Partnership promoted through in-store Solo brand displays

Mason, MI – With the arrival of the college football season, Dart Container Corporation’s Solo brand of products is proud to sponsor the Wuerffel Trophy and support the award’s focus on community service and academic success along with athletic achievement.

“We made a collective decision to sponsor this trophy due to the natural connection to college football for many of our products, especially Solo-branded party cups and paper dinnerware for tailgating,” said Kevin Myers, Dart Container’s Vice President-Sales/Consumer Products Division. “We also felt the qualifications and intent for the trophy were consistent with our overall company philosophy.” 

Danny Wuerffel, quarterback of the 1996 National Champion University of Florida Gators, established the annual trophy in 2005 as a way to recognize student-athletes who contribute off the field as well as on. The 2016 award went to Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight.

The award emphasizes community service over any other criteria, which is closely aligned with Dart’s commitment to giving to back to local communities through product donations, cash gifts and volunteerism encouraged among its workforce.

As part of our sponsorship, Solo is promoting the Wuerffel Trophy in eye-catching product displays in numerous retail stores throughout the nation. The displays feature customized products in 11 different color combinations that match the colors of local teams and festively contribute to game-day tailgates and gatherings.
