M&T Bank, Legg Mason and Constellation Energy are challenging all companies in the greater Baltimore community to show their purple pride in support of the Baltimore Ravens as they begin their playoff march in the AFC Wild Card round this Sunday, Jan. 9, against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Companies are encouraged to allow their employees to wear Ravens purple and light their buildings to show support for the team. Participating businesses can upload photos of their team spirit to www.facebook.com/baltimoreravens. The Ravens will then select the company that demonstrates the most purple pride. The winning company will receive the Ravens' Purple Pride trophy to display in its office as well as a visit by Poe and the Ravens Cheerleaders at its next office event.
During the Ravens' 2009 playoff run, Constellation Energy's Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer Mayo A. Shattuck III and his employees earned top honors. "Every Friday during the regular season, Constellation, BGE and BGE HOME office locations become a sea of purple as Ravens fans proudly display their team colors," said Shattuck. "Now it's the playoffs, and just the like the Ravens, we intend to turn it up a notch so we can hold on to the coveted Purple Pride trophy."
"For the third straight year, the Ravens have made Baltimore proud by making the playoffs – and it's time for businesses in the city to show the team how excited we are," said Woody Collins, President and COO of M&T Bank's Mid-Atlantic Division. "I hope that businesses, large and small, will show their purple pride and hang Ravens banners, wear Ravens gear and light their buildings purple. We need to show our team that the entire city is behind them as the Ravens start their run to the Super Bowl!"
"I want to challenge our community to show their purple pride and support for the Ravens – big time!" said Mark Fetting, Legg Mason Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer. "Let's really shout it out and be Baltimore Ravens creating a sea of purple throughout the city."
