New Video Captures Flannery's Inspiring Lifestyle and Philosophy
JACKSON CENTER, Ohio, March 19, 2014
JACKSON CENTER, Ohio, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Airstream has released
the brand's first "Live Riveted" stories feature video in a continuation of
the company's Live Riveted campaign designed to capture the spirit of the
Airstream lifestyle. The video focuses on Tim Flannery – champion baseball
coach, musician, surfer and philanthropist, and showcases personal and
inspiring stories capturing his passion for living life to its fullest.
"Our goal through this unique campaign is to create and connect a community of
people that encompasses the spirit of the Airstream experience," said
Airstream, Inc. President and CEO, Bob Wheeler. "Tim is a perfect example of
someone who has a passion for life and philanthropy that cannot be ignored.
Whether on the road in his Airstream, coaching baseball or playing benefit
concerts, his inspirational life embodies what it means to live riveted."
As a former MLB player with the San Diego Padres and current third-base coach
for the San Francisco Giants, Flannery's passion for life transcends baseball
as he spends his free time as a talented songwriter, avid surfer and musician
with his band The Lunatic Fringe. Flannery's philanthropic efforts also have
helped raise funds for the Bryan Stow Fund. Stow suffered traumatic injuries
from an incident on Opening Day 2011, and through benefit concerts, CD sales,
and silent auctions, Flannery has raised more than $200,000 to help support
the Stow family.
"I was thrilled to become part of Airstream's Live Riveted community and share
my story to encourage others to never give up and always live life to the
fullest," said Flannery. "I hope to inspire people to follow their dreams each
and every day, always seeking new experiences, and for me that is what
Airstream is all about."
Tim Flannery is one of many stories shared by inspiring people who embody the
Live Riveted lifestyle and featured as part of Airstream's Live Riveted
community. Tim Flannery's Live Riveted video can be viewed at:
