Ka’Wine and Dine—an initiative where Toronto restaurants place a badge in shop windows, pledging to give Kawhi Leonard free food for life if he re-signs with the Raptors. The campaign leveraged Instagram as a central hub for awareness and promotion, and also included KawineAndDine.com where businesses could download and print stickers for free.
