This Sunday, June 21, is Father's Day so I thought I would mention a few promotions that I know of that have been developed to help celebrate Dads.
First is one that I recently wrote about on my blog; Kmart's “TRANSFORM YOUR DAD” promotion in which they've partnered up the upcoming theatrical release of the film “TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen” which will be out on June 24th. They're offering a variety of Transformer merchandise along with a free movie offer good for two tickets with a $50 menswear purchase.
Kmart is supporting the promotion with a national television spot (in both English and Spanish) highlighting men’s apparel, the movie ticket offer and the film. The interactive promotional micro-site is where consumers can redeem codes for movie tickets, download “TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen”-themed content, watch movie trailers and purchase TRANSFORMERS merchandise.

It wouldn't be Father's Day without the mention of at least one golf- themed promotion. McCormick &Schmick's Seafood Restaurants is celebrating Dad's day with a sweepstakes called "Something Special Fore Dad". One lucky dad will win the grand prize of a set of custom-fitted Titleist golf clubs and golf bag and a first prize winner from each restaurant will receive a free round of golf for two at any ClubCorp course. Entries are being accepted both online and in-restaurant. They are also offering menu specials during Father's Day weekend and a complimentary dessert for all fathers on Father's Day.
Also this weekend in honor of Father's Day, Wendy's restaurants will be giving 50 cents from the sale of every frosty to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. You can also purchase a Frosty pin for $1 each to support the organization. Or you can make your dad a Father's Day e-card at frostycard.com and 25 cents from each card will go to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
So all you women, don't forget to make this Sunday a little special for the men in your life. I just want to say a quick thanks to my Dad for all the year's he's had to deal with a mostly female family... there's three of us girls and one younger brother. Now my husband has had it very similar with a house of females as well... two daughters, no son, just a male golden retriever. I wish a very Happy Father's Day to you both as well as to all the other great dads out there.
