendance and participation of the military Installation Volunteer Programs.



On behalf of the Volunteer Coordinators, we sincerely thank Pepsi for all of its support!

Cheers to Pepsi!

Mannheim Albert Schweitzer Basketball Tournament

       The Albert Schweitzer Basketball Tournament, celebrating more than 20 years since its inception to bring countries together.  During the Cold war, this tournament proved to be invaluable in bringing eastern countries closer to the west, through a basketball championship event that took place on Mannheim’s US Military Fenley Barracks.  The program drew thousands of spectators; both military and civilians to watch the worlds’ best compete for the Globe. MilitaryPartners, together with Pepsi’s generous support, made this event unforgettable for the US community’s involvement and provided refreshments to servicemembers and their families.  Moreover, the monies generated from the sale of the Pepsi helped to underwrite the cost of the program, which brought in needed revenue to the local Non-appropriated instrumental fund.


Albert Schweitzer Game Series




The Radio Interview helped increase the awareness of this important program.  The Pepsi gift voucher was a huge listening draw.

A lucky fan to cheer on the US team to victory.  Unfortunately, the Chinese defeated them.

The Pepsi display in the front entrance tent was a draw and a success in getting people to sign up and win the offered prizes.

Thanks to Pepsi the “Friendship through Sports” Albert Schweitzer Tournament was a success and enjoyed by all.
