“This was certainly an unexpected surprise. I was on the road, returning home, when I got the call,” said Mr. Foy. “It’s not every day you get a beautiful brand new casket for free just by dropping your card in a box.” (The entry box was a miniature casket representing one of Sich’s upcoming casket models.)

The “Heritage,” which was one of the six caskets showcased at the Sich booth, is constructed of solid Paulownia hardwood featuring an elegant Satin Mission Brown finish with Khaki Cross Weave interior.

The Casket Giveaway was one of numerous unique activities surrounding Sich Casket’s debut at the NFDA Convention. Attendees were first surprised and entertained by a flash mob just outside the exhibit hall, all wearing maroon Sich t-shirts, emerging through the waiting crowd singing “God Bless America.” At the Sich booth, lovely models handed out banana and strawberry-flavored fortune cookies. Banners across the booth declared that Sich was “The best thing to come out of China since soy sauce.”

“We wanted to make sure that everybody knew who we are and that ours was the booth to visit at the Convention,” said Sich founder and CEO Sirius Chan. According to numerous sources, both within the company and outside, Sich’s booth was extremely well-attended, all the more unexpected given that they were a first-time exhibitor.

“We want to congratulate Paul Foy on his winning our casket. And, of course, some family in the near future will benefit from it as well, which makes this contest very worthwhile,” added Mr. Chan.

Mr. Foy will take delivery of the casket from his local Sich distributor, Pete Rezanka of M. Solomon Casket, Middletown, NY, who had encouraged him to drop his card into the entry box to begin with.
