#HugMeCoke machine coming April 23 to Children’s Hospital

It’s a thirst-quenching promotion that everyone can embrace. The #HugMeCoke machine returns to Augusta University on April 23.

It will be set up from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Children’s Hospital of Georgia lobby, offering free, ice cold Coca-Cola in exchange for hugs.

Even the most shy person can follow these simple steps for the best #HugMeCoke experience:

Step 1. Hug the #HugMeCoke machine. Plant your hands firmly on the clearly marked and easy-to-reach “hand” icons, conveniently located on either side of the #HugMeCoke machine.

Step 2. Reach into the dispenser and claim your cold, refreshing cola.

Step 3. (Optional) Please share your #HugMeCoke photos on social media with us at @AUG_JAGWIRE and @AUG_University.
