SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Jan 29, 2013) - Alongside world premiere independent films, Verve made its debut to the film world elite at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival held in Park City, Utah, from January 17-27. As a sponsor of the Project Green Music Lounge, Verve not only helped support the nonprofit's mission to protect green space for future generations and fund Back-to-Basics Summer Camps for under-served children, but it also energized Sundance attendees, from A-list celebrities and film industry executives, to VIP moviegoers.
Guests of the Project Green Music Lounge and The RE:treat lounge sponsored by Entertainment Tonight, MTV, Project Green, The Creative Coalition, CW3PR, Nikki Beach, Southwest Airlines and Minnetonka were treated to Verve Energy Drink as well as Verve Healthy Happy Hour cocktails. The Project Green Music Lounge and RE:treat were bursting with energy and provided spectacular views and hot venues for celebrity interviews, music and entertainment. Guests also received a selection of Verve Energy Drink products in celebrity swag bags distributed at the lounge-style gifting suites. Verve was shared with Hollywood elite such as Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, Naomi Watts, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Kristen Bell, Jane Lynch and others, who received Verve and Verve Zero Sugar to enjoy at the festival.
With its great taste and healthy ingredients, Verve also caught the attention of Entertainment Tonight and will be featured on the show's Sundance Special, which airs this week in the United States and internationally over the weekend.
