The BreyerFest Instagram Meet up Debut!

8/17/2015

We are very excited to announce the success of BreyerFest’s first Instagram Meet up, introduced this year by Breyer enthusiast, Vincent Lange! Vincent enjoys sharing his passion for Breyer collecting and customizing online through Instagram and other social media platforms. Throughout his online journey, Vincent has met many other passionate Breyer Instagrammers, including Gabrielle Scolaro and Caitlin Jordan. Shortly after becoming virtually acquainted, Vincent, Gabrielle and Caitlin decided to create the opportunity for online Breyer enthusiasts to meet in person, at BreyerFest.

The group did a great job promoting their Instagram Meet up and even created a "ticket" Instagram post, encouraging other users to attend. Any users who planned to participate in the event were simply asked to repost the ticket image as an RSVP.

Vincent, Gabrielle and Caitlin decided that the Instagram Meet up was also a great opportunity to fundraise for a local charity called Old Friends, out of Georgetown, KY, an organization which provides homes for over 100 retired racing thoroughbreds. During the meet up, five Breyer models were raffled off, two of which were donated by Instagram friends Bethany Baker, Alaina D. and Victoria W. The Instagram raffle raised $160, which was given directly to a member of Old Friends.
