Interesting Fact:

In 1954, Brownie Wise inaugurated the Tupperware Homecoming Jubilee. Hundreds of Tupperware dealers from across the country came to the company's Kissimmee, Florida, headquarters for classes and motivational events. Wise gave each year's gathering a theme, with high spectacle and outrageous competitions—often for glamorous prizes.
