The support that we receive from the Griffins at our annual Corks, Pucks and Brews event to game night promotions and community support help us reach more people in in need of our services. Additionally, the staff is easy to work with and they provide wonderful results. As a community resource and a service provider in West Michigan, our goal is to help individuals with special needs or disabilities, and their families, to live extraordinary lives.

"Uccello's has been very pleased with our advertising package with the Griffins over the years. The sponsor account team staff is very friendly, fun & easy to work with. They have had some great suggestions to help grow the Uccello's brand name to fans of the Griffins, and we have seen a direct return on our investment at the various Uccello's locations in West Michigan. We sponsor quite a few fan friendly in-game promotions, and have a lot of flexibility to change as needed. The promotions give us a great opportunity to engage the amazing Griffins fans, both in the arena & via social media. The Uccello's "Tip-A-Griffin" event has grown into one of the most highly anticipated fundraising events of the year!"

"As a small business owner in West Michigan, it was always my goal to have a presence inside of Van Andel Arena. However, I was doubtful my small business could afford to be a part of it. I was glad that I was wrong. Since I began working with you and your staff, my experience has been nothing short of extraordinary. You have developed solutions that allow my business to have immediate exposure in the arena while adhering to my budget. Over the past year, I have received hundreds of texts and emails from friends, family, co-workers and customers with photos of our signs in the arena and messages like "How cool!" or "Go ProCare!" Those messages really made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. It tells me that it works!"
- Jeff Uherek, ProCare Restoration Services, Inc.
“We’re always looking for the best out of our own customer service departments, and the Griffins have consistently provided a great example of the type of experience we strive to provide. Fun, excitement and a great customer experience are what we’re accustomed to with the Griffins.”
- John Flikkema III, West Michigan Chrysler Jeep Dealers
