Portland, Ore. – Sept 7, 2009 – Still Full Moon Crazy from an exciting summer tour and the new harvest of fresh pears, the growers of USA Pears are pleased to announce the next chapter in their partnership with pop band Honor Society!

Courtesy of USA Pears, fans are being presented with the opportunity to enter to win the chance to PEAR-up with Honor Society for a Hollywood Experience when they shop for fresh, healthy, and delicious pears. Honor Society recently wrapped up a summer on the road as part of the Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009 while also at the same time headlining their Full Moon Crazy tour.  On September 19th, Honor Society will kick off their Fashionably Late tour supporting their debut album of the same name, which hits stores September 15th.  At each tour stop, fans are introduced to the world’s finest USA Pears.

Honor Society is thrilled to continue its partnership with this delicious treat – the first of its kind for pop music and produce.  Being pear lovers themselves, the band is excited this partnership will not only give fans another exciting opportunity to meet them, but also promote a healthy lifestyle. “We couldn’t be more excited about this cool program with USA Pears,” says Michael Bruno, lead singer of Honor Society.  “As a band constantly on the road, we have to pay attention to our diets so we are our best at each and every performance.  Pears are big part of that diet and we make sure to have them around at gigs, on the tour bus or during rehearsals.”

Fans can visit to find participating grocers in their area.  To enter for the chance to “PEAR-up” with Honor Society and win the grand prize of a trip for four to and hang out with the band in Hollywood (plus $1,500 in spending money), fans should visit the produce department of their local participating grocer to pick up an entry form along with their pears.  Fifty entrants will each win an autographed copy of Honor Society’s Fashionably Late album.  All prizes are awarded from a random drawing of entries.

Honor Society and USA Pears will continue their partnership through 2009, with more exciting events and promotions still to come.  Be sure to watch and for more information.
